As Artists-in-Residence for the National Trust of Australia (Victoria), the Team of Pianists has created unique opportunities to hear fine Australian and international artists in heritage settings. Audience members relish the special chance to connect the artists, the music and the concert venue with an era in which much of the music was composed.
Rigg Bequest concerts in 2013 will take you east to the Poowong Pioneer Chapel in the rolling hills of South Gippsland, west to the magnificent Barwon Park mansion in Winchelsea past Geelong and back to central Melbourne with two programs at Glenfern, East St Kilda, and a special celebration concert in Melba Hall at the University of Melbourne.
2013 Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea programs range from chamber orchestra to Schubert lieder, from Bach to Ross Edwards, and from young stars shining brightly to artists established on the international stage.

Acclaimed both for high standards of artistry and professionalism, the Melbourne-based Team of Pianists has captivated audiences in Australia and overseas for twenty years. Coupled with unquestioned commitment to the highest artistic performance standards in its many solo and chamber recitals, concerto performances, CDs and broadcasts, the Team is equally committed to promoting young musicians through its many masterclass programmes in metropolitan and regional areas alike.
The Team has produced nine 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 members of the Team are Artists-In-Residence for the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) at Glenfern, the National Trust‘s Centre for the Arts and Culture. Here the Team has established the Glenfern Piano Institute, which has developed innovative programmes including the Spring Piano School for primary and secondary school age students, the International Teachers‘ Seminar, as well as masterclasses by Australian and overseas artists. The four partners are Professor Max Cooke OAM, Robert Chamberlain, Darryl Coote and Rohan Murray.
