Amit Peled, cello
--with Eli Kalman, piano

Known for his fiery playing and "simply gorgeous sound" (The Baltimore Sun), Israeli cellist Amit Peled is acclaimed as one of the most exciting instrumentalists on the concert stage today.  "Peled's playing is sweepingly temperamental with a rich sound, and he is unreservedly immersed in the music," says The Jerusalem Post.  He plays a rare Guarneri cello made in Cremona more than 300 years ago.
