Sinfonia Cymru, the lively Welsh chamber orchestra, is going international with its forthcoming Small Nations Big Sounds festival in Cardiff in October. The festival is part of the EU's Emerging Classical Talent in the EU project and involves a partnership with Kalmare Lans Musikstftelse and Blasarsymfonkerna (from Sweden), Fondazione Paolo Grassi (Italy) and Pille Lill Music Fund (from Estonia). The collaborating groups are organising a total of 15 concerts in Estonia, Italy, Sweden and Wales. In Cardiff, the events run from 3 to 6 October, with performances from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Sinfonia Cymru and other international performers.

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conductor Thomas Sondergard, performs a programme entitled Four Last Songs with Sondergard at St David's Hall, Cardiff on 3 October. Then Sinfonia Cymru and guest director Bartosz Woroch (himself from Poland) are joined by Camerata Nordica, the Swedish Wind Ensemble and soloists from the Fondazione Paolo Grassi and Pille Lill Music Foundation in three concerts at Dora Stoutzker Hall, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (4-6 October). The concerts will include a number of collaborations and world premieres celebrating the music and musicianship of each nation.
