Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

James Brawn began his career with an Australian debut in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 25. Since then he has enjoyed an international career as a soloist, chamber musician, and pedagogue. This is the second volume of his James Brawn in Recital series.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
These recordings were taken down on five different dates in Potton Hall, Suffolk, United Kingdom. 13 different composers are represented so there is plenty of variety to satisfy most listeners and to show what the pianist can do. The brevity of the selections shows a willingness to build a program almost entirely on popular encores. As reluctant as I am to say, it actually works.

I did find myself wishing that Brawn had scheduled some more extended musical essays. There is some extremely fine pianism here, and that is always worthy of attention.

Opening with two well known Scarlatti sonatas (K 159+380) Brawn uses limited pedal and plays detache much of the time. There is much spirit and crisp control of embellishment. Five preludes from Bach's Well Tempered Clavier I draw from the most popular among them.

Mozart is represented by the 'Rondo all Turca' from Sonata 11 and the Fantasy K 397. Once again Brawn is right on target and plays without condescending or vulgarizing or overemphasizing their most attractive exteriors. The Fantasy, in particular, is about as good as it gets.

Beethoven's Fur Elise and two very popular Schubert pieces continue to delight, and several Chopin Etudes attest to the pianist's formidable technique. An unusual surprise is Chopin's little known Prelude Op. 45 in Csharp minor. Liszt, Brahms, Grieg, and Scriabin follow; but with Rachmaninoff we have a grouping of five Preludes (yes, the C-sharp minor is here), all impressively performed.

Closing with Gershwin's 'I Got Rhythm' in a transcription by Jon Kimura Parker leaves us in a thoroughly upbeat mood and you can't beat that in today's world. The recording is a good one, and there are notes for all of the selections.
