Three of the foremost string players on the CMS roster—violinist Arnaud Sussmann, violist Paul Neubauer and CMS Co-Artistic Director, cellist David Finckel—show-case extraordinary works for string trio, a genre considered by connoisseurs even more demanding for performers than the string quartet.

The 5 Browns are delivering on their dream to wake up classical music by introducing it to the widest, largest and most excited audience they can find. Whether performing individually or together in various combinations from duo to complex five-piano arrangements, The 5 Browns reveal a deep connection to the intent of their material while bringing a fresh energy and dynamic character to the color and tonal spectrum of their sound.

This is an extraordinary piano program with FIVE Steinway concert grands on stage. A solo, two duets, two full ensemble pieces. These five siblings are not only a compelling and attractive musical ensemble—each is Juilliard-trained and they are Steinway artists—but they’re actively involved in advocacy, and are the subjects of a pending documentary film.
