Bonn Beethovenfest with Richard Wigmore

Thursday 21 - Monday 25 September 2017

Every year between the end of August and the beginning of October, Beethoven’s native city of Bonn celebrates the Beethovenfest. International orchestras and soloists, major ensembles and promising young performers return regularly to Bonn to take part in this festival. The tradition of Beethoven festivals in Bonn reaches back to 1845, when a three-day music event was held on the 75th anniversary of the composer’s birth.

We will stay in the 5* Ameron Hotel Königshof and attend 3 concerts in the Beethovenhalle by the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Novus String Quartet.

Richard Wigmore will give talks about the works and life of Beethoven.

There will be a guided tour of Bonn and a boat trip along the Rhine to Königswinter Castle.
