How do expert music librarians/expert archivists best use catalogs'
software for distinguishing a musician's composing from performances...

If it could ever turn up that such materials even exist in any
archives/libraries how would expert archivists/expert music
librarians/expert records managers use existing software for catalogs to
ferret out, if any exist, composition studies, musical sketches for
teaching/instruction by conductor/pianist of notoriety James Levine from
the years as a youth studying music or at other times of the
conductor's/pianist's career?

A difficulty for expert searching is complicated by

      a) all the many search hits that are performances or

      b) many search hits that are similar Levine names.

As sensitive as the matter of curiosity might be for some, if it could ever
be put aside to take a look at any work of merit, if any exists in
collections.

Music compositions or composition studies or music sketches by
conductor/pianist of notoriety James Levine during youth, the years of
music studies at The Juilliard School, etc.

As sensitive as the matter of curiosity might be for some, if it could ever
be put aside to take a look at the work of merit, it's of note how
difficult turning up any music compositions, any musical composition
studies, any musical sketches by conductor of notoriety James Levine...

During youth, the years studying music at The Juilliard School, studying at
other places and independently, conductors/pianists might sketch music
examples for teaching/instruction or compose studies working on composers'
scores.

Analyzing composers' scores might involve composing studies/sketches around
composers' notation errors.

Word that JL's interest in the work of Charles Wuorinen
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP6_ZB9sSO0 might be a lead to the kinds of
JL music compositions not seen yet notated in sketches in JL collections,
JL correspondence or such materials in archives/libraries like at
http://library.juilliard.edu/ if even such JL work exists from youth... the
years studying music.

What are some titles of music compositions by Conductor James Levine?...
composition studies?... , composition sketches?... from youth or from the
years at Juilliard or from other music education programs?

Conductors' papers might turn up composition studies, composing sketches,
orchestrations, notes on a variety of composers' scores, etc. Music
composition takes many forms in addition to Titled musical Works. Others
might write something down from hearing talented musicians' improvisations.
Or musicians might write something down from improvising. Talented
musicians might write something down from improvisations or others might
write it attributed from hearing the improvisations...

Musicians as instructors, musicians as teachers might write a sketch for
students demonstrating a variety of principles...
