Israeli cellist Amit Peled is returning to Occidental! Kit Nuestadter, Redwood Arts founder, introduced to him to our series 13 years ago when he was a young, upcoming cellist. The love affair between him and our audiences was immediate and has continued over the years. Now world famous, Mr. Peled has graciously agreed to make his fifth appearance in our concerts. He will be playing Pablo Casals’ historic cello, a Gofffriler ca. 1733, presented to him by Mrs. Marta Casals Istomin, widow of Maestro Casals. Mr. Peled will perform both pieces for solo cello and others with pianist Noreen Polera

From the United States to Europe to the Middle East and Asia, Amit Peled, is a musician of profound artistry and charismatic stage presence, acclaimed as one of the most exciting instrumentalists on the concert stage today. At 6’5″ tall, Peled started life as a basketball player and was called “larger than life” when he enveloped his cello. Amit often surprises audiences with the ways he breaks down barriers between performers and the public, making classical music more accessible to wider audiences. Mr. Peled is a Professor at the Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University.
