Dear list members,

I would be interested in hearing from any list members who encountered 
David Lewin's 1974 essay on Schubert's Morgengruss, either in one of 
Lewin's graduate courses, or through  informal channels of circulation. 
This request is in connection with a book that David Schwarz and I are 
co-editing, under contract at the Oxford University Press. The book 
publishes the essay for the first time, and seeks to contextualize it 
from various perspectives.

One of those perspectives involves the essay's reception. Any 
information or testimony that you can provide, about  any of the 
following, would be greatly appreciated, and duly acknowledged:  1) how 
Lewin used the essay in his courses, and what sorts of responses it 
elicited, 2) any use of the essay in other teaching situations by other 
theorists, 3) any references to the essay in publications, (aside from 
Lewin's own later writings, and those of Fred Lerdahl), 4) anything else 
that might be relevant to our project.

You may respond to me at richard.cohn at yale.edu, or to David Schwarz at 
David.Schwarz at unt.edu

Many thanks to all in advance.

--Rick Cohn
