About Eugene Levinson:

Eugene Levinson, recently retired principal bass of the New York Philharmonic, enjoys a worldwide career as soloist and teacher. Born in Kiev, he graduated from the Leningrad Conservatory with a D.M.A. and upon graduation became its youngest faculty member.

In 1985 Mr. Levinson joined the New York Philharmonic and has appeared frequently as a soloist with the orchestra. He has performed the Koussevitzky Concerto and the Tubin Concerto and appeared in a PBS Live from Lincoln Center broadcast of Mozart’s “Per Questa Bella Mano” with Thomas Quasthoff and Ricardo Muti. A member of The Juilliard School bass faculty since 1985, he was co-chair of the bass department from 1992-2002. He has also been a faculty member of the Aspen Music Festival and School and the Sarasota Music Festival since 1979. Mr. Levinson has led master classes, coachings and workshops at Tokyo’s Toho School of Music, The Hague State Conservatory, Madrid’s Reina Sofia Superior, Lausanne’s Conservatory of Music, and Lorin Maazel’s Castleton Festival in Virginia. Many of his students are members of the world’s most prestigious orchestras. In 2003 Mr. Levinson received the Special Recognition Award in Orchestral Performance from the International Society of Bassists.

Mr. Levinson’s recordings are available on the Cala label. Earlier recordings, remastered for CD by Carl Fischer, were released in 2004. His publications include a technical method book entitled The School of Agility (published by Carl Fischer), Misek Sonata #2 in E minor (International), J.C. Bach Adagio (International), Franck Sonata (Musici), and Per Questa Bella Mano (Carl Fischer). After many years of maintaining a duel schedule of teaching and playing in the orchestra, Mr. Levinson is delighted to now be able to devote his time exclusively to teaching, publishing, and influencing the broader discourse of bass pedagogy.

In December 2011 he served as a judge for the IV International Serge Koussevitzky Double Bass Competition in St. Petersburg, Russia. He also served as a judge for the VII International Johann-Matthias-Sperger-competition for Double Bass in Schloss Burg Namedy/Andernach, Germany. Mr. Levinson is currently working with Boosey and Hawkes on a book of orchestral excerpts designed to instruct advanced students and professionals in the art of orchestral auditions.

Currently, Mr. Levinson is part of the Guest Artist double bass program at Florida International University in Miami, Florida and also guest principal double bass with the Miami Symphony Orchestra.

Les Miserables

Wednesday, Oct 16, 2019 various times - English

Cameron Mackintosh's epic musical is back! Based on Victor Hugo's novel, this sweeping epic is one of the most popular musicals in history, a tale of love and revolution that draws audiences in time and time again. Its classic score, written by Herbert Kretzmer and Claude-Michel Schonberg, includes the timeless 'I Dreamed A Dream', 'One Day More' and 'Do You Hear the People Sing'.

Nominated for three Tony Awards, this latest Broadway production is a more than worthy chapter in Les Miserables' long history. It debuted at the Imperial Theatre in 2014 and ran for two years, drawing huge acclaim for its stripped down storytelling, which jettisons some of the bloat attached to previous productions, and the atmospheric video projections that lend the show a hugely cinematic backdrop.

True West

Wednesday, Oct 16, 2019 various times - English

This American classic explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. Sons of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Sal Kimmer when Lee, a demented petty thief, drops in. He pitches his own idea for a movie to Kimmer, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee’s trashy Western tale.

Discussion in Situ with Martin A. Tsang on Sunday, September 29, 2019 from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

MOAD presents a series of public programs related to its current exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet. Rather than a formal sit-down lecture, MOAD's "Discussions In Situ' are engaging, conversational, and scholarly exhibition tours lead by a wide array of interdisciplinary experts. While pointing to specific art work and archival material on view, Tsang sparks a conversation on "The Hidden Cabrera,' highlighting Cabrera's biography and research methods.

Where the Oceans Meet is an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Edouard Glissant. The show is comprised of an international group of artists and collectives consider notions of shifting and porous borders€”and how crossing borders has shaped our world. They articulate various aspects of the two scholars' thoughts on race, diaspora, colonialization, creolization, language, and territory, particularly with regards to Miami's position in a world that never stops turning.

Where the Oceans Meet will be on view until January 12, 2020.
