New to chamber music?

Chamber music is classical music originally intended to be performed in small places (small halls, even home living rooms), by small groups of musicians (usually one to four, though sometimes up to eight).

Chamber music ensembles traditionally include duos, string trios, string quartets, piano trios, piano quartets and wind ensembles, as well as solo piano.
