Celebrated as one of the foremost violinists of today, Nikolaj Znaider is also fast becoming one of the most versatile artists of his generation, uniting his talents as soloist and conductor. He performs and conducts a delightful and varied program, from a vibrant violin concerto by Mozart to Mendelssohn's warm and sunny "Italian" Symphony. And, to close, Elgar's masterful Enigma Variations, depicting in music the composer's friends and family - their characteristics and foibles, their personalities and passions.

The Cleveland Orchestra

William Eddins, conductor

The ultimate Valentine's Day experience - the romantic screen coupling of Bogart and Bergman with Max Steiner's lush score performed live by The Cleveland Orchestra. In the legendary 1942 film, Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), is reunited with his true love, Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), when he is approached by her husband, the famed rebel Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), who needs Rick's help to escape to America. Having renewed her love for Rick, Ilsa wants to stay behind in Casablanca. "You must do the thinking for both of us," she says to Rick. He does, and his plan brings the story to its satisfyingly logical, if not entirely happy, conclusion.

TICKETS: $30-$75, Box $100

Location: Severance Hall, 11001 Euclid Ave., Cleveland OH 44106
