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.
