…both Boldrini and Candela are quite proficient and well versed in the Classical Italian style that can be found in these nice, if short, sonatas. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

[Candela] plays the music sensitively, with gracious rubato and tone. …he embellishes the music with ornamentation and passagework. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Christie Grimstad, February 2016

Candela is more deliberative and restraining in the first half; stylistically speaking, Cimarosa’s music brings to mind a semblance of Muzio Clementi. Candela’s flavor comes across as being more recital in nature. But in the second apportionment, Dario Candela intensifies with greater degrees of contrast and forwardness. His ear follows the exuberant flair Cimarosa possessed over 200 years ago: there’s a continuum of respect and decorum, yet an absence of over embellishment and overt boldness. © 2016 Read complete review
