N.C. Symphony: Orchestral Love Stories 

When: Fri., Feb. 5, 12 p.m. 2016
Price: $28
The second half of the 19th century was prime time for steamy, overwrought orchestral music. Something about the heaving, open-ended harmonic language of the times lent itself to grand gestures. For this lunchtime concert, the N.C. Symphony surveys some of the best-known orchestral romances of that era: the “Liebestod” from Tristan and Isolde, the overture to Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, and selections from Carmen. —Dan Ruccia
