Acclaimed for their artistry and professionalism, the Melbourne-based 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 National Trust of Australia (Vic) to present recitals in historic venues in and around Melbourne.
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. The three partners are Darryl Coote, Rohan Murray and Robert Chamberlain, with Professor Max Cooke OAM as Founder and Consultant.
