«Antonio est un homme en marche, flamboyant, ne pouvant se contenter de jouer. Il veut que les mots des compositeurs soient compris du public, que l'émotion passe comme la lumière par un vitrail. Plus que tout, il est sensible.» (Alain Van Kerckhoven)
«Antonio Eduardo is a pianist that is included in the each time smaller group of interpreters committed to the music of his time. He is aware of the importance of new aesthetics's promotion and strongly develops his career within a missionary spirit that a few performers seem to possess.» (Gil Nuno Vaz)
«Son interprétation est très originale, très "antonio eduardo" et très musicale. Il y a un parfait équilibre des dynamiques. Le tout est plus sensuel que je l'avais entendu chez d' autres pianistes.» (Boudewijn Buckinx)
