Thomas 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, 48 Hours (for Piano Quintet, Trumpet and Recorded Sound), from the Collective by Tullis Rennie. This newly commissioned piece will be a direct creative response to the act of working on the Adès piece, also focus on the performers doing so.
