Musical Opinion has described him as "potentially one of the most significant pianists of his generation", and The Oregonian wrote that Brownell "impresses as much with his mind as with his hands... the anti-Lang Lang." Brownell won 2nd Prize ex aequo at the 2002 International J. S. Bach Competition in Leipzig, making him the first American pianist to have ever won a prize in the history of the competition. He also won 1st Prize at the 2005 J.N. Hummel Competition in Bratislava, has since achieved widespread recognition as "one of the foremost Hummel interpreters of our time" (Hudobny Zivot).
