If it’s January, then it must be time for the Cleveland Orchestra’s annual Miami residency. Last season the Cleveland programs were overwhelmingly safe and conservative, heavy on crowd-pleasing warhorses.   This year’s schedule is somewhat more adventurous. At this weekend’s concerts in Miami, music director Franz Welser-Möst conducts Wanderlust by American composer Sean Shepherd and Dmitri Shostakovich’s enigmatic, too-rarely played Symphony No. 6. Piano virtuoso Yefim Bronfman is soloist in Brahms’ Concerto No. 2, one of the monuments of the orchestral literature.

The Cleveland Orchestra plays the program 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Arsht Center in Miami. 305-949-6722;
