Antonio Pompa-Baldi is an Italian pianist. He won the Cleveland International Piano Competition in 1999 and a silver medal at the 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. He has recorded a tribute to the city of Naples with arrangements of Neapolitan songs by pianist and composer Roberto Piana. Piana writes, “For these ‘creative arrangements,’ it was hard to choose which songs from so many popular melodies and chamber arias. As I began work, I appreciated in every song an immense potential and evocative power that I could use in many different combinations.”
