Sat, 10/01/2005 - 00:00 - Review (Le point)

« Cette jeune pianiste vient de sortir son troisième CD, Mirror of Truth, album séduisant qui s'aventure sur de nombreux territoires entre world et new jazz. Son père, le violoniste Jean-Luc Ponty, la rejoindra sur scène. »

Tue, 03/01/2005 - 00:00 - Review (Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace)

« Autour de quelques tables et chaises posées nonchalamment, les compositions de la pianiste Clara Ponty viennent agréablement vous chatouiller les oreilles. Avec un duo de piano et de percussions, le choix opéré par ces deux artistes est pour le moins inhabituel. On aurait pu croire à un choc frontal, mais bien au contraire c'est une symbiose étonnante qui naît de cette rencontre, chacun arrivant à poser sa griffe tout en respectant l'autre. Avec des sons à la fois creux et clairs, étouffés et ouverts, le percussionniste signe la touche "world" de ce tandem, tandis que la pianiste développe avec virtuosité des mélodies modernes aux pointes jazzy. Au fil des notes, c'est une course poursuite entre les musiciens qui s'opère : un jeu avec les temps et les contretemps. En osant parfois un murmure, un fredonnement, Clara Ponty dévoile un peu plus son univers à un public définitivement sous le charme. »

Tue, 02/01/2005 - 00:00 - Review: Clara Ponty "shows enormous talent" (O's Place Jazz Newsletter)

"Clara shows enormous talent as a pianist. She is the daughter of Jean-Luc Ponty who joins her on selected songs as well as producing this CD. Clara writes all of the music. It is a soothing set of compositions that sound almost like a cinema score. It is natural and relaxing, different from Jean-Luc's fusion and surfacing her own signature. She has strong potential."

Wed, 12/15/2004 - 00:00 - Review: Mirror of Truth "dazzling" (Solo Piano Magazine)

"Mirror of Truth is pianist/composer Clara Ponty's long awaited third release of original compositions, and it is dazzling ! Many artists are able to freely weave in and out of genres, but Clara Ponty's artistry places her in a class by herself. "Mirror of Truth" is a stellar album, and it's so great to hear what Clara Ponty has been up to the past five years! Sure to be on my TOP 10!"

« Mirror of Truth est le dernier enregistrement très attendu de la pianiste-compositeur Clara Ponty, et c'est éblouissant ! Mirror of Truth est un album solaire, et c'est si formidable d'entendre ce que Clara a accompli depuis ces 5 dernières années ! Son CD fait déjà partie de mon TOP 10 ! »

Thu, 12/02/2004 - 00:00 - Review: Mirror of Truth "is like an Oasis from the stress of daily living" (Cosmik Debris)

"Clara Ponty creates songs that are both evocative and reverie producing. George Winston comes to mind. The interplay between Clara on piano and her father on violin produces emotionally satisfying music that rewards repeat listening. Serene and dreamlike, 'Mirror Of Truth' is like an Oasis from the stress of daily living. Once there, its hard to leave."

Wed, 12/01/2004 - 00:00 - Review (Abstract Logix)

"You guessed it, the well noted violin master Jean-Luc Ponty has a daughter. A very beautiful and gifted one at that. Displaying Jazz, Classical and even New Age influences, Clara Ponty has created a compelling third album that reflects this young woman's natural gracefulness as well as her musical attributes both as a pianist and composer of considerable talent. Like Anoushka Shankar, Norah Jones and their father, Pandit Ravi Shankar, this album proves that indeed, the apple falls close to the tree."

Wed, 12/01/2004 - 00:00 - Review (Amazon)

"Classical artists making crossover music are usually sabotaged by a surfeit of technique and an inability to restrain themselves for emotional and musical clarity. Witness any opera singer tackling pop songs. They bludgeon them with virtuosity. That has never been pianist Clara Ponty's problem. A concert-trained pianist, she shifted gears several years ago to create music that revealed her classical background but fell into a new instrumental music netherworld. Clara Ponty's original compositions still linger with a haunted, if not always provocatrice, allure."
