Awarded by the City of Weimar, the Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship honours the name of one of the world's most influential and iconic pianists. Famed for both his legendary performances of Bach and for his ground-breaking engagement with film and recording technology, the Fellowship seeks to emulate and celebrate these same qualities by helping a professional established musician to recreate the music of the Baroque for the 21st Century.
The successful recipient will be expected to explore and develop a unique project concept over the two-year period of the Fellowship, culminating in an artefact inspired by the example of Glenn Gould.
The Glenn Gould Bach Fellow will receive a total stipendiary budget of €50,000 (Fifty Thousand Euro) over the course of their Fellowship - i.e. over the two-year period of the Fellowship. In addition to this, a budget of up to €90,000 (Ninety Thousand Euro) will be provided towards the production and realization of their Fellowship Project, whilst the recipient will be fully supported and mentored by the Fellowship team throughout the two-year period of the Fellowship.
