Chamber group Music Recordings

'Chamber music' is a term used to describe western art music written for a small number of performers (with the exception of solo instrument music). The name derives from the idea that chamber music should be capable of being performed in a small room or chamber. Initially, music for such ensembles was intended to be performer in an intimate fashion, between friends and family, and usually just for pleasure. Eventually, though this practice continued, chamber music moved on to the concert hall.
