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.

The Rigg Bequest Classic Music in Historic Venues series for 2023 - 2024 continues into the first half of 2024 with recitals at St Kilda Presbyterian Church (Alma Road, St Kilda), Como House and Garden, and Labassa mansion (Manor Grove, Caulfield North). Full details of these events and concerts in other venues, coming soon!

At Glenfern, the Team partners 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.

In 2024 we will range wider afield, to other historic venues with wonderful guest artists and attractive programs. More about these recitals in the upcoming events sidebar soon!

Upcoming Events

Rigg Bequest Classic Music 2023 - 2024: Concert 5

Ludwig Live at Labassa!

A unique double recital in the National Trust’s lavish 19th century mansion Labassa. Experience the opulent architectural features and impressive interiors of Labassa as you enjoy the music of Beethoven (and others!) in two contrasting 40 - 45 minute recitals in one afternoon!

Soprano Judith Dodsworth, horn player Roman Ponomariov, and pianist Robert Chamberlain perform Beethoven’s Horn Sonata in F Op. 17, Beethoven’s song-cycle An die ferne Geliebte ("To the distant beloved") Op. 98, which is rarely heard with female voice, as well as trios by Schubert and Flanders & Swann (arr.) in the Music Room. While violinist Yi Wang and pianist Darryl Coote perform Beethoven’s mighty Sonata in A major, Op 47 (Kreuzer) in the Reception Room.

Each recital will be performed twice; after interval the audience will swap rooms to hear their second recital. Both rooms are at opposite corners of the ground floor, separated by doors and the entrance hall, so each audience will not be disturbed by sound from the other recital!

With strictly limited seating, our previous Rigg Bequest double-recital at Labassa sold out early, so book soon for Ludwig Live at Labassa! Read more here or download the concert flyer here.
