HALL CONCERT BY JAMES LEVINE AND
THE MET CHAMBER ENSEMBLE ON
SUNDAY, JANUARY 30 HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Carnegie Hall today announced that conductor James Levine
and The MET Chamber Ensemble must regrettably cancel their concert scheduled
for this Sunday, January 30 at 5:00 p.m. in Weill Recital Hall. Maestro Levine,
who earlier this week was forced to cancel a performance of Verdi's Simon
Boccanegra at The Metropolitan Opera due to a viral infection, was unable
to rehearse this week for Sunday’s MET Chamber Ensemble concert. The demanding
program, which included pieces by Leon Kirchner, George Perle, Lukas Foss, and
Johannes Brahms, required considerable rehearsal time, unavailable due to Mr.
Mr. Levine said, "This is a program of music that is particularly close to
my heart, and while I deeply regret not being able to prepare it properly for
this Sunday, I look forward to rescheduling it as soon as possible."
Mr. Levine is still scheduled to conduct tonight’s performance of Verdi’s Simon
Boccanegra at The Metropolitan Opera.
