and the touching emotionality that permeats Soldano's interpretation is simply disarming..."

           Grete Catus - The New Listener

Alfonso Soldano is a great pianist promise, supported by outstanding instrumental skills, as well as a musical sensitivity out of ordinary. Alfonso Soldano comes from Apulia region (Italy), and therefore belongs to a land that is and has always been a nursery of first-class artists. Wish with all my heart!

Aldo Ciccolini

I had the chance to listen piano performance by Alfonso Soldano (Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 3 op.30), and I was very impressed by his great temperament and his executive incisiveness.
I wish him a prestigious career because his talent deserves!
