The program headlines with Dutch mastermind Louis Andriessen’s "Dubbelspoor," which translates to “double track.” Scored for celeste, piano, glockenspiel and harpsichord, the piece contemplates the phenomenology of refracted views from two trains passing each other as they travel in opposite directions.
