What is Chamber Music?
The term ‘Chamber’ comes from the French word chambre, which means 'room’. So Chamber Music literally means music which can be performed in a room, and usually involves between two to ten players performing without a conductor. However, chamber music comes in all sorts of sizes and involves any manner of instruments.
What are the fun parts in playing chamber music?
Each musician is an individual. They have their unique part to play. When they play together, they are having a music discussion with each other. As there is no conductor, each musician has to listen carefully to themselves as well as to the others. It is an extreme example of team-work.
