Bolcom's Dedication premiered by ROCO Chamber Orchestra, video posted

Dedication for chamber orchestra by William Bolcom was written in 2021-2022, especially for the ROCO Chamber Orchestra. The commission was the result of a meeting between Alecia Lawyer and the composer at a Great American Songbook concert, hosted by Arthur and Shelley Gottschalk. 

Dedication is a concise but dramatic work in three parts, determined by tempo and motif. Dedication is orchestrated by Bolcom's former student Edmund Cionek. Delyana Lazarova conducted the premiere on November 12, 2022.
