Levine out... in Boston

After a press release earlier today about his withdrawal from the Boston Symphony's tour dates this month (including at Carnegie), the BSO press office just announced that James Levine will be out as music director there from this September.

When his back issues began to really be a problem again in recent years, it was clear that something had to give. As a New Yorker, I'm glad it's not the Met... Let's just hope he recovers in time for Valkyrie (his first priority, I'm sure) and Trovatore (fingers crossed).
