The Beethoven-Haus Bonn association, founded in 1889, is the leading Beethoven centre. It strives to preserve Beethoven's work and heritage. The Beethoven-Haus houses the world's most significant Beethoven collection, a museum at Beethoven's birthplace, a musicology research department with its own library and publishing house as well as a chamber music hall named after Hermann J. Abs where numerous events take place throughout the year. Thanks to the engagement and support from a good 900 friends, patrons and members of over 20 nationalities as well as from the German government, the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the city of Bonn, the association carries out various cultural tasks of national and international importance. Professor Tabea Zimmermann, the internationally acclaimed viola player, chamber musician and instructor, serves as president.
