Notes & Reviews:

Born and raised in Foggia , Italy , Antonio Pompa-Baldi first came to the U.S. in 1999 to participate in the Cleveland International Piano Competition. He won the First Prize, and, while fulfilling all the engagements that came with it, he and his wife, Italian pianist Emanuela Friscioni, decided to make Cleveland their home. A top prize winner at the 1998 Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud Competition of Paris, France, Antonio Pompa-Baldi also won a silver medal at the 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, as well as the Award for the Best Performance of a New Work.

"Antonio Pompa-Baldi's Grieg series has already been praised...and I can only add my delighted assent. He may not be Gieseking or Leif Ove Andsnes, but he plays Grieg with disarming lyricism and intelligence, bolstered by a warm recording...(Grieg's) work has a distinctive sound, one both regional and universal. These pieces are full of poetry, unusual harmonies, and haunting melody. There is often an affable surface with a beautiful touch of melancholy. You can listen to them in any mood and in a very few minutes feel enriched." - American Record Guide
