Marl, Germany 1968 (Moscheles), Luxembourg 1974 (Hiller), Berlin, 1978 (Litolff). Michael Ponti was born in Germany to American parents, but as a young child he was taken back to the United States. His piano studies included time with Gilmour McDonald who himself had been a pupil of the great Polish-American pianist, composer and teacher Leopold Godowsky (1870-1938). Further study was made at Frankfurt with Eric Flinsch, onetime assistant to the pianist and romantic composer Emil von Sauer (1862-1942) . Ferdinand Hiller appears to have met everyone in the world of nineteenth century music. After study with Hummel he had been introduced to the aging Beethoven. As a young man, Hiller knew Chopin, Liszt and Berlioz in Paris.
As is well known, Michael Ponti is probably the most daredevil classic pianist ever born, he has entered with greater intensity and ferrous conviction in trying to rescue and raise awareness for the memory of the future, old forgotten and overlooked treasures despised by many. Korsakov, Felix Mendelssohn, Johannes Brahms, Henry Charles Litolff, Saint Saens, Serge Prokoviev, Eugene D'Albert, Franz Berwald as well as Scriabin, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov complete piano works. Hungarian Gypsy melodies, Hulka Fantasy, One only lives once are performed with this unequalled Gypsy taste combining force and lyricism. The same may be told about Hope Op.

Isaac Ignaz Moscheles (German pronunciation: ) (23 May 1794 – 10 March 1870) was a Bohemian composer and piano virtuoso, whose career after his early years was based initially in London, and later at Leipzig, where he joined his friend and sometime pupil Felix Mendelssohn as Professor of Piano at the Conservatoire. Moscheles was born in Prague to an affluent German-speaking Jewish merchant family. His first name was originally Isaac
Henry Litolff was taken as a pupil for the composer Moscheles. The older man declared Litolff so good that a public performance was arranged which he gave at the age of fourteen. Later as a proficient pianist, Litolff undertook concert tours on the continent and wrote his Concerto Sinfonique about 1846. Berlioz monitored his progress and referred to Litolff "as one of our best composers", praising his knowledge, inspiration, mobility of melodic style, and excellence of orchestration. At 39 minutes it is a long concerto and with a four movement structure broke new ground

Litolff brought important contacts with composers like Berlioz, Bülow, Fetis, Heller, Joachim, Liszt, Moscheles, and the Wieniawski brothers. Meyer's son Theodor Litolff (1839-1912), who was adopted by the elder Litolff, took over the business when Litolff divorced his mother in 1858. Theodor was an ingenious inventor, improving high-speed presses and using zinc plates for music engraving.
