Born in Cyprus, Plotinos has been performing since the age of eight as well as recording for Cyprus national radio and television. His first professional engagement was a recital with works by Telemann, Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann, which he gave when he was fifteen years old. In 1987 he won the Ρrix Ravel Competition, held in Nicosia, and in 1988, following his win at the national competition, he represented Cyprus at the 4th Eurovision Competition for Young Musicians which was held at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

After he completed his studies with Pitsa Spyridaki in Cyprus, he moved to London in order to study with Alasdair Graham at the Royal College of Music and later with Simon Young and Κaoru Bingham at the University of London (Trinity College of Music).
