Beethovenhalle: Bonn’s Concert Hall Honors Its Musical Son

“Beethon”, is the title of this astonishing
sculpture. Made in concrete by Klaus Kammerichs,
unveiled in 1986.

Left: the sculpture head on. Right: the behind
view of Beethon.

The light changes the impression given by the
sculpture, and direct sun puts an artistic look
on the composer’s face.

A closer look allows us to
understand the concept of this sculpture. Each
part in relief corressponds to a hollow part
on the opposite side.
To appreciate this fully it has to be seen
from a certain distance. It’s then that the
creativity and suprising talent takes shape.
