"Immaculate Performance"

The young US conductor Brandon Keith Brown gave an exciting, immaculate performance of Mozart's Prague Symphony with the Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester-Berlin. Neues Deutschland 

"Astonishing Flexibility"

this was the best interpretation of a Bruckner Symphony since the time when Andrey Boreyko was the chief conductor of the orchestra [Jenaer Philharmonie]. It was quite astonishing how flexible and secure all the musicians of the orchestra performed under Brandon Keith Brown.--Jena Kultur on Bruckner Symphony No. 6

"Held the strings in his hand"

Conductor Brown held the strings in his hand. Through his anthracite-colored garment, which was closed to the neck, he reminded me of a priest who shows severity, but also ensures that everyone involved receives their deserved recognition.--Sonja Samberger, Nürnberger Zeitung , Nürnberger Symphoniker

"Orchestra really blumes with Brown and Beethoven"

Under the youthfully fresh and agile direction of Brandon Keith Brown the orchestra positively blossomed, above all in Ludwig van Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony. Brown, at the helm of the Philharmonie for the first time, is hailed as a rising star in the conducting firmament. --Elisabeth Höving, Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung , Neue Philharmonie-Westfalen

"Liberation not heard in a longtime"

For quite some time the Neue Philharmonie Westfalen (NPW) has not sounded as liberated as this, played with such refreshing exuberance in a symphonic concert as it did under the baton of the young US guest conductor Brandon Keith Brown. [...] the titanic Beethoven [Symphony No. 8], brought down by Brown from his pedestal to eye level, to rapturous applause.--Bernd Aulich, Recklinghäuser Zeitung, Neue Philharmonie-Westfalen

"Excitement and Dynamism, Depth and feeling"

Here was a young conductor on the podium, who knew how to create their own musical language and breathe with the orchestra. Excitement and dynamism was only made by the American this morning (...) Brandon Keith Brown, declared the audience favorite, got the third prize. Brown always had the greatest potential, his conducting processed depth and feeling as well as the urge to design.--Midou Grossmann Klassik.com, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, 2012 Sir Georg Solti Competition for Conductors
