CTM Classics has this month announced the release of Israeli-American cellist Amit Peled's new album: Bach Suites : Casals Cello.
The disc features Bach's Solo Cello Suites No. 1 in G Major, No. 2 in D Minor and No. 3 in C Major - all recorded on the 1733 Goffriller cello, previously owned and performed on by luminary cellist, Pablo Casals.
"I grew up admiring the legendary Casals recording of the Suites and I wanted to pay my humble homage to the Maestro, his cello, and to those monumental Bach pieces using the same cello that Casals played for his 1936/7 recording ..." Amit has told The Violin Channel.
"The Casals Goffriller cello is a timeless creation ... while we are just passengers enjoying it while we can and passing it on to the next driver," the Peabody Institute faculty member has said.
