Stockton Symphony's Classics Season Finale Presents AMIT PELED Tonight

Cellist Amit Peled brings a very special musical instrument with him when he returns to perform with the Stockton Symphony tonight, April 12, at 6:00 pm in Delta College's Atherton Auditorium.

After playing for legendary Pablo Casal's widow in the summer of 2012, she selected him to take the virtuoso's prized cello on one last world tour. Mr. Peled was given the 1700s Goffriller cello on loan and he has been touring the country ever since, performing with Casals' cello-which will eventually be put on permanent display in a Madrid museum, never to be played again.

It was the recordings of Pablo Casals' cello performances that first drew Peled to the cello, when he was growing up in a small Israeli kibbutz. He is now a musician of profound artistry and charismatic stage presence and is acclaimed as one of the most exciting instrumentalists on the concert stage today.

Amit Peled's performances as soloist with orchestra and as recitalist have taken him to the world's major concert halls-New York's Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall, Paris's Salle Gaveau, London's Wigmore Hall, Berlin's Konzerthaus, and Tel Aviv's Mann Auditorium. Recently he made an extensive concerto tour in the U.S. and Germany with the Nordwest Philharmonie, and joined the legendary Krzysztof Pendericki for his Cello Concerto in Chicago's Millennium Park, among many other concerto appearances.

One of the most sought after cello pedagogues, Peled is a professor at the Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University.

Mr. Peled will be performing Schumann's Cello Concerto, which begins with one of the most admired themes ever written for cello. The Symphony will also be presenting Rossini's, Overture to William Tell, from his last opera, and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 9, composed three months after the surrender of Hitler's Germany.

Program notes, complete with audio clips can be found on the Symphony website at www.StocktonSymphony.org.
