There's certainly no way of knowing when James Levine will step down from the Boston Symphony Orchestra. But if it's before 2114 - when Levine turns 71 - cross Gustavo Dudamel, the super-charismatic Venezuelan conductor who made his BSO debut last summer, off the list of potential replacements.

Dudamel will take over the Los Angeles Philharmonic when Esa-Pekka Salonen steps down at the end of the 2008-09 season, a move the Los Angeles Times calls "daring," and he'll be signed for five years.
