About the album

Since childhood, Michael Brown has been inspired by composers who were also tremendous pianists and it has been his life’s passion to explore both of these disciplines. While the list of musicians who fall into this category is long, three of the greatest composer-pianists include Ludwig Van Beethoven, Felix Mendelssohn, and Leonard Bernstein, whose works are included in this album. Not only did these artists approach music from this dual perspective of a composer and performer, but their compositional craft was undoubtedly influenced by their relationship to the piano. Their music continues to surprise and exhilarate. Also, included are works by Michael Brown.
