Barely 4 years old and already a vital force among chamber-music ensembles, the Rossetti String Quartet seems to grow in stature at each hearing. Its latest local appearance, opening the new season of the Da Camera Society's Chamber Music in Historic Sites, came Friday night, and on only a few days' notice.
