庞氏是首位于文化大革命后,获邀长驻中国的海外音乐家。在八十年代初期,庞氏为上海音乐学院任指挥,带领音乐学院作巡回演出,并指挥南京、杭州及福州等地的乐团,亦为哈尔滨的夏季艺术节奠定根基。此外,庞氏亦曾指挥首尔管弦乐团,并于同年在将成为美国总统列根先生访华期间,与上海音乐学院乐团合作,演出『全美』音乐会。最近,庞氏亦重返上海,与三藩市交响乐团中提琴副首席刘韵杰及音乐学院乐团,合作首演马提奴的狂想协奏曲。

自一九八七年,庞氏将所有时间都奉献于亚洲青年管弦乐团,并多次与曼纽因、哥美士安拿、马友友、甘奇顿、安美玲、林昭亮、基‧沙涵、金永旭等合作。各国评论家均盛赞亚青为“叹为观止”及“世界上最出色的青年乐团”。

庞氏每年均与亚青到世界各地作演出,包括北京、柏林、上海、星加坡、吉隆坡、东京、大阪、洛杉矶、檀香山、悉尼、马尼拉、香港、罗马尼亚及意大利。二零零二年,庞氏应指挥家哥美士安拿的促请下,出任亚青的艺术总监及指挥。

Richard Pontzious
Artistic Director and Conductor

庞信 Richard Pontzious

Richard Pontzious has spent his life in music. Fluent in Japanese and conversant in Chinese, he founded the Asian Youth Orchestra in 1987 with the distinguished violinist, conductor and humanitarian Yehudi Menuhin.

The idea for the creation of an orchestra that would unite the region and celebrate the talents of Asia's brightest young musicians came as the result of Mr. Pontzious' work as conductor, teacher and writer in Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, where he has lived and worked for some 30 years.

The first overseas musician to be invited to live for an extended time in China after the tumultuous years of the Cultural Revolution, Mr. Pontzious served as conductor-in-residence at the prestigious Shanghai Conservatory of Music in the early1980s, toured with the Conservatory orchestra and conducted the orchestras of Nanjing, Hangzhou, Fuzhou, and Harbin, where he is credited with laying the foundation for a revival of Harbin's Summer Arts Festival. Following concerts in Korea with the Seoul Philharmonic he was honored with an invitation to conduct an all-American music program with the Shanghai Conservatory Orchestra for then President of the United States Ronald Reagan. He recently returned to the Conservatory for a program that included the Chinese premiere of Martinu's Rhapsody for Viola and Orchestra with San Francisco Symphony associate principal violist Liu Yun-jie.

Since 1987, Mr. Pontzious has devoted his professional life to the Asian Youth Orchestra. This has led to extraordinary collaborations with Yehudi Menuhin, Sergiu Comissiona, James Judd, Wang Jian, Alisa Weilerstein, Elmar Oliveira, Yo-Yo Ma, Gidon Kremer, Elly Ameling, Cho-Liang Lin, Gil Shaham, Young Uck Kim, Stefan Jackiw and Alicia de Larrocha. Critics have called AYO "astonishing" and the "finest among youth orchestras around the world."

AYO's tours throughout Asia and around the world have led to conducting appearances in Beijing, Berlin, Shanghai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Osaka, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Sydney, Manila, Hong Kong, as well as in Romania and Italy. At the urging of Sergiu Comissiona, the New York native was appointed Artistic Director and Conductor of the Asian Youth Orchestra in 2002.

A student of American composer Lou Harrison and conductors Sergiu Comissiona, Ferdinand Leitner and Josef Krips, Mr. Pontzious was awarded Hong Kong's Bronze Bauhinia Star in 2000 for his contribution to music and the arts. That same year, at age 56, he received his private pilot's license. Five years later he piloted a single engine Piper Archer across the United States in the company of AYO general manager Keith Lau, who served as navigator for the trip.
