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)

    Just a friendly reminder that with only a few days to go, Antonio's in-home concert is on the verge of being sold-out and if you would like to attend I highly 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.
