BSO violinist Julianne Lee plays a short, energetic piece written by another violinist, Daniel Bernard Roumain, his Filter for solo violin. Lee performs with BSO violist Rebecca Gitter in Mozart’s Duo in G, one of two duos the composer wrote as a favor for his friend Michael Haydn—Joseph’s brother—who fell ill before fulfilling a commission. The G major duo is a substantial work of grace and elegance. Franz Schubert’s late string quartets rank among his greatest works. His songful Rosamunde Quartet, the only one of these to be published in his lifetime, takes its name from a melody it shares with music he wrote for the stage play by that name.
