Notes & Reviews:

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.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Ryan Brown , Deondra Brown, Melody Brown, Gregory Brown (piano).

Recording information: Right Track Studio A509, New York, NY.

The 5 Browns are, appropriately enough, five siblings named Brown. All are photogenic 20-somethings, but that's where the crossover appeal ends. Far from genre-bending, pop-friendly pinups, the Brown brothers and sisters (all of whom are pianists) play legitimate classical music. NO BOUNDARIES contains unique, multi-piano arrangements of familiar pieces like Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" and Stravinsky's "Firebird," all played sharply and precisely, with no aesthetic concessions whatsoever.
