Bernstein was the king of mid-century American classical music. I’m (barely) old enough to remember these:

Brilliant. Even trying to play two triangles synchronized at that tempo is frightening, and then doing it in that situation, counted in by a conductor (of his statue)...
Playing triangle in an orchestra is way more difficult than people think. It's so exposed and absolute. Plus you can't just hit a triangle anywhere and have it sound good. It takes finesse.

Adding a 2nd triangle only makes it much harder.
