Seattle Symphony ‘Untuxed’ and ‘[untitled]’

Anyone up for a 20th-century classical-music marathon should head to Benaroya Hall on Friday, Jan. 31. At 7 p.m., Seattle Symphony presents “Shostakovich Untuxed,” a pairing of the Russian composer’s Symphony No. 9 and Piano Concerto No. 2, with Olari Elts guest-conducting and Alexander Melnikov as soloist. The two pieces showcase Shostakovich at his tightest, wiliest and most engaging.

At 10 p.m. comes the latest concert in the Symphony’s experimental “[untitled]” series, featuring work by Morton Feldman, Kalevi Aho, R. Murray Schafer and George Crumb. Crumb’s rarely performed, eerie and demonic “Black Angels” for electric string quartet is not to be missed. Tickets are $17-$81 for “Shostakovich Untuxed” and $20 for “[untitled].” Benaroya Hall, 200 University St., Seattle (206-215-4747 or www.seattlesymphony.org ).
