We are delighted to explore chamber music in this issue. Here we are less looking at the nuances of composers and more the role that chamber music has played and can continue to play in our lives — as music performed in public spaces, as music presented in concert, and finally as music that we bring to life in our own homes. Join The Muse Dialogue for the second issue of our inaugural year: Chamber Music.
