Ode to Joy: Beethoven at 250 and the Welsh connection

The Welsh Chamber Orchestra was founded to fill the gap in the music making life of Wales between performances of solo and small chamber music ensembles and those of the symphony orchestra. Since its inception in 1986 it has performed with many of the world's greatest soloists, undertaken several European concert tours as well as performing throughout the UK. For many years it was resident chamber orchestra at the Swansea International Concert Series where its innovative policy of giving second performances of works by Welsh composers was highly successful.  It has recorded numerous television programmes including a New York Film Festival, prize-winning Opera series.
