Anyone interested in Chamber Music?

I see a lot of topics on the "bold" subjects of orchestral and Opera recordings along with some (rather few) on instrumental music. I wonder if there is anyone interested in defending, discussing, analyzing and indulging in Chamber Music.

In my view, after have listened to all forms of the so called classical music (Bernstein used to call it "precise music") for more than 30 years, I strongly believe that Chamber Music constitutes the ultimate, most intimate and utterly expressive form of it. Most of the greatest composers have mastered their art in Chamber Music leaving masterpeices, sometimes greater than their orchestral, operatic or choral masterworks (Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Bartok, Franck, Faure, etc).

Besides, as for me, I found the chamber soloists and ensembles more solid, more consistent in their artistry and commitment, serious and more modest than their counterparts in the solo instruments, conductors and singers, who, quite often show some volatility, manierisms, pretentiousnes and so on.

So, the floor is open...

RE: Anyone interested in Chamber Music?

Good sleep, maybe with some disturbing dreams on the "infamous" Lulu.

Most probably, Beethoven's op. 132 or even 133 could give you some better options, let alone op. 135 ("The difficult decision"), but, still Troyen1,you might wish to take your "gun" and shoot (yourself) again...
