James Levine Resigns From BSO

A surprising, but at the same time, inevitable, announcement has just arrived from the extremely respected and major force in classical music society: the voluntary resignation of James Levine from the Boston Symphony. 

Levine’s continuing health problems over the years and his sudden relapse last month as a result of surgical complications were the main culprits for his resignation. Constantly juggling a demanding schedule between the BSO in Boston and the Met Opera in New York has definitely taken a toll on his health.

His effective resignation date with the BSO will be September 1.  However he is expected to remain as the music director for the Met.
