CLASSICAL
by Bruce Reid

THURSDAY 11/4

SEATTLE SYMPHONY -- Alexander Glazunov might hold a unique position in 20th-century music, leaving Soviet Russia because his music was considered too conservative to be successful; Elmar Oliveira is the soloist for this very Romantic, very, very Russian Violin Concerto. Plus two symphonies; the underplayed Honegger No. 2 (from one of the century's finest symphonists, not that you could tell from how often he's programmed), and the overplayed Brahms No. 3. Benaroya Hall, Taper Auditorium, 7:30 pm, also Sat Nov 6, 8 pm and Sun Nov 7, 2 pm, 215-4747 or www.seattlesymphony.org, $10-$67.


FRIDAY 11/5

MUSIC ANTIQUA KÖLN -- One of the most lively and justly celebrated early music groups in an unfortunately typical Big Guns of the Baroque concert: Bach's Concerti in D, BWV 1043, and in D, BWV 1064; two pieces from Vivaldi's L'estro Armonico; and three concerti from Telemann. Benaroya Hall, Taper Auditorium, 8 pm, 325-7066, $25/$35.


SATURDAY 11/6

EDUARDO FERNÁNDEZ -- Between Baroque transcriptions, Romantic Spanish pieces, and knotty contemporary works, the guitar has one of the supremely schizophrenic repertoires of any instrument; no word on this evening's program, but Fernández's proficiency in all genres is testified to by many. Benaroya Hall, Nordstrom Recital Hall, 7:30 pm, 297-8788, $18 students & seniors/$23 general.


SUNDAY 11/7

NORTHWEST CHAMBER ORCHESTRA -- Two by Dvorák: the Sonatina in G for Violin and Piano, and the Trio for Violin, Cello, and Piano in E, "Dumky." Seattle Asian Art Museum, Volunteer Park, 2:30 pm, 343-0445, $12.50.
