Peter Tuite Launches Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship as Founding Fellow
We are delighted to congratulate RIAM faculty member and former Head of Keyboard, Peter Tuite, on his role as Founding Fellow of the Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship—a celebration of Glenn Gould's achievements, in both his performances of Bach's music and in his ground-breaking engagement with film and recording technology. Each two-year fellowship will enable a mature, established artist to recreate music from this composer and this period in ways that will challenge 21st-century audiences anew and transform their experience and understanding.
Praised for his "astonishing technical facility", "singing line" and "perfect sense of balance", Peter Tuite has garnered international acclaim for his recital and concerto appearances throughout the world. As the Founding Fellow of the Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship, Peter's project will involve exploring differing perspectives on the late keyboard works of J.S. Bach.
