In contrast to orchestral music, chamber music is performed by a small number of performers, with one performer to a part. Each part is relatively independent and personalized. Playing chamber music requires special skills, both musical and social. Without the conductor on site, musicians have to be highly cooperated and interdependent. The composition of chamber music is usually more elaborate, the combination of instruments is more meticulous, while the expressions of emotion are delicate.
The String Quartet is one of the most prominent chamber ensembles in classical music, with most major composers writing string quartets.

The writer of string quartets must perforce concentrate on the bare bones of musical logic. Thus, in many ways the string quartet is pre-eminently the dialectical form of instrumental music, the one most naturally suited to the activity of logical disputation and philosophical enquiry. In the 21st century String Quartet remains an important and refined musical form. He is often associated with impressionism, although he rejected the term. His music is very structured, texture clear, exquisite, and also humorous.
Every details in his work are carefully crafted and deliberately polished. Ravel was known as a master of orchestration. He minutely studied the ability of each orchestral instrument to determine its potential, putting its individual colour and timbre to maximum use. From late 19th century to early 20th century, two European musicians are especially remarkable, Gustav Mahler and Richard Georg Strauss.
It chronicles the misadventures and pranks of the German peasant folk hero Till Eulenspiegel. VierLetzte Lieder for soprano and orchestra are the final completed works of Richard Strauss, composed in when the composer was The work has been published for many versions, but was seldom performed on domestic stage. The concert provides a rare opportunity for the audiences to enjoy the live performance. Symphony No. The reason is that not only the form of composition is purely classical, but also the timbre disposal technique of instruments is fascinating.

As was mentioned in the Stokowski - Philadelphia Recordings page, Stokowski's friend Ossip Gabrilowitsch, who was conductor of the Detroit Symphony from to , and conducted the Philadelphia Orchestra November 30, to January 26, , including the Beethoven Ninth. Bernardino Molinari, a champion of the music of Respighi and the conductor of the Augusteo Orchestra of Rome from to and whom Toscanini heavily criticized conducted the Philadelphians 1, 2 and 4 February However, as to recording, Stokowski and the orchestra started the recording year with two Russian works during the week of January The first Russian work they recorded was a fine performance of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Russian Easter Overture , opus 36, which they recorded 26 January This was the first of four commercial recordings of this Rimsky-Korsakov work which Stokowski made, and at least two more concert performances have been captured.
The performance is taut and vital, with a beautiful series of violin solos by Mischa Mischakoff, one of his last recorded solos with the Philadelphia Orchestra. The horn themes played by Anton Horner are bracing and demonstrate the virtuosity which the Philadelphia Orchestra had attained.
This recording is as vital today as any modern competitive recording, and demonstrates again Stokowski's affinity for the music of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov The sound is beautiful and belies its age after more than eighty-five years have passed. This was recorded on Monday and Wednesday, 28 January for the first side and 30 January for sides 2 to 4 between the normally scheduled concerts of that weekend. The Capriccio italien begins with a noble trumpet solo by Saul Caston in his tenth year with the orchestra and his fifth year as Principal trumpet and he was still only aged For the recording era, this was a sonic spectacular.

This performance is also noble and inspired, showing none of the excesses or overblown effects of many later recordings which turned this fine music into something of a "pot-boiler" in the wrong hands. This recording was made with a large orchestra of musicians: 18 first violins, 17 second violins, 13 violas, 12 celli, 10 double basses, 4 flutes, 4 oboes, 4 bassoons, 4 clarinets, 6 horns, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, 1 tuba, 2 harps, 1 timpani and 3 percussion.
The recording was issued on two 12 inch Victor Red Seal discs, , I have included some reverberation in the transfer of the sides, which I believe opens up the sound, but also adds a slight echo to the surface imperfections - restoration seems always to be a question of conflicting judgments. Anne Mischakoff Heiles in her fascinating and finely written and researched biography 5 of her father describes the resignation of Mischa Mischakoff from the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Mischakoff and Dubinsky Quit the Philadelphia Orchestra. Mischa Mischakoff was Concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra for only two seasons. In the season, Stokowski only conducted the Orchestra during the first series of 8 concerts in October-November, , and in the last 5 series of concerts in March-April 6. During a rehearsal shortly before Easter in [note: Easter fell on March 31 in ], Stokowski complained about the quality of the string tone in an important and difficult passage from Mozart's Symphony no 40 in G Minor.
He first asked all the strings to repeat it. Then he called on each player in the first violin section to play the measures one by one in front of the orchestra. At this point, Mischakoff stood up and resigned Heiles further observes: " Some orchestra members believed that Stokowski's behavior at the rehearsal was intended to humiliate Mischakoff. Mischakoff announced he was leaving the orchestra, and he was joined by David Dubinsky, leader of the second violins After the departures of the star Concertmasters Thaddeus Rich in and Mischa Mischakoff and , Stokowski seems to have had enough of Concertmasters, and from until , Stokowski preferred to rotate, alphabetically by name, the first violins into the lead chair.
Mischakoff in the interesting interview with Mischa Mischakoff does not mention this incident, but speaks well of Stokowski. Mischakoff showed no ill will towards Stokowski, who although impersonal, and indirectly critical of his musicians, was certainly less personally abusive than many other maestros of that era. Mischa Mischakoff in the late s - Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no 2 in c minor opus Recall that in January and December, Rachmaninoff and Stokowski had recorded this concerto acoustically in Camden. First of course was the acoustic recording process, although the recording was of remarkably good sound, given the limitations of the acoustic recording process.
The second drawback was that the first movement was never released during that era.
The major part of the first movement was recorded on a twelve inch 30 cm disc which Rachmaninoff had approved. However, Rachmaninoff did not approve of any of the takes of the ten inch 25 cm discs, which contained the conclusion of the first movement. This conclusion had been recorded in December, , just months before Victor's adoption of the new Westrex electrical recording process.
So the recording, as released, lacked a first movement. Consequently, this recording gains added importance. What can be said about this famous recording which has not already been said? Since its initial release on 27 September , it has never been out of the catalogues. This legendary recording was further included the LP version of " Rachmaninoff: His Complete Recordings " restored by Ward Marston , and again in the CD version of that same complete edition. NAXOS 8.
This recording is also, of course, one of the milestones of recorded history.
