Review (The Times of India)

"(At a) much awaited Clara Ponty concert for music lovers in Bombay and New Delhi in December...Ponty fans got a delightful taste of her soulful pieces ranging from classics to jazz. The solo pieces, notable for their excellent use of counterpoint, were seamlessly blending classical, contemporary jazz, pop and African rhythms."

Review (New Age Retailer)

"With her piano as the centerpiece of her impressionistic style, Ponty is surrounded by the occasional subtle shadings of synthesizers, flutes, guitar, cello, syncopated tables, chimes, and unobtrusive percussion..."The Embrace" is an album abundant with evocative images."

« Le piano de Clara est au coeur de son style impressionniste, nuancé par l'utilisation ponctuelle de synthétiseurs, flûtes, guitare, violoncelle, tablas, carillons, sur fond de percussions... L'album « The Embrace » foisonne d'images évocatrices.»

Review: The Embrace "is a gem" (Solo Piano Magazine)

The Embrace rises to the top in its musical complexity, integrity and pure artistry... Each track on The Embrace is a gem, and each is uniquely itself. Clara's amazing piano technique shines through on each piece, and she is joined by a fascinating combination of musicians and instruments."

Review (Time Out New York)

"The Embrace ... is a radical departure for classical music, a medium that tends to ignore the visual."

Review (Wind and Wire)

« La technique pianistique de Clara transparaît sur chaque morceau et se joigne à elle une combinaison fascinante de musiciens et d'instruments. »
