Chamber music emerged in the Classical period, with the chamber ensemble being the earlier form of the symphony orchestra. In contrast to the grandiose symphony and dazzling virtuoso solo performances, chamber music is often described as “friends in intimate conversation”, with each performer being independent and equal, in communication and interaction. In this concert, the serenade for smaller instrumental ensemble is structurally exquisite and light, and thus easy to understand; the string quintet accentuates the deep, thick and dense inner part (voice), while the woodwind quintet from late 18th century highlights each instrument’s distinctive technique, timbre and tonality. You are invited to appreciate these three forms of chamber music on this musical night with Macao Orchestra!
