Chamber Music: What is it?
Chamber music is a form of classical music, written for a small group
of instruments which traditionally could be accommodated in a palace
chamber. Most broadly, it includes any "art music" that is
performed by a small number of performers with one performer to a part.
The word "chamber" signifies that the music can be performed
in a small room, often with an intimate atmosphere. However, it usually
does not include, by definition, solo instrument performances.
