Early years[ edit ] Born in Fresnillo , Zacatecas , Manuel Maria Ponce moved with his family to the city of Aguascalientes only a few weeks after his birth and lived there until he was 15 years old.

He was famous for being a musical prodigy; according to his biographers, he was barely four years of age when, after having listened to the piano classes received by his sister, Josefina, he sat in front of the instrument and interpreted one of the pieces that he had heard. Immediately, his parents had him receive classes in piano and musical notation. There he remained until , the year in which he returned to the city of Aguascalientes.

This was only the beginning of his travels. He studied in Germany as a pupil of Martin Krause at the Stern conservatory in Berlin between and Years at the National Conservatory[ edit ] This sculpture is behind the Exedra, the Plaza de la Patria de Aguascalientes , and is similar to the sculpture of the grave of the composer in the Rotunda of Illustrious Men. After his years abroad, Ponce returned to Mexico to teach piano and music history at the National Conservatory of Music from to and from to He spent the intervening years of to in Havana, Cuba.

In he composed his most famous work "Estrellita" little star , which is not a normal love song, as is usually thought, but "Nostalgia Viva" live nostalgia. Heitor Villa-Lobos — , who met Ponce in Paris in the s, wrote I remember that I asked him at that time if the composers of his country were as yet taking an interest in native music, as I had been doing since , and he answered that he himself had been working in that direction. It gave me great joy to learn that in that distant part of my continent there was another artist who was arming himself with the resources of the folklore of his people in the struggle for the future musical independence of his country.

He was also the first Mexican composer to project popular music onto the world stage: "Estrellita", for example, has been part of the repertoire of the main orchestras of the world and countless singers, although quite often the interpreter ignores the origin of the song as well as its author.

In he received the National Science and Arts Prize. He was married to Clementina Maurel, next to whom he died in Mexico City. In his honor there is a board of recognition by the state of Aguascalientes at the base of the column of The Exedra , next to the fountain from a spring dedicated to this musical poet, in the city of Aguascalientes where he grew up and first studied music.
