New York pianist Roger Peltzman’s one-man show, Dedication, recounts his family’s tragic history fleeing the Nazis in war-torn Europe using drama, powerful images, and musical performances of everything from blues to Chopin. Drawn into the story of people he never knew, Peltzman develops a 'relationship' with his uncle, Norbert Stern, the finest pianist in Belgium, until he was murdered in Auschwitz at age 21. A singular tale from the Shoah that is at once extraordinary and relatable, Dedication is also a coming to terms with second-generation survivor trauma and the role of music in helping to manage wounds that will never fully heal.
