In 2022, he appeared as the bass soloist in a staged performance of Handel’s Messiah under Oliver von Dohnányi at the Silesian Theater in Opava (Czech Republic).
As a laureate of the 2022 Programme Tremplin launched by the Fonds Tutti, an endowment fund that supports young opera soloists, Baldo participated in two gala concerts at the Opéra National de Paris featuring a number of major opera stars including Nicole Car, Nicolas Courjal and Anna Pirozzi.

2023 also marked his first collaboration as a soloist with the Austrian conductor Martin Haselböck.
His first solo album “Caldara – Arias for Bass”, recently issued on the Pan Classics label, was awarded the most prestigious French music magazine prizes “5 Diapason” and “5 Etoiles Classica” and has been nominated for the 2024 International Classical Music Awards (ICMA); the release was followed by a series of concerts in venues including the Salle Cortot in Paris, Schlosstheater Rheinsberg and Festival de Saintes.
