We are thrilled to welcome Van Cliburn silver-medalist Antonio Pompa-Baldi to our illustrious lineup of guest artists. 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. Learn more about Mr. Pompa-Baldi’s impressive career on our website.
We present Antonio Pompa-Baldi in concert Wednesday, June 15 at 7:30PM in the UofSC School of Music Recital Hall. This concert is only available as an in-person event and seating is limited, so purchase your ticket as soon as possible!
In addition to performing works by Bach-Busoni, Franz Liszt, and Howard Ferguson, Mr. Pompa-Baldi will perform Glances on the Divine Comedy by Roberto Piana, a work commissioned by and dedicated to Pompa-Baldi himself. Glances on the Divine Comedy is a set of 25 pieces, each portraying a character, or a place, from the epic Poem by Dante Alighieri.
Additionally, he will serve as jury chair of the Arthur Fraser International Piano Competition all day Friday, June 17 and lead a masterclass on Saturday, June 18 3:00pm-4:00pm.
Antonio Pompa-Baldi is replacing Fabio Bidini, who was previously scheduled for the Wednesday evening Artist Showcase. He could no longer join us due to unforeseen circumstances. We are thankful for the serendipity that Mr. Pompa-Baldi was available due to the cancellation of another engagement.
