For Tristan, I would like us to make a chart of the form of the Prelude; we will start it today in class. For Wednesday, please read the introductory essays in Robert Bailey's critical edition, up to page 48, and if you have a chance, get started on Bailey's analysis, pages 113-146. There is some good stuff here on third relations, similar to Cohn's hexatonic article. I'll ask you to turn in your form chart of the Prelude on Friday.
