Orchestral music is played by a full-sized orchestra(strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion), and chamber music is played by a smaller group of musicians(ie., a string quartet). I recommend you listen to both of these types, as there is excellent representative music written for either one of them.

Despite what was said in the previous post, you may also come across a chamber orchestra which was a full orchestra in the Classical period. They don't have fully developed wind sections and the strings carry most of the melody.
