About the album

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. For his fourth Centaur Records release, Collage, Mr. Peled, in tandem with pianist Noreen Cassidy-Polera, play Rachmaninov’s Cello Sonata in g, op. 19, David Popper’s Tarantella, op. 33 and a mid-20th c. cello sonata by the Georgian composer Sulkhan Tsintsadze (1925-91). “Glowing tone, a seductive timbre and an emotionally pointed approach…” (New York Times)


Amit Peled is an Israeli-American cellist and virtuoso. He plays Pablo Casals's Matteo Gofriller cello made circa 1700. Prior to Casals's cello, Peled played a 1689 Andrea Guarneri cello.
Amit Peled's two critically acclaimed CDs “The Jewish Soul” and “Cellobration” were released under the Centaur Records label. His third CD with Centaur Records "Reflections" was released in September 2012.
At 6'5" tall, Peled started life as a basketball player and was called "larger than life" when he enveloped his Guarneri cello and "Jacqueline du Pré in a farmer's body."Peled often surprises audiences with the ways he breaks down barriers between performers and the public, making classical music more accessible to wider audiences through explanations, jokes, and even with a basketball game challenge.
Peled was a student of Bernard Greenhouse and is now a sought-after pedagogue of cello at Peabody Institute and when hired, was the youngest professor at a top musical institution.
Peled also collaborates with pianist Alon Goldstein and clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein in the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio as well as with pianist Alon Goldstein and violinist Ilya Kaler in the Tempest Trio.
