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.

Due to the current Stage 4 restrictions here in Melbourne, our second live-streamed recital from Glenfern with pianists Darryl Coote and Robert Chamberlain, scheduled for Sunday August 30 at 6.30pm, has been postponed. Once Stage 4 restrictions are lifted (hopefully around mid-September) we will reschedule this joint recital, which features solo piano music from the French Baroque, works by Viennese Classical and German Romantic composers as well as compositions by Australian composers Arthur Benjamin and Peter Sculthorpe.

Due to the pandemic, we have decided not to run a Spring Piano School in 2020. This program normally takes place at the National Trust historic house Glenfern, in East St Kilda, where piano students currently at Primary or Secondary school and aged 8 to 18 years enjoy a program of piano classes, workshops and individual lessons with teaching staff that include experienced pianists and teachers from the Team plus special guests.
Due to the corona virus situation, the final two recitals in our 2020 series must, unfortunately, be postponed:
Our hope is to reschedule these events to dates after the corona-virus pandemic has passed. For supporters who have already purchased tickets for these concerts please click here for an earlier email which explains the options for a refund, for credit to future events or for full or partial donation.
Do keep an eye on this website - we hope to hold two more live-streamed recitals from Glenfern once the lifting of restrictions allows this to happen, hopefully in October/November!
