We note the death of Robert Bailey, scholar, teacher, lecturer and mentor to many. His studies of Tristan sketches and his critical score of the Prelude and Liebestod are definitive, and his impact on his students enormous. His teaching positions included Princeton, Yale, Eastman, NYU, Tulane, Berkeley and Juilliard. His lecture a few years ago at the Wagner Society of New York on the Wagner Horn was sensational. Missed though he will be, he will be even more fondly celebrated.
