BSO Violinist Julianne Lee Performs Daniel Bernard Roumain's 'Filter' and Pinchas Zukerman Program on WCRB

BSO violinist Julianne Lee plays a short, energetic piece written by another violinist, Daniel Bernard Roumain-his Filter for solo violin, which employs dynamic bowing techniques to emulate electronic effects. 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.

For this week's BSO encore concert broadcast and stream on WCRB 99.5 and, the eminent violinist Pinchas Zukerman is guest conductor, which also features him as soloist in Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3, one of the composer's earliest masterpieces, written when he was 19. Richard Strauss' surprisingly deft, precocious Serenade for 13 winds dates from 1881, when he was only 17. The Bruckner Adagio, played here by string orchestra, is the second movement of his String Quintet, his most substantial piece of chamber music. Concluding this concert is Haydn's Symphony No. 49, from 1768, which may be derived from music he wrote for the theater (the nickname was not the composer's).
