Stucky's Nott urno is an 11-minute evocation of night sounds. Although the work does not use classical forms, its four sections are clearly demarcated. An introduction sets the nocturnal scene with mysterious, fragmentary sounds, culminating in a agitated outcry. In the music that follows, the pianist and saxophonist play freely and independently, creating a dreamy, indistinct texture of lyrical fragments, gradually transformed into more active gestures. The third section is for saxophone alone as in a dream, exploring a variety of incomplete, unrelated thoughts. In the short coda the static, dreamlike atmosphere of the opening is restored. Nott urno was composed in 1981 for saxophonist Mark Alan Taggart and pianist Brian Israel.
