The Melbourne-based Team of Pianists are Artists-In-Residence for the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) Ltd. at Glenfern, the National Trust‘s Centre for the Arts and Culture, in East St Kilda. Acclaimed for their artistry and professionalism, Team of Pianists has presented solo and chamber recitals, concerto performances, CDs and broadcasts over many decades and is also committed to encouraging and promoting young musicians through masterclass programmes and concert opportunities. The Team has produced many CDs covering a wide range of music, including a number of exciting, yet rarely recorded works, as well as two innovative videos and various publications on the art of piano playing and musicianship. The Team works closely with the Nationa Trust of Australia (Vic) to present recitals in historic venues in and around Melbourne.

Our 2020 season - please see COVID-19 announcement

At Glenfern, Team partners have established educational programmes such as the annual Spring Piano School for primary and secondary school age students (since 2004), professional development events such as International Teachers‘ Seminars (2009 & 2010) and the Autumn Piano Weekend (2013), as well as presenting masterclasses by Australian and overseas artists. As well as the Colin & Cicely Rigg Bequest Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea concert series, Team of Pianists organises an annual Piano Marathon for pianists of all ages in the Ballroom during late summer.

Upcoming Events

Concert Postponements due to COVID-19

Dear Music-Lovers and Supporters of the Team of Pianists,

Due to the corona virus situation, it is with much regret that at least the first four recitals in our 2020 series will be postponed:

  • Sunday April 19 at 6.30pm - Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea
  • Sunday May 3 at 2.00pm - Barwon Park
  • Sunday May 17 at 6.30pm - Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea
  • Sunday June 21 at 6.30pm - Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea

We are conferring with our musician colleagues and venue partners, in regard to how we might reschedule these events to later dates and thus maintain the performance of great music by great musicians, and/or provide alternative means for our audiences to continue enjoying wonderful chamber music in 2020.

In the near future we will contact directly all those who hold tickets for our 2020 season and further announcements will be made on our website. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
