All-trichord hexachord

In music, the all-trichord hexachord is a unique hexachord that contains all twelve trichords, or from which all twelve possible trichords may be derived. The prime form of this set class is {012478} and its Forte number is 6-Z17. Its complement is 6-Z43 and they share the interval vector of <3,2,2,3,3,2>.

It appears in pieces by Robert Morris and Elliott Carter. Carter uses all-interval twelve-tone sets consisting of all-trichord hexachords in his Symphonia: sum fluxae pretium spei.
