File.7 Chamber music fun
Kosaburo Mori
(music writer)

Tense air and ecstatic expression drifting among the musicians.
A relaxed and happy face occasionally.
And intimate communication with the audience.
Yes, let's go to the chamber music, listen!

By the way, what is chamber music in the first place?
It can't be denied that it's more sober than orchestral tunes, operas, and piano tunes.
Personally, it's one of the most attractive forms of classical music! I can affirm it ...

In English, "Chamber Music" = music played indoors.
“Musica da Camera” is the home of classical music and has the same meaning in Italy.
In short, it is not a large space such as a church or theatre, but a small group of music played in the lobby or between guests. It is performed by two to seven or eight people.
(Of course, currently held in music halls is common)
Since it has been established as a genre, even if performed in a large hall or outdoors, it is not called “open air”, but “chamber” is “chamber”. By the way, piano solos are generally not included in "chamber music" even if they are performed indoors.

Originally, many pre-Baroque instruments were small
Classic = Orchestra = Burn !!
It became like this in the middle of the 18th century, in the era of Haydn and Mozart.
Beethoven appeared, and in the early 20th century Mahler, it became common to play in large orchestras with well over 100 people.
Classics grow !?

Meanwhile, composers continued to make chamber music. Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, and modern composers.
For amateur instrument lovers to play.
With the overwhelming skill, that is, in order to emphasize the masterpiece of a very skilled player.
Above all, for the creative challenge unique to the truncated organization and number of sounds, for the expression of the inner world.

Cosmos of music by two violins + viola and cello, string quartet.
A piano quintet with a piano.
In addition, strings and wind instruments, trios and duos with various combinations.

I wrote earlier that it was plain, but in fact there are many chamber music concerts on a daily basis. From world-class artists to healthy young people. As a plan by a good music companion and a presentation of students of music college students and music classrooms.
The advantage of a small and relatively small venue is, first of all, intimacy.
Some people say, "Listen only to the sound" because of music, but the amount of visual information is still large. Perhaps because of my lack of concentration, remember the impression of the orchestra that I heard in the large hall There are many things that aren't there, but the violinists who saw them in the small halls remember how to bow and walk.
And the sound is close, as usual. Since there are many arrangements for each instrument, it is easy to understand who is making which sound.
Arabesque created by sound and sound. The pleasure of immersing yourself in music with your ears, eyes, and chase.
Oh, the joy of listening to chamber music!

Personally, I like going to recitals for young players such as violins and cellos. In a duo with a piano, she plays sonatas and finely crafted pieces, sometimes tries to play solo accompaniment with enthusiasm.
Writing a “challenge” is a really rude story, and although many young people have a good background and ability, this is a classic that requires maturity. Please forgive me.
If you want to listen to it, you want to feel more relaxed and youthful than to listen to an unusually mature performance.

By the way, concert to pick up this time.
First, from the Philly Hall, a sacred place for chamber music that Kanagawa Prefecture is proud of, a performance of the newest German Veronica Eberle.
The most notable is Frank Sonata. I am looking forward to talk with Mari Kodama, a pianist who has established a reputation as an international pianist.
Please tear down the famous song.
