What is Chamber Music?

Chamber music is traditionally viewed as a form of classical music that is composed for a small group of instruments – traditionally a group that could fit in a palace chamber or a large room. Described as “the music of friends,” chamber music engages both performer and audience in an intimate artistic dialogue not only through its casual settings, but also in its descriptive storytelling nature and requirement of special musical and social skills not found in symphonic works. Chamber music eliminates any divide between audience and performer by engaging all into sharing an ever-changing dynamic and flowing artistic process.
