Angela East has an insatiable curiosity that leads her into
all sorts of musical genres, playing different instruments, teaching both the
cello and the Alexander technique.
Her viola da gamba and bass violin allow her to
explore music from the 17th century, while her traditional
background and zest for a huge range of sounds will allow her to explore the 20th
century repertoire using her 1828 Ventapane cello. She has been well-known as a continuo player
with many of the foremost early music orchestras and ensembles on the baroque
cello for many years and has used this instrument and her five-stringed cello
to record the Bach Cello Suites. She teaches very young children and loves
sharing her experience with as many people as possible.
