BTHVN 2020

In July 2013, leading violist Tabea Zimmermann was elected chair of the Beethoven Haus Bonn. Since 2015 she has programmed the annual Beethoven Woche festival, which presented excellent chamber music programmes around one of the composer’s works that was written exactly 200 years previously.

In her planning for the festival she was supported by journalist and musicologist Luis Gago. Malte Hemmerich met the two programme planners as well as the Beethoven Haus director Malte Boecker in Berlin, speaking with them about the 2020 edition of the festival, which marked Tabea Zimmermann’s last edition as Artistic Director, and was the crowning achievement of her time there.
