The next performance of the Boulder Chamber Orchestra will transport listeners to 18th-century Venice and 20th-century Buenos Aires, and several points in between.

The program, “The Seasons,” will feature two of Vivaldi’s Baroque-era Four Seasons and equivalent works from Astor Piazzolla’s tango-inflected Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, as well as music depicting a late-night stroll in Madrid and the hustle and bustle of a Metro stop in Mexico City.

Also on the concert, to be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Boulder and Saturday in Broomfield, will be Introduction, Aria and Presto by the late Baroque Italian composer Benedetto Marcello. The violin soloist for Vivaldi and Piazzolla will be Zachary Carrettin, director of the Boulder Bach Festival.

“We wanted to have some variety,” says Bahman Saless, director of the BCO. “This one will be fun!”
