Notes & Reviews:

The Met Celebrates the 40th Anniversary of James Levine’s Company Debut with James Levine: Celebrating 40 Years at the Met: a Box Set of 32 CDs featuring 11 historic performances from the longtime Music Director’s record-breaking career with the company.

"An extraordinary career deserves an extraordinary tribute - which is exactly what the Metropolitan Opera has accomplished to mark the fortieth anniversary of James Levine's 1971 company debut...In celebration of Levine's forty-year Met career, the Met has issued two boxed sets of Levine performances, all captured live, and most of which have never been previously available in any format...the sets stand as a fitting testament to an era and a career that will never be equaled - and deliver the goods at a very fair price." -Opera News
