      One Response to “Ilya Levinson”

        I now am a fan of composer, Ilya Levinson. What wonderful music he has created, and I love the variety of the different influences he uses. Thanks to Ian Maksin for telling me via face book of this event. It would be difficult to pick favorites. I could absolutely hear, “In Blue” in a Woody Allen movie, and being an Argentine Tango lover, the “Memory Tango” was a hit with me. Solistice Canyon I was perfect in my memory of Point McGoo in Malibu where my family camped every Fall. Thanks Seth Keley.
