NEW TO YOUTUBE | Cellists Amit Peled and Ismael Guerrero Perform "Siblings" Program

The cellists perform here alongside artwork by Peled’s sister, Zemer Peled


This video was recorded in May 2020 as a commission from Zemer Peled’s Baltimore art studio. The “Siblings” concert program, involving both solo and duo cello works also streamed live on The Violin Channel from New York City, for the Charlotte White's Salon De Virtuosi recital in September 2020. 

The program includes Williams’ "Theme from Schindler’s List," Bach’s Solo Cello Suite No. 4, Boccherini’s Sonata for Two Cellos in C Major, Cassadó’s "Sonata Nello Stile Antico Spagnuolo" arranged by Peled and Guerrero, and Cohen and Weiss’ “Hallelujah” and “What a Wonderful World,” arranged by Brett Howland. 

The recording features world-renowned Israeli-American cellist Amit Peled and his protégé, Cuban-born Ismael Guerrero, while surrounded by Zemer’s sculptures and design plans. 

Based in the US, Zemer is a graduate of London’s Royal College of Art and her sculptures of various sizes are created from piecing together thousands of porcelain shards.




A graduate of the Peabody Conservatory studying with Amit Peled, Guerrero is currently pursuing his Master’s Degree under Ralph Kirshbaum at the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music

Having won several competitions, Guerrero also participated in masterclasses with Carlos Prieto, Clemen Hagens, Leidi Litschauer, Frans Helmerson, Colin Carr, and Laurence Lesser. 

Amit has been a professor at the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University since 2003 and performed at venues including Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Paris’ Salle Gaveau, Wigmore Hall, and Konzerthaus Berlin. 

He is represented worldwide by CTM Classics and performs on a c.1695 Giovanni Grancino cello — on loan from the Roux Family Foundation. “Working on this project with [Amit Peled] was so inspiring during the height of the pandemic!” CTM classics wrote on their social media.
