# List of pitch-class sets

(Redirected from List of pitch class sets)

This is a list of pitch-class sets by Forte number.[1] For a list of ordered collections, see: list of tone rows and series.

Sets are listed next to their complements. Inversions are marked "B" (sets not marked "A" or "B" are symmetrical). 10, 11, and 12 are listed as "T", "E", and "C".

In the five instances they differ,[a] the prime forms given are Rahn's (also used by Straus) rather than Forte's, which are given in footnotes.[3][4]

Elliott Carter had earlier (1960–67) produced a numbered listing of pitch class sets, or "chords", as Carter referred to them, for his own use.[5][6] Donald Martino had produced tables of hexachords, tetrachords, trichords, and pentachords for combinatoriality in his article, "The Source Set and its Aggregate Formations" (1961).[7]

## Notes

1. ^ Forte and Rahn both list prime forms as the most left-packed possible version of a set. However, Forte packs from the left and Rahn packs from the right ("making the small numbers smaller," versus making, "the larger numbers ... smaller"[2]).
2. ^ Forte 8-26: [0,1,2,4,5,7,9,T]
3. ^ Forte 7-z18A: [0,1,2,3,5,8,9]
4. ^ Forte 5-20A: [0,1,3,7,8]
5. ^ Forte 7-20A: [0,1,2,4,7,8,9]
