Shostakovich Untuxed With Pianist Alexander Melnikov
Russian pianist Alexander Melnikov has won awards for his recordings of works by his countryman Dmitri Shostakovich, and you can hear why in this Untuxed Seattle Symphony performance, under the baton of Olari Elts. Designed to be more casual and relaxed than the orchestra's other concerts, the program spotlights two of Shostakovich's most cheerful pieces: Piano Concerto No. 2, written for his son Maxim in 1957, and the playful post-war Symphony No. 9, which the composer called a "joyful little piece." Stick around for a post-show Q&A with the musicians.
