Piani’s 12 sonatas op.1 are all that survive of his output: everything else was lost or destroyed. Published in 1712, these sonatas provide a fascinating insight into baroque performing techniques. Piani’s instructions on dynamics, fingering, bowing techniques, ornamentation, tempo and characterisation were printed in the preface to the score. The music is of considerable beauty, and this CD marks the world premiere recordings of these works. On this CD his sonatas are placed alongside those of his great contemporaries, London-based fellow Italian Geminiani, and Handel, whose great D major sonata is one of his finest instrumental works.
