I remember a visit I made to the Aspen Music Festival some years ago. I always enjoyed my time there, because I could “overdose” on music!
Many previous students regularly still return to the Aspen, Colorado Music School, to see friends and to present concerts. Violinist Gil Shaham comes often, as do pianists and conductors.
In recent years, James Levine has not been well; but I recall that when I visited Aspen last, Mr. Levine conducted Mahler’s Symphony #3 in a totally memorable performance.
Recently Mr. Levine has recovered, and he will give a concert soon with the MET Orchestra at Carnegie Hall (Stern Auditorium).

James Levine and his amazing orchestra will draw a musical picture of Antonin Dvorák, full of lyrical melody and turbulent emotions, in a concert that offers the following music:
- Carnival Overture
- The Seventh Symphony
- Cello Concerto (with the cellist Lynn Harrell)
Here is James Levine Conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No. 7:
Finally here is Yo-Yo Ma and the New York Philharmonic conducted by Kurt Masur in Dvorak’s Cello concerto:
