Notes & Reviews:

The 5 Browns are a revolutionary force in classical music and an ongoing global phenomenon since the release of their first album. The centerpiece of the album is a performance of The Rite of Spring, recorded live on May 29, 2013 - 100 years to the day from its original premiere in Paris. The album also features Greg Anderson's five-piano arrangements of Holst's The Planets, and Danse macabre by Saint-Saëns. The Rite of Spring was recorded live by Grammy-Award winning producer Adam Abeshouse at the new Arthur Zankel Music Center at Skidmore College.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
I am quite impressed with Jeffrey Shumway's setting of The Rite of Spring and also realize that he had a great starting point, given Stravinsky's own piano 4-hands arrangement. Ten years of playing together obviously has its advantages. It is colorful, complex, and exciting. The Holst is a three movement suite - 'Mars', 'Neptune', and 'Jupiter' from The Planets. I read a review that said "thunderous applause followed a thunderous performance of the Danse Macabre".
