Tabea
Zimmermann

viola - artist in residence

Tabea Zimmermann is serving as the Concertgebouworkest’s artist in residence in the 2019–20 season.

Zimmermann studied with Ulrich Koch and Sandor Vegh. The German violist performs regularly with such orchestras as the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris and the London Symphony Orchestra. She also gives many chamber music concerts – with her own Arcanto Quartet in particular.

Contemporary music is one of Zimmermann’s primary focuses. In April 1994, she garnered acclaim for the world premiere of Ligeti’s Sonata for Solo Viola, composed especially for her. In recent years, she has performed new concertos by such composers as Heinz Holliger and Wolfgang Rihm, and a double concerto by Bruno Mantovani (with violinist Antoine Tamestit).

Zimmermann is the recipient of numerous awards, having been hailed as Artist of the Year at the 2017 International Classical Music Awards.

On 31 January 1988, Zimmermann made her first appearance with the Concertgebouworkest, performing Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante in E-flat major, K 364, which she performed together with violinist Thomas Zehetmair under the direction of Nikolaus Harnoncourt. She performed the same work with the orchestra in October 1988 and at the Mozart Week in Salzburg on 3 February 1990. In March 2002, she returned to perform the Bartók viola concerto in the version she herself completed, under the baton of Hans Vonk.
