In the run-up to the Thuringian Bach Weeks, we are reporting regrettable, though perhaps not entirely surprising, news. Due to ongoing restrictions on travel between the USA and Europe, cellist Steuart Pincombe will unfortunately not be able to come to our festival in September. We regret this as much as the artist himself.
While we are working with Steuart Pincombe to find an alternate date as soon as the pandemic makes international travel possible again, we are even more pleased to announce that we have been able to find a prominent replacement for the matinee on Saturday, September 18, in Weimar:
Cellist Tanja Tetzlaff, renowned soloist and Glenn Gould Bach Fellow 2021-23, has agreed to take over the concert and play a solo program for you.
Tanja Tetzlaff’s gift for interpreting music with class and refinement as both a chamber musician and Soloist, sets her out as one of the most noteworthy cellists of her generation. Tanja Tetzlaff’s trademark is her broad repertoire and desire for new, ground-breaking concert layouts, going beyond classical music performances. In addition to contemporary music, Bach’s cello suites play an outstanding role in Tanja’s life and work. In 2021, Tanja Tetzlaff has been awarded the „Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship“ from the City of Weimar, the Philip Loubser Foundation, and the Thuringia Bach Festival. This will give her the rare opportunity to produce an ambitious film that combines music by Bach and Thorsten Encke with the challenging topic of climate change.
