A Musical Flower Garden at Barwon Park on Sunday May 3 at 2.00pm combines the talents of Robert Schubert, Josephine Vains and Robert Chamberlain in a varied and highly contrasted program of chamber music, ranging from the Baroque conversational sensibility of J S Bach, performed on modern instruments, through the Romantic exuberance of Bruch, to the brooding passion and end-of-century energy of the little known Trio Op. 3 by Zemlinsky!
Barwon Park is a magnificent colonial-period mansion at Winchelsea (approx 1 hour 30 minutes drive SW of Melbourne). Enjoy afternoon tea after this concert, plus the chance to view this fascinating house, built by Thomas Austin and his wife Elizabeth - founder of the Austin hospital.
Glenfern, a National Trust Centre for the Arts and Culture in East St Kilda, is a 19th century Gothic mansion in East St Kilda, in Melbourne, where the Team of Pianists are based. Our Glenfern recital on October 11 at 3pm combines the talents of Yi Wang, Justin Beere and Darryl Coote in a program of duos and trios ranging from Mozart through French composers Ravel, Saint-Säens and Milhand to the attrative melodies and catchy rhythms of Khatchaturian.
