Israeli-American cellist Amit Peled hopes to bring the concerto back into the repertoire by performing it around the country, including in an American music concert with the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra. For former U. S. Ambassador to South Africa Delano Lewis, narrating Aaron Copland’s powerful “Lincoln Portrait” in the same concert has powerful personal meaning.
