File.7 Fun of chamber music
Kozaburo Mori
(Music Writer)

A tense atmosphere and ecstatic expression floating among the performers.
Occasionally a relaxed and joyful face.
And intimate communication with the audience.
Yes, chamber music, let's go listen!

By the way, what is chamber music in the first place?
It is undeniable that it is more modest than orchestral songs, operas, and piano songs, and I feel that there are few enthusiasts who profess chamber music fans.
Personally, it's one of the most fascinating forms of classical music! I can assure you that ...
The magic of music that gets drunk nearby-the fun of chamber music

In English, "Chamber Music" = music played indoors.
The hometown of classical music and the same meaning in Italy, "Music a da Camera".
In short, it is a small group of music played in the lobby or in the guest room, not in a large space such as a church or theater, and is played by 2 to 7 to 8 people.
(Of course, it is generally held in a music hall now)
Since it is a well-established genre, it is not called "chamber music" even if it is performed in a large hall or outdoors, and "chamber music" is "chamber music". By the way, piano solos are generally not included in "chamber music" even if they are performed indoors.

Originally, many pre-baroque instruments are small.
Classic = Orchestra = Burn !!
It wasn't until the mid-18th century, in the days of Haydn and Mozart.
With the advent of Beethoven, it became common for Mahler in the early 20th century to perform in large orchestras with well over 100 people.
Classic grows !?

Meanwhile, the composer continued to make chamber music. Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, and modern composers.
For amateur musical instrument lovers to play.
In order to emphasize the master craftsmanship of an overwhelmingly skilled performer.
And above all, for the creative challenge unique to the truncated organization and number of sounds, and the expression of the inner world.

2 violins + viola, cello music microcosm, string quartet.
A piano quintet with a piano added to it.
In addition, stringed and wind instruments, trios and duos with various combinations.

I mentioned earlier that it is a sober existence, but in reality, many chamber music concerts are held almost every day. From world-class artists to energetic young people. As a project by like-minded music companions and a presentation for music college students and music class students.
The advantage of a small number of people and a relatively small venue is intimacy.
Some people say, "Listen only to the sound" because it is music, but the amount of visual information is still large. It may be due to my lack of concentration, but I think of the impression of the orchestra I heard in the large hall.There are many things I can't do, but I strangely remember how the violinist bowed and walked in the small hall.
And, of course, the sound is close. There are many compositions for each instrument, so it's nice to know who is making which sound.
Sound and arabesque created by sound. The pleasure of immersing yourself in music naturally while chasing with your ears and eyes.
Ah, the joy of listening to chamber music!

Personally, I like to go to recitals for young players such as violin and cello. In a duo with a piano, he plays sonatas and technical small pieces, and sometimes he tries to play unaccompanied solo songs, and his sincere performance is dazzling.
It's a really rude story to write "challenge", and many young people have a good career and ability, but it's a classic that also requires maturity. Please forgive me.
If the listener wants to do it, I'd rather be excited and thrilled to experience the relaxed and youthful personality rather than listening to a strangely mature performance.

By the way, the concert to be picked up this time.
First of all, from Philia Hall, a sacred place for chamber music that Kanagawa Prefecture is proud of, a performance by the up-and-coming German Veronika Eberle.
After all, the attention is Frank's sonata. I am looking forward to interacting with Mari Kodama, a pianist who has established a reputation as an international pianist.
Please tear the masterpiece.
