Performers on string instruments, of which a chamber orchestra consists, form, compared to the symphonic, wind, and folk orchestras, a small group of musicians. Such orchestra has not only exceptional mobility presents concerts, but also, most importantly, has a unique opportunity to implement the music of the Baroque and Early Classicism. During this period a chamber orchestra was the main type of orchestral group for which many musical masterpieces were created by A.Vivaldi, G.Ph. Telemann, J.S. Bach, G.F. Handel, A. Scarlatti, J. Haydn, W.A. Mozart and other composers.
