Sergio Cervetti http://wrti.org en Songs With and Without Words http://wrti.org/post/songs-and-without-words <p>Singing can be vocal or instrumental on <strong>Now Is the Time, Saturday, June 7th at 9 pm</strong> at wrti.org and WRTI-HD2. A tribute to a family, carved in cemetery marble, is the choral <em>Notturno in Weiss</em> (Nocturne in White) by Robert Moran. Joseph Hallman's <em>Three Poems of Jessica Hornik</em>&nbsp;uses voice with an expanded chamber ensemble, while Anthony Iannaccone selects a solo piano for his <em>Song without Words</em>.<br /><br />An Uruguayan legend or <em>Leyenda</em> comes from Sergio Cervetti for voice and orchestra, and from her ten-year-old daughter's poem about a Cape Cod berry-picking excursion, Elena Ruehr creates the all-instrumental <em>Blackberries</em>.<br /> Fri, 06 Jun 2014 14:12:19 +0000 Kile Smith 7386 at http://wrti.org Songs With and Without Words Rumors on Now Is the Time http://wrti.org/post/rumors-now-time <p>There are journeys and rumors of journeys on <strong>Now Is the Time, Sunday, October 13th at 10 pm</strong>. Harold Meltzer&#39;s <em>Rumors</em> is for one flutist and four flutes: piccolo, C flute, alto, and bass. He envisions a drum set, the breathing of conspiracies (<em>con spirare</em>, to breathe together), and an old man on a bench in Italy trying to remember a children&#39;s song.<br /><br />Sergio Cervetti pictures Peru&#39;s desert drawings in <em>Nazca</em> for string orchestra. Seen from the air, they could be monkeys, spiders, hummingbirds, or extraterrestrials, but whatever they are, the music is rich and inviting. As is <em>Elegant Journey with Stopping Points of Interest</em>, using the drawn, or graphic, notation that Robert Moran was employing in the &rsquo;60s. He revised this for solo organ, and we hear the European premiere from 2009.<br /> Sun, 13 Oct 2013 01:51:17 +0000 Kile Smith 6573 at http://wrti.org Rumors on Now Is the Time Contemporary Composer Sergio Cervetti http://wrti.org/post/contemporary-composer-sergio-cervetti <p>Join Jill for a fascinating interview with Sergio Cervetti - a highly accomplished composer and teacher who enlightens the ear with diversified sounds that are beautiful and invigorating.
