About the magic and glamor of small string groups

These chamber music string ensembles present themselves as ensembles rich in nuances. Tender or expressive, calm or dynamic, light as a feather or energetic - the liveliness of the ensembles unfolds by itself when playing thanks to the performance algorithms contained in the Vienna Instruments Player. The Chamber Strings I spread their flair in intimate arrangements, chamber music compositions or with divided string groups. Large string ensembles acquire additional nuances and variety through the combination with the Chamber Strings I.
