Bernstein’s violin concerto is inspired by five of the seven descriptions of love in Plato’s Symposium. In 1939, Bartok wrote his Divertimento for string orchestra as a diversion from the world around him with the outbreak of WWII. Each in its own way a love story set to music, HeartStrings is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
