What is chamber music?


In its beginnings, music was merely chamber music, meant to be listened to in a small space by a small audience.
— Gustav Mahler

Originally a genre to be enjoyed in the home (as opposed to the theater or church), chamber music is quite possibly the most intimate form of the performing arts. Because of the limited size of the "home" –drawing room, reception hall or palace chamber–chamber music usually permits no more than one person per part and no conductor. As a result, each musician becomes an equally important component and each is intensely involved in the interpretation and performance. This makes for some of the most riveting opportunities to hear music. Many of the great composers throughout history considered their chamber music compositions to be their most private and intimate musical expressions.
