Let me tell you a little about Beleura, a theatre of the past…

Beleura was built on the Mornington Peninsula in 1863 by Scottish immigrant James Butchart. Its final owner was the composer John Tallis who bequeathed Beleura to the people of Victoria as a memorial to his late father, Sir George Tallis, the well-known theatre entrepreneur and head of J.C. Williamson Ltd.

Today Beleura House & Garden is a place where people are welcomed, where talented young musicians are encouraged and where vignettes of the past offer an insight into the lives of previous generations. The house and its splendid grounds, interiors and archival material reflect the life and legacy of the Tallis family. A small collection of work by ceramic artist, Klytie Pate was part of this legacy and has since expanded to become the Klytie Pate Treasury. An Automobile Museum opened in 2018 and a programme of highly-regarded recitals, guided tours and cultural events is available to view here…

World Premiere: Stuart and Sons, Bach, Griffiths

“Rare View” is the finest body of work yet from Australian/New Zealand modernist composer Alan Griffiths. Exploring his 27 years of unique compositional style and brilliant, imaginative lyricism. Piano virtuoso Nicholas Young will be performing works from Rare View accompanied by special guests, the gifted cellist George Yang and Polish concert violinist Dominik Przywara. This wonderful event will be the world premiere of the new Stuart and Sons 108 key 9 octave concert grand piano. The culmination of Wayne Stuart’s many decades of craftsmanship and ground breaking design. This piano is the only one of its kind in the world. To commemorate this auspicious event Nicholas Young will be performing Bach’s ‘Gigue’ finale from his rarely heard Sonata in A minor BWV 965. The sonority and beautiful craftsmanship of this magnificent piano could only be captured thanks to Sony’s new High Res series of professional microphones and cameras.
