Maestro James Levine in his last days was surrounded by such controversial allegations. I was very vocal about the alleged matter yet still, I reflect on his mastery both as conductor and pianist. #JamesLevine #kathleenbattle #jessyenorman #marilynhorne #metropolitanopera pic.twitter.com/Iz4MgL8a3U
