Antonio Pompa-Baldi, piano.

Had not heard him for quite some time, interesting programme,Hummel always a treat, one of my fav Liszt works, not heard the Grieg in piano version ( the orchestral is better ), nor ever the Piana work. Rubinstein used to play the Poulenc.Marvelous,spontaneous playing here:

A bio from Cleveland Institute of Music,where he is a faculty member :
“ Born and raised in Foggia, Italy, Antonio Pompa-Baldi won the Cleveland International Piano Competition in 1999 and embarked on a career that continues to extend across five continents. He also won a silver medal at the 2001 Van Cliburn Competition, as well as a bronze medal at the 1998 Marguerite Long Competition in Paris. The New York Times described his playing as “meltingly beautiful.”
Pompa-Baldi founded the Todi International Music Masters Festival, of which he is artistic director and faculty member, and sits on the juries of the most prestigious piano competitions in the world.”

I have the above disc from the 2001 Van Cliburn, but have not kept up with Pompa-Baldi. He's been busy, issuing lots of fine recordings. His wife is also a pianist, and they sometimes give concerts together. I look forward to hearing this. Thanks for posting!

Absolutely wonderful! Also heard this album below on amazon. Pompa-Baldi is quite the artist, with lots of recordings to prove it. I am now an admirer. Lance & Barney, you should hear this recital!
