Following his highly acclaimed conducting of Wagner's "Lohengrin" and two symphonic concerts at the legendary Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires in September and October of 2011, he was immediately invited back to conduct Enescu's monumental "Oedipe" there in May of 2012, the first staged performances of that important opera in all of the Americas. The triumph of that led to his being appointed as the principal guest conductor of the Colon. His 2013 season began with extremely successful productions of Rachmaninoff's "Aleko" and "Francesca da Rimini" and "Die Frau ohne Schatten" by Richard Strauss, with rave reviews in Argentina and Germany. These will be followed by Verdi's "Un Ballo in Maschera" in December. He will conduct the American premiere of Detlev Glanert's celebrated opera "Caligula" in 2014 at the Colon in addition to productions of "Idomeneo" and "Madama Butterfly". He will return to the Theatro Municipal in Sao Paulo in 2014 to conduct new productions of Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana" and Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci".
His 2010 recording with the London Symphony of works by Michael Colina, which received rave reviews, was followed by the September 2012 release of a second CD with the London Symphony of music by Colina, both on Fleur de Son Classics and distributed by Naxos. His recording of the fascinating 1899 edition of Bruckner's Sixth Symphony with the Symphony Orchestra of Norrlands Opera, the first since 1952, will be followed in 2013 with the world premiere recording of the 1892 edition of the Second Symphony.
His 2010 orchestration of Busoni's monumental piano work, "Fantasia Contrappuntistica", published at the end of 2010 by Edition Tilli, was followed by a new orchestration in 2011 of Liszt's "Fantasia and Fugue on the theme BACH", in honor of the Liszt bicentennial. These works have been performed in Finland, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay and are scheduled for performances in Germany under his direction at the Berlin Philharmonic Hall (Busoni) and in Hannover (Liszt) in 2013-14. His orchestration of Franck's Piano Quintet was published in 2012 and will have it's world premiere with the Helsinki Philharmonic under the direction of Leif Segerstam in 2014. His recent orchestrations of four Rachmaninoff works will be published in January, 2014 and he will conduct the world premiere of the entire suite with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic at the Teatro Colon in April, 2014.
Edition Tilli completed the series of his transcriptions for piano solo and cadenzas to Mozart concertos in 2013. Levin's recordings of many his piano works can now be heard on You Tube, along with the scores. Click here to see them.
