Notes & Reviews:

The name Antonio Caldara is a rarity today on concert programs and in opera houses. The son of a violinist, Caldara (b. 1670), had a desirable musical education, gaining a place as a chorister at St Mark's Basilica where also he received instrumental tuition at the cello and keyboard. We see, through these sonatas, Caldara's original creative roots, composing these sonatas for his own instrument. These works are treasures of the solo cello repertoire. World premiere recording!

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The sound is clear, the playing is early music but warm and well balanced between voices. Ornamentation is tasteful. The sonatas are played with a varied instrumental background. Played with well-recorded balance. Dalsass is a relatively low-keyed performer with clarity of tone and a nice blend with his comrades.
