Beethoven Orchestra

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.


To go in search of the young fire spirit in Beethoven's birthplace and bring it to the people - that is the mission of the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn! With its more than 50 concerts and 110 opera performances annually, it is the driving force in Bonn's musical life.


Together with its General Music Director Dirk Kaftan, the renowned orchestra aims to discover musical worlds at the highest artistic level - regardless of whether the music is three hundred years old, from Beethoven or from the present day, whether it originates from cultures to which one would have to travel halfway around the globe, or whether one is still wandering through unexplored terrain to reach it.


The goal is to anchor the orchestra in the minds and hearts of all Bonners and far beyond the city & region.
