ICE and the amazing French new-music group L'itinéraire investigate what the Spectralism movement has to teach composers today.  In a program featuring recent pieces and a new commission from Christopher Trapani, both ensembles honor the tradition of Spectralism with a bi-continental, virtuosic perspective that opens doors of creative collaboration.
