48 HOURS – ADÈS/RENNIE

22nd MAY 2020

CITY UNIVERSITY, LONDON

*To help us bring this project to life, we have launched a Crowdfunder – sponsor an hour – please support us if you can!*

Vonnegut Collective  are very excited to bring to you 48 Hours – Adès/RennieThomas Adès’ ‘Piano Quintet’ (2001) and world premier of Tullis Rennie’s brand new commission by VC.

Adès’ ‘Piano Quintet’ is notorious for taking 48 hours to rehearse and perfect, due to its complexity and nuance. This aspect of the piece was inspiration to create a new commission for  Rennie, which will be composed for piano quintet, trumpet and with recorded sound. This piece will be a direct creative response to the act of working on the Adès piece, also focusing on the performers doing so.

Our first performance of this will be on 22nd May at City University, London. Time TBC. Keep an eye out here for more details to make sure you don’t miss it!

We will be launching our first album with these works, and bringing it to you with our Living-Room Listens in Autumn 2020.
