Israeli-American cellist, conductor, and pedagogue Amit Peled, a musician of profound artistry and charismatic stage presence, is acclaimed worldwide as one of the most exciting and virtuosic instrumentalists on the concert stage today.

He is a founding member of the Tempest Trio and Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio. Peled lives in Baltimore and performs on a cello made by the Italian master Giovanni Grancino, ca. 1695, on generous loan from the Roux Family Foundation. Musical America named Peled one of the Top 30 Influencers of 2015. From 2012 to 2018, Peled performed on the Pablo Casals 1733 Goffriller cello. For more information, visit www.amitpeled.com
