Biography

Angela East is widely respected as one of the most brilliant and dynamic performers in the period instrument world, praised in The Times, London, for the 'elemental power' of her cello playing.  She has spent most of her life researching and performing all kinds of music in a historically-informed way, with the main focus on baroque and the music of J.S. Bach.
She has given numerous concerto performances in London's Queen Elizabeth and Wigmore Halls, and has performed as soloist and continuo cellist with many of Europe's leading baroque orchestras.  Among her impressive list of concert credits are La Scala, Milan, Sydney Opera House, Versailles and Glyndebourne.  She is a founder member of the innovative baroque group Red Priest and she always tries to combine her knowledge of performance practice with imagination and creativity.  Her long awaited disc of Bach's Cello Suites was released in 2009 and her CD of popular baroque cello works, 'Baroque Cello Illuminations', was chosen as 'CD of the Fortnight' in Classical Music Magazine.
