A Player's Guide to Chamber Music (Hardcover)

A Player's Guide to Chamber Music By Paul Jeffery Cover Image


Chamber music includes some of the world's greatest music. It is widely played in homes, without an audience, by players who are mostly amateurs, and much of the repertoire is playable even by those of quite moderate ability. This guide offers advice on what music is available, and helps the player to identify what is suitable. It covers chamber music from the 17th to the later 20th century, and all instrumental combinations, including strings, piano, wind instruments, duet sonatas, and baroque ensembles. All the significant composers and musical aspects of playing are covered along with works suitable for inexperienced players.
