for piano quartet
Oxford Contemporary Repertoire Series
This piece, the second written for the Schubert Ensemble, is constructed from a sequence of episodes which gradually expose a central monody. As the title suggests, the music has a nocturnal character. It is constructed in a single movement and is dedicated to the memory of Luciano Berio, with whom Butler studied in the 1980s. Sold as a score and set of parts.
