Tabea Zimmermann
For many years, Tabea Zimmermann has been one of the most renowned musicians of our time. Her charismatic personality and deep musical understanding are valued equally by both her audience and her fellow musicians. Arguably the finest violist in the world today, Tabea Zimmermann owes her success not only to her exceptional talent, but also to the support of her parents, thorough training by excellent teachers, and a tireless enthusiasm to communicate her understanding and love of music to her audience.
As a Soloist she regularly works with the most distinguished orchestras worldwide like the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Orchestre de Paris, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Czech Philharmonic. During the last season she performed among others at the Salzburger Festspiele and with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège, the Munich Chamber Orchestra and the Camerata Bern.
Following residencies in Weimar, Luxemburg, Hamburg and at the Bodenseefestival in recent seasons, Tabea Zimmermann will be artist-in-residence with the Bamberger Symphoniker in 2012/13 and will perform among others Monh by Georges Lentz as well as Hindemith's Konzertmusik op.48.
The Arcanto Quartet, with violinists Antje Weithaas and Daniel Sepec and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, continues to be a special focus for Tabea Zimmermann's chamber music activities.
Tabea Zimmermann has inspired numerous composers to write for the viola and has introduced many new works into the standard concert and chamber music repertoire. In April 1994, she gave a highly successful world premiere of the Sonata for Solo Viola by György Ligeti, a work composed especially for her. The subsequent premieres of this work in London, New York, Paris, Jerusalem, Amsterdam, and Japan attracted great critical and public acclaim. In recent seasons, Tabea Zimmermann premiered Recicanto for Viola and Orchestra by Heinz Holliger, the viola concerto Über die Linie IV by Wolfgang Rihm, Monh by George Lentz, Notte di pasqua by Frank Michael Beyer, and, together with Antoine Tamestit, a double concerto by Bruno Mantovani.
Tabea Zimmermann has received several national and international awards for her outstanding artistic contributions. These include Frankfurter Musikpreis, Hessischer Kulturpreis, the Rheingau Musikpreis, the International Prize Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Sienna, and the Paul-Hindemith-Prize from the city of Hanau. Since autumn 2011 Tabea Zimmermann has been ambassador of the Bundesstiftung Kinderhospiz (German Foundation for Children's Hospices).
Tabea Zimmermann began learning the viola at age three, and two years later began playing the piano. She studied with Ulrich Koch at the Musikhochschule Freiburg and subsequently with Sandor Vegh at the Mozarteum Salzburg. Following her studies, she received several awards at international competitions, amongst them first prizes at the 1982 Geneva International Competition and the 1984 Budapest International Competition. As a result of winning the 1983 Maurice Vieux Competition in Paris, she received a viola by the contemporary maker Etienne Vatelot on which she has been performing ever since. From 1987 to 2000, she regularly gave concerts in Düsseldorf, Jerusalem and Luxemburg with the late David Shallon, father of her two sons Yuval and Jonathan. Tabea Zimmermann held teaching posts at the Musikhochschule Saarbrücken and Hochschule für Musik Frankfurt.
