Classical Trios, Quartets and Quintets: As far as classical music is concerned, the term "quartet" is an ensemble of four players, the most popular in Classical chamber music being the string quartet, which is made up of two violins, a viola and a violoncello. The string quintet is a common type of quintet. It is similar to the string quartet, but with two violas, two violoncellos, or more rarely, the addition of a double bass. Another common grouping in classical music is the wind quintet, usually consisting of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn. A 6+ member classical music group is referred to as an orchestra; a small orchestra with fifteen to thirty members (violins, violas, cellos, double basses, woodwind or brass instruments) is called a chamber orchestra.
