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 [a=William Pleeth].

He has recorded the complete cello sonatas of Geminiani (with [a=Christopher Hogwood]) and Vivaldi (with Robert Woolley and Suki Towb), trio sonatas by Händel and Corelli and chamber music by J. C. Bach with the English Concert Chamber Group. With fortepianist [a=Melvyn Tan], he recorded Beethoven's complete sonatas and variations for cello and piano.

Aside from Classical appearances, he has also been on many film soundtracks, such as We Were Soldiers by Nick Glennie-Smith and Gladiator by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard.
