Gilbert Levine

Music Director

 Hailed as “an outstanding figure in the world of international music television,” Sir Gilbert has led the U.S. television debuts of such world renowned European orchestras as the Staatskapelle Dresden, Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Educated at Juilliard, Princeton and Yale, he served as assistant to Sir Georg Solti and Klaus Tennstedt. Maestro Levine first made international headlines when he was named Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the Kraków Philharmonic in 1987, becoming the first American to head a major orchestra behind the Iron Curtain. He conducted that orchestra on tours to Europe, the Far East and the major concert halls of North America, including the Kennedy Center in 1993.

From 1988-2005, Levine created and conducted concerts for His Holiness Pope John Paul II, at the Vatican and around the world, including the historic Papal Concert to Commemorate the Holocaust (1994) and the Papal Concert of Reconciliation (2004). Their 17-year close artistic collaboration is detailed in Sir Gilbert’s memoir, “The Pope’s Maestro,” published by Wiley in the U.S. and the UK in 2010, and in the Pope’s home country of Poland in 2012.

For his artistic contributions to better understanding among people of all faiths, Gilbert Levine was invested by Pope John Paul II as a Knight-Commander of the Equestrian Order of Saint Gregory the Great, the highest Papal Knighthood accorded a non-ecclesiastical musician since Mozart. Pope Benedict XVI further recognized Levine’s work when he bestowed upon him the Silver Star of Saint Gregory, the highest Pontifical honor accorded a Jew in Vatican history.

Naomi Levine


Ph.D., Rutgers University, 2015

I work on Victorian poetry and poetics, prosody, aesthetics, and the history of criticism. My research investigates the relationships among formal, historical, affective, and evaluative conceptions of poetry in the nineteenth century and after. My first book, The Burden of Rhyme: Victorian Poetry, Formalism, and the Feeling of Literary History (forthcoming from University of Chicago Press in Fall 2024) examines nineteenth-century ideas about the origin of rhyme and their significance for the theory and practice of Victorian poetry and for the development of literary studies. I’m also at work on a second project, “The Badness of Victorian Poetry,” about twentieth-century evaluative criticism and its reception of nineteenth-century poems. In theorizing and historicizing the aesthetic category of “badness”, this project considers the entanglements of judgment and interpretation in the study of poetry more broadly.   

My essays have appeared in Victorian StudiesVictorian PoetryVictoriographiesVictorian Literature and CultureMLQ, and Literature Compass. Before coming to Yale, I was a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows.

At Yale, I have taught introductory poetry classes, a course on elegy (The Art of Losing), a junior seminar on Love and Desire in the Nineteenth Century, a senior seminar on the nineteenth-century figures of the Poetess and the Woman of Letters, and a graduate seminar called The Badness of Victorian Poetry.
