Album Notes
"If Not Now... Chamber Music of Timothy Brown" was a self-presented concert which took place on Tuesday, April 24th, 2018 in the beautiful Saint Peter's Church in New York.

No longer pretending - at age 55 - to be among the many "emerging" composers out there. Tim decided it was simply time to get this music performed. Most of it had previously been heard by few... or none at all.

In her article on "If Not Now?" critic Jean Ballard Terepka wrote:

"All of [the works] were substantive and exciting, presented by musicians who clearly enjoyed their material. In the bright, clear, clean space of St. Peter’s Church, the atmosphere of the concert was informal and congenial. Brown indicated in his program notes that he hoped the event would be “like a house concert among friends.” Happily, it was.

Brown writes expressively, easily conjuring up pictures and tableaux vivants, stories and vignettes. His compositions are intelligent and urbane, confidant and conceptually rich; sad wisdom and ruefully observant wit both flourish in Brown’s music, equal partners in the composer’s analysis of the world whose vagaries inspire and intrigue him."
