Abstract/Description: Ben Van Dijk is an active performer in The Netherlands in several professional ensembles, and is also on faculty at the Amsterdam Conservatory as one of seven classical trombone professors. The list of works composed for Ben has grown to more than twenty-five, and more are still being written. Recent years have witnessed Ben Van Dijk’s popularity growing through appearances at international venues, and this has continued to encourage the composition of music for him. A helpful method of expounding further on the repertoire composed for Ben is through the medium of lecture recitals. The research for these recitals was conducted primarily through email and telephone conversations with the composers and Ben Van Dijk, and yielded circumstantial and anecdotal information regarding the pieces of music. The composers’ and Ben’s websites were also helpful resources in learning about their lives and careers. The result of this research was two public lecture recitals. The first gave an overview of every work that had been written for Van Dijk at the time, and the second recital focused on just one piece of music, Canticles for Bass Trombone.
