Amit Peled’s “Collage” Reviewed in The Baltimore Sun

cover170x170Collage, a CD by faculty artist Amit Peled, cello, and Noreen Cassidy-Polera, piano, received a review in The Baltimore Sun. “The popular cellist and Peabody Institute faculty member Amit Peled is captured here in typically vibrant form. Playing the cello previously owned by the revered Pablo Casals, Peled performs Rachmaninoff’s rhapsodic G minor Sonata with a natural flow, considerable tenderness and unfailing style,” wrote classical music critic Tim Smith. “Smoothly partnered by pianist Noreen Cassidy-Polera, the cellist also brings abundant technical and interpretive nuance to Tsintsadze’s “Five Pieces on Folk Themes.” The recital is capped by Popper’s “Tarantelle,” another piece ideally suited to Peled’s lively personality.” This review and others can be found here, and the album is available for purchase through iTunes.
