Amit Peled (Cello)

From the United States to Europe to the Middle East and Asia, Israeli cellist Amit Peled, a musician of profound artistry and charismatic stage presence, is acclaimed as one of the most exciting instrumentalists on the concert stage today. As a strong advocate of breaking boundaries between performers and the public, trying to promote and share classical music with wider audiences, Peled was recently praised by Baltimore Sun’s Tim Smith: “Peled did a lot of joking in remarks to the audience. His amiable and inviting personality is exactly the type everyone says we’ll need more of if classical music is to survive.”
During the 2012/13 season Mr. Peled had the honor of receiving the famous cello once owned by the legendary Pablo Casals. The instrument was personally handed to him by the maestro’s widow, Mrs. Marta Casals Istomin. Some of the upcoming highlights with this cello include opening the Casals Festival in Spain and celebrating Casals’s life in a recital at the prestigious Pablo Casals Festival in Puerto Rico. Moreover, Peled will record his fourth CD for Centaur Records using this famous instrument.

Mr. Peled has performed as a soloist with many orchestras and in the world’s major concert halls such as: Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall, New York; Salle Gaveau, Paris; Wigmore Hall, London; Konzerthaus, Berlin; and Tel Aviv’s Mann Auditorium. Following his enthusiastically received Alice Tully Hall concerto debut playing the Hindemith cello concerto, the New York Times stated: “Glowing tone, a seductive timbre and an emotionally pointed approach to phrasing that made you want to hear him again.”

Recently Mr. Peled embarked on an extensive concerto tour in the US and Germany with the Nordwest Philharmonie, performing both Shostakovich Concerto No 1 and Victor Herbert’s Cello concerto, visiting nineteen different cities. Moreover, Peled joined the legendary Krzysztof Penderecki for his Cello concerto in Chicago’s Millennium Park; performed the Elgar and Shostakovich Concertos with Maestro Michael Stern and the IRIS Orchestra; Haydn’s C Major Cello concerto with Nicola Luisotti and the San Francisco Opera Orchestra, and the Schumann Concerto with the Israel Chamber Orchestra. After an enthusiastic recital debut at the Kennedy Center, Mr. Peled followed an immediate reinvitation and returned to that prestigious stage during the 2012/13 season.”
