This Valentine's Day the Quad City Symphony Orchestra presents an ode to love beginning with music inspired by the tragic romance of Pelleas and Melisande. The tone then brightens as Roberto Diaz, violist of international reputation, returns to the Quad Cities' stage, this time with his wife, the celebrated violinist Elissa Lee Koljonen. Sparks will fly as this couple performs Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola. Then, when you come back from intermission, the QCSO will immerse you in all the romantic color and atmosphere of Italy through Mendelssohn's "Italian" Symphony, a work he called the "jolliest piece I have ever done."
