Antonio Pompa-Baldi’s 2005 appearance on the UNH Celebrity Series was one of the highlights of recent seasons. Students and general audience alike clamored for his return; he had mesmerized all with the sureness as well as the stunning beauty of his playing. He has brought his assured touch on the keyboard to some of the world's major concert venues, performing more than 70 engagements per season. As passionate a chamber musician as he is a recitalist and orchestral soloist, he is a frequent guest at numerous chamber music festivals. Pompa-Baldi
serves as Distinguished Professor of Piano at the Cleveland Institute of Music. His program will include works by Debussy, Schumann, and Liszt.
"The effect made by Antonio Pompa-Baldi's meltingly beautiful performance of Rachmaninoff's Second Sonata was striking." -– James R.Oestreich, The New York Times
