File.7 chamber music fun
Saburo Mori
(music writer)

The expression of the tense air and habit that drifts among the performers.
A relaxed and enjoyable face that occasionally peeks out.
And intimate communication with the audience.
Yes, let's go to chamber music!

By the way, what is chamber music in the first place?
I can't deny that it's a quiet presence compared to orchestral songs, opera, and piano songs.
Personally, it is one of the most attractive forms of classical music! I can say that ...

In English "Chamber Music" = music played indoors.
“Musica da Camera” is the same meaning in Italy as the home of classical music.
In short, it is not a large space such as a church or a theater, but a small group of music played in the lobby or between the guests.
(Of course, it is usually held in the music hall now)
Because it is well established as a genre, it is not called “outdoor music” even if it is performed in a large hall or outdoors, but “chamber music” is “chamber music”. By the way, piano solos are usually not included in “chamber music” even if they are played indoors.

Originally many pre-Baroque instruments were small
Classic = Orchestra = Burn !
It became like in the middle of the 18th century, after Haydn and Mozart.
Beethoven appeared, and until the early 20th century Mahler, it was normal to perform in a large orchestra that surpassed 100 people.
Classic grows up !?

Meanwhile, the composer continued to make chamber music. Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, and modern composers.
For amateur instrument lovers to play.
In order to highlight the masterpiece of a master performer with overwhelming skill.
Above all, for the creative challenge unique to the cut organization and number of sounds, and the expression of the inner world.

Violin 2 挺 + Viola, microcosm of music by cello, string quartet.
A piano quintet with a piano.
In addition, strings and wind instruments, trio and duo with various combinations.

I mentioned earlier that there was a simple presence, but in fact, many concerts of chamber music are held every day. From global artists to cheerful young people. As a project by music friends who are in good spirits and as a presentation for students of music college students and music classes.
The advantage of a small venue and a relatively small venue is intimacy.
Some people say “Listen only to sounds” because they are music, but the amount of visual information is still large. It may be due to my lack of concentration, but remember the impression of the orchestra I heard in the large hall Often there is nothing but I remember strangely how the violinist bowed and walked in the small hall.
And it is natural that the sound is close. There is a lot of organization for each instrument, so it's nice to know who makes the sound.
Arabesque created by sound and sound. The pleasure of being immersed in music naturally while chasing with your ears and eyes.
Ah, the pleasure of listening to chamber music!

Personally, I like to go to recitals of young players such as violins and cellos. The duo with the piano plays sonatas and crafted small pieces, sometimes dares to challenge unaccompanied solo songs, and the dignified performance is dazzling.
Writing “challenge” is really rude, and even young people often have a good career and ability, but it is a classic that requires maturity. Let me forgive you.
If the listener wants it, it would be more exciting and thrilling than touching an adult-like performance.

Now, this concert will be picked up.
First of all, from the Philia Hall, the sacred place of chamber music that Kanagawa Prefecture is proud of, the performance of German cutting-edge Veronica Eberle.
Attention is Frank Sonata after all. I look forward to interacting with Mari Kodama, a pianist who has established a reputation as an international pianist.
Tears to the masterpiece.
