Baldych's impeccable, visionary performances on Magical Theatre reveal the possibilities of the violin, ranging from fiery intensity to otherworldly prettiness. Baldych reaches the highs and lows of the emotional spectrum with stunningly vivid imagery, creating a kind of poetry that is narrated by musical notes. - Robert Sutton / Jazz Corner
An experienced listener will be able to discover many delicate musical hints and references in this music, especially in Bałdych's solos, but surely anybody able of enjoying good music will find here starlight qualities (…) What remains is to hope that as many music connoisseurs as possible will eventually discover this gem and hold it dear to their hearts. I certainly hope it does happen, big time, as it is well deserved! - Adam Baruch / Jazzis
