KKL Luzern – Light-footed heroes
„…great limberness and flawless intonation …“
Luzerner Zeitung – September 2014
CD “Tromba Veneziana”
“Underpinning this enterprising journey is a sprightly and stylish bank of modern instruments to match the felt-of-everything and even-toned Boldoczki…the soloist is very much a child of this time with Baroque gesture, shape and ornamentation informing his considerable technical armory.”
Gramophone Magazine – April 2014
"…no one can doubt Boldoczki's accomplishment, successfully entering the idiom of these works and with such consistently good taste and judgement."
Gramophone magazine – April 2014
„The Hungarian trumpet player is one of the stars of this instrument and he demonstrated his class by concerts composed by Torelli, Vivaldi and Donizetti by each note.
The rapid passages were performed alike the easiness of a flute, parts with more power were played with agitated resolution and the melodies came out with dearly chant.”
Kölner Stadtanzeiger – February 2014
„His ability to purfle, his sense of style in interpretation and his charming beautiful tone are so natural and sincere (…). Astonishing is his sensation of phrasing, the gently legato. No tone gets sharp or rough, all is nobly rounded and lyrically penetrated.
Concerti – Peter Krause – February 2014
"Gábor Boldoczki’s latest CD ‘Tromba Veneziana’ proves that not only is cross-instrument transcription possible, but, if done with due thought, sensitivity, and attention to detail, the results can be simply stunning."

Musikverein Vienna: Something warm on cold days
"The excellent trumpet player Boldoczki (…) captivated in the concert of Torelli, Vivaldi and Donizetti with a warm, understated trumpet sound, which fit very well in the bed of strings."
Neue Presse, (hd) – December 2013
Trumpets blow away the clichés
„By precise articulation Gábor Boldoczki illustrated the baroque speech of sound…Standing Ovations.“
Neue Luzerner Zeitung, Urs Mattenberger – December 2012
The trumpet also can play Belcanto
“Purest Belcanto with sparkling clean polished top-notes were given off by the Hungarian Boldoczki on his trumpet.”
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Michael Dellith – December 2012
„Boldoczki performs Händel’s Concerto in G-minor HWV 287, originally composed for oboe – and his trumpet sings this piece in a more poignant, more harmonious way than the oboe ever could. His embouchure is flawless, his tone smooth and elegant, his slur flows effortlessly. This performance appears to be inconceivably perfect - yet never suspicious, because Boldoczki’s perfection is never ordinary or unnatural – grand applause.”
Sueddeutsche Zeitung – August 2012
A brilliant trumpet and Baroque on the first Sunday in Advent
“Gábor Boldoczki impresses with the splendid ease and radiance of his performance: precise phrasings and variations in articulation and dynamics, the highly defined yet warm tones of his instrument make the movements of the Torelli Concerto and the Handel Suite delicate treasures.”
Neue – Vorarlberger Zeitung, November 2011
