In 2020 the City of Weimar, the Thuringia Bach Festival and the Philip Loubser Foundation opened a new chapter in the rich cultural history of Weimar: In future the Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship will be awarded every other year. It will offer selected aspiring musicians the opportunity to bring to life musical media projects related to Bach’s music.
The first recipient is the Irish pianist, Peter Tuite, who has created two very different film versions of Bach's Goldberg Variations: „Take One“ was filmed at the historic Long Room Library of Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), „Take Two“ at the new Kontor centre for the arts in Erfurt (Germany). Two both musically and visually different interpretations of the same piece of music, that allow new views on a „Music of Change“.
