Cellist Amit Peled stopped by the Strings studio to perform what he likes to call “when Bach met Bloch.” Watch him perform (on Pablo Casals’ former 1733 Goffriller cello)  three pieces by Bloch and two by Bach, in addition to an encore piece: Joachim Stutschewsky’s Latvian Song from Hassidic Suite.
