Product Description

Topping Billboard's Classical Chart at NO. 1 for 8 weeks in a row with their debut album, the original all-sibling piano phenomenon the 5 Browns proved that they are classical music's five irresistible new champions. The 5 Browns - Desirae, Deondra, Gregory, Melody and Ryan - made history at New York's Julliard School where, for the first time, it accepted five members from the same family and had them attend the prestigious institution simultaneously for five years. Having been seens on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and 60 Minutes, as well as featured in USA Today, People Magazine, The New York Times and Entertainment Weekly, the 5 Browns are ready to continue capturing the hearts of millions with their new album No Boundaries. Red Seal Current. 2006.

This piano-playing team of five siblings could be easily dismissed as just another crossover ploy, but that would be a mistake. My initial surprise turned into an hour of pleasant listening and, on rehearings, to admiration for this unique ensemble of talented young artists. For one thing, they've got the chops to bring off some fiendishly difficult works. Listen to the way sisters Desirae and Deondra tackle modernist Witold Lutoslawski's Variations on a Theme of Paganini, or brother Ryan's colorful romp through Ginastera's tricky dance rhythms. The fivesome also achieve carefully balances in their concerted works, with a scrupulously turned version of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and their arrangement of highlights from Stravinsky's Firebird. Those in doubt should hear tracks two through four, for irresistible versions of Lecouna's popular Malaguena, a fetching combination of Dvorak and Copland, and a piano rag by John Novacek. A delightful, spirited disc that never fails to please. --Dan Davis

Customer Reviews

A great introduction to classical music for the younger set.
Nancy E. Merrill
I was very impressed with the first DVD / CD from the 5 Browns, and and at least as impressed with this latest one too!
Sally Beety
Their musical abilities are amazing and the video work is fun and interesting.

These young, hip, classically trained wonders have definitely shown that their first album was only the beginning. Brilliant playing by all individually (or in duet form) and unbelievable sync-ness when armed with five pianos and 50 fingers. If you're looking for something different in the classical realm, look no further. A great introduction to classical music for the younger set.

Years ago, when I was still an Origami Sakka (master of paperfolding) I had two artistic rules that I followed: 1) find out what everybody else is doing in the field, and 2) do something that nobody else in the field is doing. So where some of the other technical masters were working on increasing the number of ways to fold a paper elephant, I was making paper bananas and folded masks of Woody Allen, Laurel and Hardy, and a full figure multipiece construction of Charlie Chaplin. I was even wrongfully credited with inventing a style of origami called "pictorial origami."

And what does this have to do with the Browns? Well, pianists are a dime a dozen, and the only way anyone can make it in that particularly dense artistic field is if they can come up with something different. Aside from being young and highly technically gifted, the Browns have a tendency to choose non-conventional works that best show off their unique abilities. And this album features a lot of very unconventional works: Lutoslawski's Variations on a Theme of Paganini (played by the two oldest sisters); Novacek's Full Stride Ahead Piano Rag (played by Gregory); Gargoyles (played by Melody); Ginastera's Danzas Argentinas (played by Ryan); and a superb version for five pianos of Stravinsky's Firebird. And let us not ignore Desirae and Deondra's dazzling version of Ravel's Feria which sounds more like ten pianists than two.

As with their first DVD/CD there are marvelous video clips of the Browns blasting away on their five Steinways. I was disappointed that there was no interview clip like there was on the last. Well, there's always next time.

Their self-titled first album, 'The 5 Browns' was an immediate hit, leading to TV appearances as well as concerts. Their second CD 'No Boundaries' is just out, and it's pure pleasure. Three cuts feature all five of them; but there are also several by one alone, or two or three of them, in various configurations, including the three sisters at one piano. The possibilities are endless!

Three tracks feature all 5 Browns, and the amount of sound that comes from five pianos is astonishing. At times they manage to sound very like a Jazz Band in that version of Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue'. The pairing of Copland's Shaker hymn 'Simple Gifts' from Appalachian Spring and Dvorak's 'Going Home' theme from his Ninth Symphony, is a masterful idea. 'The Firebird' by Stravinsky comes to vivid life under the 50 fingers of the siblings. It begins with the utmost delicacy, and evolves into effervescent musical color.

Two of the sisters perform first as a duet (four hands, one piano) in The 'Feria' section of Ravel's lyrical and evocative 'Rhapsodie espagnole.' Later, they each get their own instrument for a scintillating version of the two-piano duo by Witold Lutosławski--his 'Variations on a Theme of Paganini'.

The most recent composition featured on the CD-'Gargoyles, Op. 29', by Lowell Liebermann (born 1941), or two sections of it show the formidable interpretive talent of another sister. III: Allegro monderato and IV: Presto feroce.

The brothers aren't left out, however. Greg shines in two solo tracks: 'Full Stride Ahead, Rag' by John Novacek, and the 'Hungarian Rhapsody No.6' of Franz Liszt. It's probably not coincidence that both of these works are strongly-if quirkily-rhythmical, rather forceful pianistic displays, at which he very clearly excels.

This CD was a great purchase. The Browns have phenomenal technical virtuosity, which is not compromised by their choice of extremely difficult pieces. The numbers that have all of them playing together are specifically impressive, as I could not discern they were separate players. They play together so seamlessly, it is hard to believe they are all so young. However, I guess you would expect that from the first family ever to have all 5 children get into Julliard and receive scholarships no less. Their talent will amaze you.

With yet another stunning performance released on DVD, I find myself again reviewing one of their sterling effortless efforts. This time around I want to comment on their repertoire which is far from being a classical standard repertoire of any sort. When I was the age of the youngest brother, I was very interested in learning to play the piano compositions of Aaron Copland and Charles Ives. My college professors thought that I should not waste my spirit on these unimportant works and that I should spend more time working on pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and Mozart. When I looked at what the Browns are working on and how they choose to perform the pieces they play so well, I began to realize that someone very near and dear had probably told them to "Go for it. Follow your bliss. Work on what really appeals to you and run with it." I am particularly interested in Melody's approach to the two Gargoyles compositions which she plays with youthful exuberance. I noticed that same youthful exuberance in her rendition of Debussy's L'Isle Joyeux on the first album, an exuberance which I have found lacking in performances of this work rendered by older, more conservative pianists. And all the Browns are the same with regard to this. Whether performing separately or together, their repertoire allows them to show their talent in the best possible light. And there will be time for the more conventional composers later. For now I say to them, "Go for it. Don't hold back." And then just sit back and enjoy the show.
