James Levine has been, over the past half century, one of the most famous opera conductors in the world. At the same time, he has achieved a distinguished reputation as a symphony conductor. As in the opera house, one of his specialties is Mozart, and in the concert hall, he has recorded much of the music of Gustav Mahler.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear a sampling of Levine as orchestral conductor.
