Brother of Juan Bautista Pla. [...] He performed in 1751-2 with Juan at the Concert Spirituel and at court in Paris, where he also played the violin, and in 1753-4 in London. He then returned to Spain for a few years during which he occasionally deputized in the royal chapel. In 1759 he rejoined Juan in Germany, where he died three years later after returning from a visit to Italy.
