Introduction

“When I play together with someone, I want to feel how their soul opens up. I also open my own soul. Then we can face each other as human beings. That's my way of communicating.” Tabea Zimmermann, one of the most respected viola players in the world, joins the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra as Artist in Residence for our spring season.

Zimmermann's relationship with Bélá Bartók's Viola Concerto began as a teenager. In 1995, she received a facsimile of Bartók's drafts for the concerto and began to see the work with new eyes. “I read the drafts over and over again and compared them note by note to all the existing sheet music editions.” In Zimmermann's first residency concert, she performs her own version of the concerto, in which Bartók's tone language receives its purest expression.
