Celebrate your date night at our romantic Valentine’s concert inspired by the art and beauty of Italy. We start with the suite from Stravinsky’s Pulcinella, a charming ballet based on characters from Italy’s Comedia dell’arte. Full of romantic intrigue and foibles, it ends happily in the marriage of the lovers. We then play Italian Baroque master Scarlatti’s first Concerto Grosso, and conclude with Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony, an exuberant, sunny tribute to the beauty of the Italian landscape.
