A brief summary of Baldini's critical acclaim in 

Christian Baldini Requiem, Teatro Colon June 2014 - 
Translated reviews

La Nacion
Director Christian Baldini was particularly scrupulous, neat, clever and thorough, and that allowed him to convey the enjoyment of a full score of ideas that worked hand in glove with the action. And he achieved a performance of very high quality with outstanding transparency of sound, with brass and percussion in high relief. 
Jorge Ar?oz Bad?

El Dia
A strong and difficult work to execute, with a good sense of orchestration, which was successfully interpreted by the musicians under the baton of Christian Baldini. 
Nicolas Isasi

The Herald Buenos Aires
Young Argentine conductor Christian Baldini gave a good account of himself and was well seconded by a responsive Orchestra. 
Pablo Bardin

The orchestra was extremely fluid, playing with impeccable detail under the direction of the California-based Argentine, Christian Baldini
