12/24    The Music of Sergio Cervetti Sergio Cervetti left his native Uruguay in 1962 to study composition in the United States. From 1972 to 1997 and 2007-08, Cervetti was Master Teacher of Music at Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. Cervetti's works range from the acoustic to the electronic, and deftly blend folk elements, European tradition and minimalist aesthetics. After an early brush with twelve-tone and minimalism, imbuing minimalism with melody, for example, in early works such as Guitar Music (the bottom of the iceberg), Madrigal III and …from the earth…, his current approach is free and flexible. As much of a traditionalist as an innovator, he continues to straddle musical worlds with new works that showcase a post-modern synthesis of techniques from diverse periods as well as his rich South American heritage.
