Recorded live on May 19, 2013, this concert with the Met Orchestra marked Maestro Levine’s return to the stage after a two-year absence due to injury. His appearance at Carnegie Hall was greeted with a standing ovation which led to a concert that garnered near universal audience and critical praise.
 
Levine is a winner of ten Grammy Awards, five of which have been with the Metropolitan Opera; and since his company debut in 1971, he has built the ensemble into one of the world’s premiere orchestras.
 
The guest artist at this Carnegie Hall concert was pianist Evgeny Kissin – a frequent collaborator with Levine and a celebrated performer around the globe – whose previous recordings earned awards including the Edison Klassiek in The Netherlands, the Diapason d’Or, and the Grand Prix of La Nouvelle Académie du Disque in France, along with two Grammy Awards in the United States.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
