A podcast all about chamber music!
The Counterpoint Club is a place for anyone with an interest in chamber music to learn about this art form. Whether you are a student of music, a passionate chamber music player or an appreciative listener, through this podcast you’ll discover the fascinating role of chamber music within the larger history of Western classical music, explore rehearsal ideas and performance techniques, and be entertained by fascinating conversations with special guests – all with a dash of frivolity!
Join the Skyros Quartet for this behind-the-scenes look at the thought and process – all the tiny threads that come together – to create the chamber music you so enjoy!
