The Five Browns

I find it absolutely ridiculous that one thinks that the list of tracks could have been more imaginative. A great example of an imaginative work on the CD is L'Isle Joyeuse, an impressionistic piece that is evokes thought in the mind when executed well. Another imaginative piece by Ravel entitled La Valse. That is a truly groundbreaking work, known for its strange harmonies. It was a truly revolutionary piece when it was composed. I honestly do not understand how the track list could have been better. Ravel, Debussy, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Grieg, Bowen, Bernstein... It couldn't have had any more variety. It covers the Romantic and Contemporary eras of piano repertoire very well and shows all of the different kinds of music that was composed during the time. Yes, it only includes Romantic and Contemporary because those are more virtuosic than most classical and baroque pieces, with the exception of a few of the large scale Beethoven sonatas.
It is a wonderful CD. Not every single piece is recognizable (The Rachmaninov pieces, for example, are not recognizable to the general public). Great musicians playing some very treacherously difficult works. Age is not even a factor with this CD. Any age can listen as long as they have a large enough attention span.
