February 8, 2016" CANTO Can Have a Magical Affect on a Listener" - FAB review from Toronto Music Report
"This record, Canto can have that magical effect on a listener – even one who cannot really follow Italian, or, for that matter, French. Nardi is superb throughout. She has exquisite arrangements to work with and her ensemble is also first rate. Mark well, these are musicians about whom little is known and celebrated. The album will go a long way in bringing much attention to their work. Daniela Nardi deserves that more than anyone else. Something tells me that her fortunes are about to change."
