In other news, oh Jimmy! Remember how I said I heard Beethoven's 9th at the BSO and it rocked? I forgot to mention the incident of which this article speaks, but yeah... I was so totally AT that particular infamous concert! The fall occurred on bow number, oh, I don't know... 2 or 3 or 47 or something. James Levine just slipped off the podium and SPLAT. The applause died instantly and there was a collective gasp throughout Symphony Hall as everyone waited in silence. When he got up again, the place burst into applause again. Then, he did a little jig - kicked both his feet out to the sides with a silly look on his face - and bowed again. Apparently he wasn't as injury-free as the jig indicated. Poor Jimmy.
