Discussion

Chamber music, just like any other form of teamwork, is situated somewhere in that creative realm between the development and autonomy of individual personalities along with their ideas and the collective thought and action necessary to achieve the goal that has been set. The “complex system” of a chamber music group—with its various levels of interaction and communication among the members, between them and the work being performed, and between them and the audience—opens up an entire cosmos of possibilities.
Susanne Schäffer, Patrick Juedt, and Johannes Meissl talk about experiences, aspects, and perspectives—from the joy of collective flow to creative conflicts and on to strategies for overcoming difficulties.
