A powerful and compelling program following renowned cellist Amit Peled s personal, musical, and spiritual journey. From his childhood growing up in a small kibbutz in Israel and listening to his mother singing the traditional tune Eli Eli, to playing Max Bruch s Kol Nidrei as a young cellist and personally connecting with the Yom Kippur message, Peled explores the desire to balance tradition, identity, and self-expression. Among other works, the program features Mark Kopytman s heart-wrenching Kaddish and Ernest Bloch s beloved three scenes From Jewish Life.
After performing in major concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, London s Wigmore Hall, and Tel Aviv s Mann Auditorium, we are privileged to have Peled join us in the Goldman Theater. Peled will be performing with the historic Goffriller cello (1733) that belonged to the legendary musician Pablo Casals.
