ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Timeless" is Christine's 14th album, the much anticipated sequel to her "Seamless" album, featuring unique fusions of pop/rock songs and classical music. Christine Brown is a distinguished Kawai Piano Artist and award-winning composer of contemporary classical solo piano. Christine’s music is a unique blend of new age, contemporary and classical sounds. With her graceful, elegant touch, Christine paints a colorful landscape with thoughtful musical interpretations of life's emotions and experiences. Since the young age of three, she has been fascinated by the piano. Christine's childhood classical training is evident in her melodic and thematic compositions, while rich harmonies reflect her background in accompanying various choral groups. From Chopin to Joplin, her influences were varied and many, and she also enjoyed creating her own arrangements of popular songs. While attending the University of Colorado, Christine was inspired by George Winston's new age genre of solo piano, yet for many years the piano remained only a hobby. Christine rediscovered her passion for the piano, immersing herself in her music after the loss of her mother in 1990. She began composing, using the piano to voice her emotions, releasing heartfelt compositions that captured listeners.


Christine has released 13 CDs, including her original works, "a mixture of passion, exceptional playing chops and an abundance of grace consistently puts her music in a category of its own. . . the pieces express a wide range of emotions and experiences with depth, sincerity and an elegant touch." MainlyPiano.com. Her original music on “Souvenirs" (2014) won Best Solo Piano Album of the Year by Whisperings Solo Piano Radio. Christine’s unique arrangements of holiday, pop/rock and children’s music have earned numerous awards. “A Classic Christmas II” was awarded Best Holiday Album of 2018 by SoloPiano.com. “Seamless” (2016), a creative mashup collection, was awarded SoloPiano.com's Pop/Rock Piano Album of the Year 2016 a unique fusion of popular cover songs and classical and new age pieces, a sophisticated and seamless musical tapestry with clever medleys of timeless melodies. Original albums, ”Ascend” (2017), “The Wishing Well" (2011) and "Promise" ( 2009), were also nominated for Piano Album of the Year. Reviewers have noted Christine’s music as “so stunning and full flowing, with wonderfully crafted compositions and magical and emotive performances. Her care and attention to detail while creating such incredibly powerful and moving pieces will not go unnoticed.”


Christine’s style of playing has a unique classical influence with a new age sensitivity that evokes strong emotions. Inspired by her life experiences and emotions, Christine creates captivating music that tells a story, with depth and sincerity. Fans write, "Her music is vibrant, colorful and full of life. Skilled at the art of blending chords and note progressions into beautiful aural tapestries, her emotions come through her music ... and through her music she is able to reach out and touch the hearts of millions of appreciative piano music fans." Christine currently resides in San Diego, California.

From MainlyPiano
"Timeless" is pianist/composer Christine Brown’s fourth collection of solo piano “mash-ups” (medleys, actually!) that combine favorite pop (or Christmas) tunes with well-known classical pieces. The first of these was "A Classic Christmas" (2012) followed by "Seamless" (2016) and "A Classic Christmas II" (2018). Christine is especially clever at how she makes seemingly unrelated music fit together and flow “seamlessly.” As usual, her touch is graceful and expressive, and it is easy to hear the love she feels for these songs. The pop songs are an interesting combination of rock classics and much more recent hits, making this an album that should appeal to listeners in a broad age range - especially those who will stream or download their favorites one song at a time rather than buying or downloading the whole album.

"Timeless" begins with Ed Sheeran’s beautiful ballad, “Perfect,” partnered with Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.” You have to listen for “Moonlight,” but it’s there. “Shallow” from the most recent "A Star Is Born" movie is paired with Edith Piaf’s “La Vie en Rose,” a surprising combination that smoothly weaves phrases from each song into an elegant new piece. “Nights In White Satin,” the Moody Blues’ classic, has been a favorite of mine since it was first released, so it’s intriguing to hear how Brown successfully blends it with Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune,” again weaving phrases from the Debussy piece with the pop classic. Brown arranged Freddie Mercury’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” as a heartfelt stand-alone piano solo - a favorite! The Beatles’ “Let It Be” gently and gracefully combines with “Aria” by Johann Kuhna (a piece I was not familiar with). It is said that you can walk around any city in the world and someone will be playing Beethoven’s “Fur Elise.” In another standalone arrangement, Brown takes familiar passages from this iconic piece and makes them her own rather than playing the piece as it was originally written - also a favorite (a huge compliment from a piano teacher!!!). Journey’s “Open Arms” and Debussy’s “Reverie”? Believe it - they work seamlessly together in Brown’s very creative hands! An even more amazing combination is Franz Liszt’s “Liebestraum” and Elton John’s “Your Song,” and they also flow together perfectly. Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” is another old favorite of mine, and it’s paired with “Canon in D.” The Canon isn’t obvious, but small bits of it are interspersed throughout the song. The album liner notes list Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” and Bach’s “Minuet in G,” but I also hear bits of “True Colors,” also by Cyndi Lauper - a very tender, loving combination. “Scarborough Fair” is actually an old folk song that became popular again in the 1960’s and was a big hit for Simon and Garfunkel. Brown’s expressive arrangement is gorgeous and made me fall in love with the song all over again. The album closes with Christina Perri’s hit, “A Thousand Years” and Robert Schumann’s “About Strange Lands and People,” a sweetly wistful ending to an exceptionally good album.
