James Levine Gets Emergency Surgery

9/30/2009 12:03:00 AM
Eeek. It seems like just yesterday that Maestro Levine was bouncing back from some recent health issues (here). I got to see him on his first performance back. He looked good. Now, the poor guy is out again due to some unanticipated back surgery.

BSO Music Director James Levine has had to withdraw from his upcoming conducting appearances tonight, September 29, and Saturday, October 3, at Symphony Hall in Boston, and Thursday, October 1, at Carnegie Hall in New York, due to immediate unanticipated back surgery for a herniated disc.

“All of us at the BSO are disappointed that Maestro Levine will not be able to conduct the Tuesday and Saturday subscription concerts in Boston and Opening Night at Carnegie Hall,” said Mark Volpe, BSO Managing Director. “Our thoughts are with Jim and we wish him a speedy recovery so he can soon return to the BSO podium and the glorious music-making for which he is so universally known.

He'll be missed for sure, but let's all wish him a speedy recovery and I'm sure we'll see him back on the podium soon.
