Gramophone, November 2014

Liszt could hardly have received a more sumptuous or ingenious tribute than that offered by Antonio Pompa-Baldi.

…Pompa-Baldi’s playing will send shivers down the spine of even the most ardent lover of virtuosity and high-octane rhetoric. Pianists should take note, though I doubt whether many will come within distance of a truly blistering attack. © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone, August 2014

…Pompa-Baldi does a very fine job with everything here…this disc is quite well played, with the Chopin and Lyapunov being particularly impressive… © 2014 Read complete review

Scene Magazine, July 2014

Listeners will be enchanted by pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi’s virtuosic renditions of Chopin’s Études, Op 10…From the roller-coaster scales, fireworks, and moody joviality of Chopin’s unassailable tribute through to the title track finale written by Sardinian-born composer Roberto Piana, this recording serves as a reminder of Franz Liszt’s greatness, and that he inspired greatness in others. © 2014 Scene Magazine Read complete review

The Buffalo News, July 2014

…[this is an] astonishing Lisztian recital by Italian pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi, whose magnificent playing at a live recital in South Africa from June 2013 is matched by profoundly apt recorded sound. © 2014 The Buffalo News Read complete review
