James Levine has died

The scandal that swirled around the end of James Levine's career at the Met seemed ho hum to me.  Why?  Because I'd heard about it years ago and assumed someone somewhere was protecting him.  When I wrote about him here I was interested mainly in his musical legacy.  I think in the old days it was assumed that there was a lot of fooling around.  I remember a professor at I.U....  

I'm happy with how the Met is now, so Levine's departure has meant a lot less to me than I expected.
