Holiday Traditions with K104.7

The 5 Browns are all Julliard-trained pianists. They’re also siblings. If that’s not amazing enough, it has been almost fifteen years since Deondra, Desirae, Gregory, Melody and Ryan Brown released their debut album and they still get along.

Their new album, Christmas with The 5 Browns, includes seasonal classical selections by Tchaikovsky (“The Nutcracker”) and Handel (“Messiah”), as well as 20th Century holiday favorites “Carol of the Bells” and “Sleigh Ride.”  Six of the album’s 16 tracks feature all five of the siblings playing simultaneously. It’s impressive to hear and mesmerizing to watch:

Steinway Artists The 5 Browns are five sibling pianists - Deondra, Desirae, Gregory, Melody and Ryan - who are also five Julliard-trained pianists. Here, they perform an enchanting five-piano version of Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride," wondrously arranged by Steinway Artist Greg Anderson, at the New York Steinway Factory.
