what is a chamber orchestra?

“Some people think that when they go to a chamber orchestra concert, only four or five musicians will be performing. Don’t be fooled by the word “chamber”. When the royal palaces rang with the music of Mozart and Haydn, and churches were filled with the strains of Bach and Vivaldi, the chamber orchestra was king. Not four or five musicians but fifteen to as many as forty playing music written especially for them and performed in the most intimate of settings. A full robust of sound created by just the right combination of instruments."
