Description:
Program note (English): Dubbelspoor was originally written as an hour-long dance piece, choreographed by Beppie Blankert, and involving spoken texts by Samuel Beckett (Texts for Nothing). In the original performance the audience is seated in front of a mirror in which they can see the reflection of a dancer. This dancer performs on a stage behind the audience and is soon joined by a second dancer, also visible in the mirror but not on the same platform. Gradually the perception of the space alters as the audience realises that this second dancer is performing on the other side of the mirror, which is also functioning as a window: "the music is about mirroring". A harpsichord solo is presented, doubled (mirrored) and extended by the piano, then again doubled by glockenspiel and celesta. Regular use is made of "shadow melodies", where some notes sound more clearly because a nearby note drops away. Dubbelspoor was revised as a concert piece in 1994. - LOUIS ANDRIESSEN
