Press Reviews for Antonio:

A potential pianistic messiah.
- Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Wayne Lee Gay

Antonio Pompa-Baldi is a dazzling piano virtuoso, a magnificent artist who demonstrated a deep maturity of expression. His recital was memorable: we heard an interpreter who has wonderful taste, astonishing memory, prodigious sense of color, formidable technique.
- Luis Enrique Julia, El Nuevo Dia. San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Pompa-Baldi went from strength to strength...with laserlike focus, lyrical poise wedded to blazing virtuosity.
- Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Lawrence A Johnson

Pompa-Baldi assembled the intuitive genius and the science of imagination with the most inspired reflection, sustained by the strongest technical rigor.
- La Montagne, Clermont-Ferrand, France

Pompa-Baldi possesses a magical touch, rich in a thousand of nuances, a spectacular technique and an amazing finesse.
- La Provincia, Como, Italy, Maria Terraneo

Antonio Pompa-Baldi displayed his formidable gifts. Here was the real thing. Pompa-Baldi is a probing cultivated musician..He also has marvelous fingers that produced glittering passage-work...He tosses off the most difficult pianistic feats with great panache...he imbued every phrase with integrity, beauty and sincerity. He has an excellent sound, a natural rubato and had perfect control of each voice. He also had a wonderful balance of emotion and intellect.
- NY Concert Review, Howard Aibel (after a recital at Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall)

    phenomenal. I would rather hear Mr P-B play the Ch Etudes than most all the going pianists; he's got an exquisite sensibility.

Antonio will be performing again on opening night of our competition on Fri., June 6th at Le Petit Trianon Theatre in downtown San Jose only this time on a Steinway D. Hope you can make it. - Scott

    *IMPORTANT* I apologize to everyone who still wants to attend this concert, but it is now SOLD OUT and no more tickets are available. I can, however, put you on a waiting list if any cancellations should occur.

    John, I can drive over to the Bay region so it's more convenient for you, if you'd like to go together. (I don't know the traffic so well as I'm new to the region.)

    If anybody is coming from SF or thereabouts and needs a ride (or can offer a ride), I'm coming alone, but have room for 3 in my car.

    Just a friendly reminder that with 1 week to go, Antonio's in-home concert is close to being sold-out and if you would like to attend I recommend purchasing your tickets for it as soon as you can at http://sjipc.com/index.php/events/in-home-concerts/april-19-2014. AN RSVP ALONE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH TO RESERVE A SEAT.
