    I'm looking forward to buying the acoustic trio cd. Is there a name for this band? Will there be a video made to promote the music? How exciting!

    Thanks for all your encouraging messages...! This year I am invited to perform with my band or other formats in a few different countries and continents, such as in Brazil soon....Paulo thanks for attending almost all my performances in your country, too soon to give you a setlist but it will be a mix of early material like "Mirage" among others and newer material. Meanwhile I am preparing a recording as an acoustic trio with Stanley Clarke and French Gypsy guitarist Bireli Lagrene, the album should come out in early 2015, followed by live performances including in the U.S. hopefully. Then I am also in contact with Jon Anderson ex-singer from Yes to start a project together, also with plans to tour in the U.S. in 2015. So please keep visiting this site for updates.

  • An unforgettable concert experience with you

    David Dean

    Orange Park FL USA

    Dear M. Ponty... I've just discovered your website and am delighted to be able to reminisce about one of the most exciting live performances I've ever seen -- yours. I was at the New York City concert on the pier by the Hudson River in 1984, during your "Open Mind" tour, when the skies erupted in a furious thunderstorm. Not many of us in the audience left (maybe we were too scared to), but frankly, we were afraid for your safety. After all, you continued to play your electric violin in a spectacular lightning storm. But I will never forget that image of you, absolutely soaked, your hair nearly horizontal in the wind, DEFYING THE ELEMENTS on that stage. You didn't even step upstage where it might have been more protected -- you were downstage center, right in the storm, playing for us. It seemed to energize you even more, challenging the weather to do its worst -- it wasn't going to stop YOU from performing. It was positively thrilling. So, M. Ponty, thank you so much for a lifetime of music, and a thrilling concert experience nearly thirty years ago. David

    Moseigneur Ponty, I am so glad that you will play again in my hometown São Paulo on June 10th. I had a major surgery in June 8th, 2013 and to see the great Ponty again, a year after that will be incredible! I am glad to tell you that I went to your concerts 3 times: São Paulo, about 1987, São Paulo with ROS about 2005(I was in the first row!) and Curitiba w Orquestra Sinfonica do Paraná 2012(first row too, with my girlfriend) Such a fantastic experience!!!! So, my girlfriend and me are looking forward to listen to your fantastic music again!!!! If it won't bother you, what will be the setlist? Tahnk you Paulo

  • Love your music


    It's not hyperbole to say your music changed my life. I had always like music, and was a percussionist in school band for 5 years. So I liked the symphonic and marching band music from school, and popular music, especially disco. Then a friend played the first part of Imaginary Voyage, and I was blown away. What is that? I asked. So discovering Imaginary Voyage and Aurora introduced me to the world of jazz-fusion. Soon afterwards I discovered the art-rock of Genesis and Rush. So those are my three biggest musical influences. (Your guitarist Darryl Stuemer played with Genesis) I was playing around with a solo violin from Miroslav Philharmonik, and applying Guitar Rig effects to it. So I'm searching for a good way to produce an electric violin sound inside my library of soft synths. Between IK Multimedia's Total Workstation bundle and Komplete 9, there are approximately 26,000 sounds. And I have other programs. Hopefully I'll figure out how to make a good electric violin sound. Thanks for the inspiration. Hope to upload some music someday to my YouTube channel.
