“glowing tone, a seductive timbre and emotionally pointed approach to phrasing that made you want to hear him again.” – The New York Times

Programme: JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH Sonata no. 3 in g minor for Viola da Gamba and Piano, BWV1029 BRAHMS Sonata no. 1 in e minor, op. 38 Intermission STUTSCHEWSKY Hassidic Suite CHOPIN Sonata in g minor, op. 65 – III. Largo POPPER Tarantella

Internationally acclaimed cellist and pianist, Amit Peled and Noreen Polera, will take you on a journey through time with music for predecessors of the cello and piano into the 20th century. This performance marks the duo’s Western Canada Debut after having recently performed in New Hampshire, at Harvard Musical Association in Boston, at Tuesday Evening Concert Series in Virginia, and in a California tour of Beethoven sonatas. The famously rich sonority of Amit Peled with Noreen Polera’s mastery of cello-piano repertoire is a match made in heaven!
