The “Orquesta Académica de Madrid” has developed a section on Chamber Music through its Ensemble. This has been a project established from the origins of the orchestra due to several reasons. First of all, chamber music permits to obtain greater flexibility and better orchestral sound. Secondly, it benefits professionals devoted to this musical form as they work in smaller groups. And last, but not least, chamber music is raising great interest on the part of audiences.

The Ensemble of the “Orquesta Académica de Madrid”, formed by the most outstanding instrumentalists of the orchestra, has recently been presented in a tour around some Spanish cities, offering chamber programmes of enormous interest for all kinds of public. Moreover, the reduced costs have allowed the orchestra to attempt a variety of low-budget productions, extending the possibilities of collaboration in charitable kinds of concerts, festivals or tours.

The reduced size of the Ensemble also has a clear advantage concerning space of performance. The chamber programmes are thought –and often composed- to be executed in cloisters, small rooms or even outdoors, not needed generally the conditions of a concert hall.

Some of the works in the repertoire of the Ensemble of the “Orquesta Académica de Madrid” are the following:
