Levine back at the BSO

October 10, 2010 § Leave a comment

Last night’s performance of Mahler 2 was fantastic. Levine looked shaky on his feet, using a cane to move slowly from the wings to the front of the orchestra, but the music was everything I’d hoped for. I’m not sure how to put it into words, but by the end my heart was racing – I can’t remember ever having been so moved by a performance.

At the end, Levine made two curtain calls, and as he left the second time, he tossed his cane over his shoulder, eliciting laughter from some of the audience. He walked a little more gingerly, too, perhaps with the relief of having completed the performance.
