Chamber Music with Soloists of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe

Soloists of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe


Chamber music calls for the full engagement of strong personalities, but at the same time demands musical harmony, respectful cooperation in direct, exciting dialogue, rejection of artifice, stripping down to the essentials, the intuitive exchange with each other and with the audience as equal, thinking listeners, far removed from all orchestral padding - and, last but not least, great music. For in many of the central works of chamber music in particular, intimacy and pithiness, touching expression and grand gesture are found in wonderful balance: 'in the smallest point the highest power', as Schiller once wrote. For the members of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, in residence at Esterházy Palace ever since, all this comes naturally - and, in works by Joseph Haydn and his pupil Ludwig van Beethoven, emerges with verve and subtlety, wit and power.
