Our good friend, internationally renowned cellist Amit Peled will perform a special bonus concert on Saturday, June 9, 2012. The program opened with two works for solo cello: J.S. Bach‘s Suite No. 1 and György Ligeti‘s Sonata. Mr. Peled was joined for the second half of the program by pianist Stefan Petrov for a performance of Robert Schumann‘s beloved Cello concerto.
Aclaimed as one of the most exciting instrumentalists on the concert stage today, Israeli cellist Amit Peled has performed as soloist with orchestra in many of the world’s major concert halls including Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall in New York, Salle Gaveau in Paris, Wigmore Hall in London, Konzerthaus in Berlin, and Tel Aviv’s Mann Auditorium. In addition to his rigorous performance schedule, Mr. Peled maintains an active teaching career, both through masterclasses and his post as Professor of Cello at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University.
As always, it was a great pleasure to welcome him in performance at Spencerville. A short film about Bach’s Cello Sonata No. 1 and other clips of this concert are currently in production and will be available for viewing soon.
