HISTORY & BACKGROUND
The Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship was launched by the City of Weimar in May 2020. Celebrating the iconic, ground-breaking artefacts created by Glenn Gould around the music of J.S. Bach, the Fellowship aims to help a professionally established musician to recreate the music of the Baroque for the 21st Century.
Each Glenn Gould Bach Fellow creates over the course of their Fellowship an artistic artefact (or series of artefacts) that captures their unique musical vision. The Fellowship thereby enables them to realize an artistic vision of stature and in the process make a statement about the music of the Baroque that endures.
