Chamber orchestras require musicians to set aside individual achievement for group success. Pinchas Zukerman is a well-known violinist, who has been performing since he was a child. Every year, he goes to St. Paul, Minnesota to direct the chamber orchestra.
Zukerman says musicians must have discipline to create or recreate musical beauty. The chamber orchestra has a common understanding that allows them to play well together. The conductor should not have full authority over the orchestra.
A musician talks about focusing on small improvements in his performance. The feeling of achievement makes him never tire despite the endless hours of practice.
Zukerman states that music is "inexplicable." Members of the chamber orchestra say music exists because sometimes words cannot be used to describe feelings and emotions.
The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra has 31 members; they can perform in smaller locations than most orchestras. They bring music to people who cannot make it to regular concert halls.
