As first elected fellow Tanja Tetzlaff receives the Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship by the City of Weimar. Every two years, the city will now award this fellowship, which offers musicians the chance to realize ambitious and innovative musical media projects on the music of Bach or on music from the Baroque period. The Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship is made possible by the Philip Loubser Foundation and managed by the Thuringia Bach Festival.
Cellist Tanja Tetzlaff convinced the selection panel both with her artistic work as well as with her project proposal. Starting this April, over the next two years, she will now have the opportunity to realise a film project that relates Bach's famous cello suites to nature and climate change. In addition to her concert activities, Tetzlaff has long been involved with environmental issues – and can now combine the two with this wholly unique project. "I am very honoured to have been selected as the Glenn Gould Bach Fellow
2021," Tanja said in a first reaction. "The fellowship will allow me to realise a real dream project that combines two aspects that have kept me very busy
over the past years."
Tanja Tetzlaff was selected last December from a large number of applications. The Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship is endowed with 100,000 Euros annually for the fellows as well as for their project budget.
