To commemorate Beethoven
One of the main objectives of the orchestra's musicians is to carry the reputation of the City of Bonn in the spirit of Beethoven to the rest of the world during concerts. The presentation of programmes that have not been heard recently is an important aspect of its artistic work.
Beyond Bonn´s borders
What Richard Strauss started as one of the first guest conductors of the orchestra, was later continued by Max Reger, Sergiu Celibidache, Dennis Russell Davies and Kurt Masur: They led the orchestra to become a leader in its field in Germany. Since the 2008/2009 season Stefan Blunier has been its general music director.
The orchestra experienced its first tour of China over the 2012 New Year. It was an enormous success. The Beethoven Orchestra Bonn was able to once again confirm its reputation as an outstanding orchestra well beyond Bonn.
