Profile:
English cellist, born in 1948 in London, specialising in the performance of music of the 18th and 19th centuries on period instruments. He also plays modern cello. He is the son of William Pleeth.
He has recorded the complete cello sonatas of Geminiani (with Christopher Hogwood) and Vivaldi (with Robert Woolley and Suki Towb), trio sonatas by Händel and Corelli and chamber music by J. C.
