Notes & Reviews:

Macedonian violinist Emilio Percan makes his recording debut with this album of Baroque music for violin for Onyx. Also premiering here are the Sonatas of Giovanni Antonio Piani (1678 - 1760), one of the most important violinists of the Baroque. Piani's reputation as a composer rests solely upon these twelve Sonatas, published in 1712 (all his other works are lost). In an unusually long and detailed preface, Piani provided highly detailed instructions on bowing, fingering, dynamics, ornamentation and tempi. In effect, this is the most detailed instruction manual for students of the Baroque violin and the performance practice of the day. These fascinating works are paired with music by Piani's better-known contemporaries, Handel and Geminiani. Percan's sparkling performances will be of interest to anyone who loves Baroque music.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2012
Percan is an extremely capable violinist. Playing a modern Baroque-style instrument by Johannes Loescher, he makes a fine, bright, ringing tone, and many of the quicker movements sound brilliant and inspiriting. But I miss the close engagement with details of phrasing...One can imagine Piani's music appearing more strongly engaging, then, but Percan has certainly shown us how worthwhile and effective it is.
