Course contents

Learning objectives:

In Chamber Music 7, students create chamber ensembles of various compositions or continue to play in ensembles created in the previous course of study with a preference for piano trio, string quartet, wind quintet or brass ensemble, but other combinations of instruments are also possible. The goal of the course is to produce chamber music of high artistic quality and expressive maturity. The focus is on developing a common musical, articulatory and rhythmic sense, intonation, harmony, intercommunication, a balanced ensemble sound, and creating a common musical concept of the piece.

Thematic areas:

Through the staging of selected repertoire the following skills are strengthened:

  1. Uniform artistic expression in the interpretation of the work
  2. Types of communication when playing in a chamber ensemble
  3. Structuring chamber ensemble rehearsals
  4. Principles of public presentation of artistic performance as a chamber musician
  5. Effective chamber ensemble rehearsal management strategies

Recommended or required reading

The students continue to get acquainted with other chamber works by Viennese classical composers (J. Haydn, W. A. Mozart, L. van Beethoven), Czech composers (B. Smetana, A. Dvořák, L. Janáček, B. Martinů), world-famous composers (J. Brahms, M. Ravel, D. Shostakovich, P. Hindemith, etc.), prominent representatives of the musical baroque (J. S. Bach, G. F. Händel, G. P. Telemann) and contemporary works, always depending on the individual composition of the ensemble and the availability of arrangements of compositions by these authors, e.g. for brass ensembles.

Individual creative initiative of the student is assumed in the choice of repertoire. Due to the variety of chamber ensembles assembled, the possibilities of choosing pieces to perform are considerable. Therefore, the following list is only an example of the literature possibilities for the main types of chamber ensembles:

Piano Trio:

SMETANA, Bedřich. Trio in G minor, Op.15

Bärenreiter, ISMN 9790260102910

String Quartet:

DVOŘÁK, Antonín. String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96

Bärenreiter, ISMN 9790260103023

Schott 1973

For brass ensemble:

ARNOLD, Malcolm. Brass Quintet No. 2 op.132

Faber Music, Cat. No: 0571564038
