Cellist Cicely Parnas presented the world premier of Bruce Craig Roter's "Sonatine for Unaccompanied Cello" at the Hudson Opera House on Sunday, February 15, 2009. This piece was written in 1997 for Nathaniel Rosen, but for various reasons had never been performed. Dr. Roter describes the Sonatine as a "work ... in three movements and brings to the forefront the cello's full potential for registral effects, timbral nuance, virtuosic display and lyrical expression combining these elements in a work that balances both flash and substance."
