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.

David performed at the Felicia Blumenthal Music Center  on December 3, 2005

Mr. Levine's 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.
