Judith Bettina / James Levine!!

When experienced musicians come together to perform works of contemporary American composers it is an event! Such was the case last month, at Zankel Hall in New York City:

The first half of this concert program offered vocal works by Milton Babbitt and Elliot Carter well-known modern composers whose works Mr. Levine has previously performed. On the second part of the program was a performance of  Richard Strauss’  “Bürger als Edelmann” Suite.

Soprano Judy Bettina has previously collaborated with James Levine, with excellent reviews; this time was no exception:

“…the soprano Judith Bettina, a seasoned, persuasive interpreter of Mr. Babbitt’s music, was dazzling in her lucidity and commitment.”
