The bows and strings of the Worcester Chamber Music Society enamor ears with performances of chamber-music classics and lesser-known gems. Instead of suffering through Amerigo Vespucci's crude raps about the New World, music enthusiasts can explore Argentina and Brazil at elegant South of the Border concerts featuring violinist Gabriela Diaz and cellist Jan Müller-Szeraws. Following a free discussion about the program at 7 p.m., Astor Piazzolla’s Four for Tango commences the show with romantic tango melodies and scratch tones that make violins sound like percussion instruments or raccoon DJs. Duo for Violin and Viola and Assobio A Jato, Heitor Villa-Lobos’s ode to a jet whistle, conjures spirited ditties. How Slow the Wind and Lua Descolorida—works by Osvaldo Golijov, a Grammy-winning Argentine composer who teaches in Worcester—resemble an elegant film soundtrack, and Ginastera’s String Quartet no. 1 milks warm, rich tones from Krista Buckland Reisner’s violin and violist Peter Sulski’s pet dairy cow.
