Tanja Tetzlaff

the first elected female scholarship winner 2021-2023

Cellist Tanja Tetzlaff has been a defining musician of her generation for decades, both as a soloist and as a chamber musician. Over the course of her career, she has performed as a soloist with Daniel Harding, Philippe Herreweghe and Sir Roger Norrington, among others. 
Since April 2021, over the course of two years, Tanja will realize a film project that relates Bach's famous cello suites to nature and climate change, exploring ideas of culture, inheritance and responsibility. In addition to her concert activities, Tetzlaff has long been involved with environmental issues – and can now combine her two great passions through this wholly unique project.
