section you will find all the latest official information about
David E. Levine.
CD Handel, Mozart and Janáček is now available.
A summary of the review of Janáček's Otčenáš can
be found in the reviews section. We at Slalom
SDL Ltd. hope that you will be as delighted as much as we
are with the release of this third CD with Mr. Levine. A
fourth CD is only now in the planning stages. We look forward
to a CD of Baroque Vocal Music accompanied by Maestro Hagai
Janáček's Otčenáš has been released. On this same album, you
can also hear a remastered version of Mr. Levine's trademark
rendition of Schumann's Dichterliebe. The sculpture "David 1"
created in honor of Mr. Levine by the famous Israeli sculptur,
Eli Ben-Sasson, graces this CD's graphics. Tenor David E. Levine
is the first artist to perform and record this electrifying
piece of music by Janáček in Israel.
Next time you
visit the Surya Hotel,
a luxury airport hotel near the Cochin International Aiport of
India, don't be surprised to hear Mr. Levine's sweet voice
over the hotel's PA system. The Dichterliebe disc was chosen by
the hotel management to be the classical vocal music exemplar in
the hotel lobby, for its discriminating guests. We at Slalom SDL
applaud the Surya Hotel for choosing Mr. Levine's debut album.
in final production stages, we bring you a critic's awed
response at the premiere performance of the piece in Israel,
back in 1997.

at the Felicia Blumenthal Music Center on December 3, 2005
performance at the Felicia Blumanthal Music Center
(FBMC) was emotional and inspiring. The FBMC hall, relatively
small, allowed for an intimate interaction with the audience,
which responded in kind with a standing ovation not only in the
hall itself, but - as Mr. Levine was leaving - in the foyer,
too. Pictures to follow soon.
sculpture considered for Otčenáš CD graphics
rendition of Janáček's masterpiece underway,
Slalom's graphics artists are considering a unique stone
sculpture to be portrayed on the cover of the new CD. This
carving, an abstract embodiment of David's talent and sonorous
voice, was created by the French-Israeli sculpturer Eli Ben-Sasson,
a close friend.
Recording of Otčenáš by Leoš
in post-production stage
breathtaking musical gem was recorded for the first time with
piano accompaniment, according to Janáček's original autograph.
