  1. Solo & Chamber Music
    As some of you are aware I started blogging my recommended string quartet recordings a while back as I didn't want to lose them in the Weekly String Quartet thread. However, blogging on TC has many limitations and there was no way to link all my posts in one place without the page disappearing...

    "A second hearing only serves to confirm the original impression that it is one of the finest, and at the same time of the most beautiful and attractive, of its composer's chamber works. Its principal characteristic is the strong national colouring which pervades it throughout, though only in...

    Lesser-known Berlin-based British composer, obsessed with Beckett and colors, is a truly unique voice in the contemporary music scene. Kairos has released a few of her works ranging from solo to orchestral in two albums. Also an album of mostly solo and duets on Wergo and a chamber spatial piece...

  10. Solo & Chamber Music
    This year I'm on two chamber music groups: one formed by two sopranos and guitar and the second consisting of soprano (me), oboe, clarinet and cello.

    I'm fascinated by this. Dan Joseph, The Guitars of Wrath, "Electric Guitar Phase" from Steve Reich's "Triple Quartet" album... Needle-sharp chamber music--just fantastic. Can anyone point me to more?

    Anyone into so-called "chamber prog" like Univers Zero and Art Zoyd?
  15. Solo & Chamber Music
    I have been on a chamber music kick and as you know, I am very fond of the classical era. I own that I do not know the chamber music from this period half so well as I do symphonies and concerti, however. I don't even know all the Haydn or Mozart quartets beyond the most famous, and only...
  16. Solo & Chamber Music
    Hello guys, how can you define chamber music exactly? For example, can WTC or Goldbergs or English Suites etc. kinds of solo keyboard works or solo violin sonatas & partitas be defined as "Chamber music"? Or Bach's concertos, trio sonatas?

  18. Solo & Chamber Music
    Chamber groups have always been relatively common, because of the relative ease to find musicians to play with you and because it tends to be less complicated to organise than, say, an orchestra or a major choir. Most chamber works, especially in Classicism and early Romanticism, fall into some...
  19. Solo & Chamber Music
    Given your unique and particular musical tastes, of course, what are some of your favorite slow movements in the chamber repertoire? Adagios, lentos, andantes, etc. I am not asking for a dozen names that you can rattle off. I want specific movements, and why? What do you think makes that...

    I am relatively new in TC and I have noticed that, as nearly everywhere else, talk of orchestras tends to concentrate almost entirely on the big symphony orchestras. As someone who has managed three chamber orchestras in London in the past, I thought for my first-ever new thread, I would wave...
