This guide will be a tremendous boon for the study of Schumann’s songs. I propose a toast to Jon Finson for stepping up to the plate on this important task of writing a new guide to Schumann’s songs in English that will supersede the old Eric Sams book.—Rufus Hallmark, Professor of Music, Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University

What a wealth of information and insight! On every page, Finson tells us things worth knowing. From a lifetime of studying this repertory, he has distilled vast knowledge into what will become, I feel sure, an essential source for a long time to come. —Susan Youens, J. W. Van Gorkom Professor of Music, University of Notre Dame
