ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christine was born in Frankfurt, Germany but raised in Colorado. She discovered her talent for the piano early at age three, but did not pursue a career in music, graduating from the University of CO in Business. School years were spent accompanying music and vocal groups, studying the piano and creating her own arrangements of her favorite songs. The piano remained a gratifying hobby.

After the untimely loss of her mother, Christine immersed herself in her music. She then began composing, releasing her heartfelt emotions and inspiring her listeners. In 1991 she debuted on Sugo Record's solo piano compilation of "four of the most gifted pianists in the U.S.", titled "Piano Portraits", and later "Summer Stories". These compositions are also featured on Muzak Channels.

Christine continues to compose and record her piano compositions, recently adding instrumental arrangements to her music. "Playing the piano is such an emotional release and reflection of life's experiences and feelings, and has always been an extremely gratifying way to express myself, often an escape. Family and friends have encouraged me to share my music. I feel so fortunate to have their support, which enables me to pursue my dream." (Christine)

Relaxing Christmas Music
“Christmas On My Mind” is a charming collection of ten traditional songs and medleys and three original compositions played and orchestrated on piano and keyboards by Christine Brown. Designed to create a warm, relaxing holiday atmosphere, the pace of all of the pieces is leisurely and peaceful. I especially like Christine’s arrangement of “Carol of the Bells,” which is often a high-energy piece. Her arrangement is much more tranquil than some of the versions I’ve heard - very beautiful. I also really like her pairing of “Away in a Manger” and “Silent Night” as a medley. Both have very simple, heartfelt melodies, and Brown gives them a gentle grace. “Christmas Wish” is one of the original pieces, and has a sweet, childlike sense of wonder and innocence - another highlight. The medley of “O Christmas Tree” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” has a gentle poignance that is a little different treatment of these two Christmas classics - I like it! “Snow Angel” is another original piece, and is delicate and shimmering with flute highlights in the background. I also like the pairing of “What Child Is This” and “We Three Kings.” The two minor-key pieces work well together, and Brown’s arrangement has an elegant simplicity that emphasizes the melodies. The third original piece, “Magic In the Air,” sparkles with anticipation and quiet joy - another beauty.

“Christmas On My Mind” is a lovely CD to unwind with or to have playing while decorating and wrapping gifts - or any number of other holiday activities where seasonal music adds to the experience. Enjoy!
