Dear Filmmaker, Choreographer, Theater Director, Juggler and other interested party,

Do not be fòóled by my long discography, many videos, projects and other credits or my portly shadow — I am not “too big” or “too busy” or “too expensive”. In fact I’ve deliberately turned down some record and publishing deals, and have often worked for a lesser fee with one goal in mind – to own my own work. The primary aim of sole ownership has always been simple: to make the work more facile to license in the future, and to be flexible with licensing for low-budget projects.

You’re an artist and I’m an artist. You like to eat and I, too, have an appetite. You have a vision — and if my work is a part of it, I want to hear from you.

I feel lucky to own 99% of my tracks completely and, with a few exceptions, you can deal directly with me. In most cases, the agreements are very simple.

So don’t be shy. Remember this — licensing is the sincerest form of flattery.

with gratitude,

  • Hello! My boss was at NAMM and saw your arrangement of Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2. We would like to purchase copies of the sheet music for that, if that is possible. Would you please let me know?

    Lev, this is Dr. Andre’ Godsey from Vermont College of Fine Arts. I wanted to thank you and Trio Lunaire for your remarkable viola playing on my piece. My last semester is coming up and Roger Zahab and I will be looking around from Julia A. Perry’s Viola Sonata. If I locate it, we will hold a press conference and I will make sure you get a front-row seat. Thanks again. Love you.
