Amateur pianist and singer
- Wonderful to have such a beautifully printed modern edition of these delightful pieces, out -of - print for so long; particularly thoughtful to have the full score (used by the pianist) of each song on one page opening, by the use of a third pull-out page.
Lovely 'hausmusik' for performance by family and friends.
- Not Beethoven's finest, and he usually wrote in ignorance of the words! And Thomson often provided inferior words he'd commissioned specially, rather than better-known lyrics.
The selection of songs for this volume, drawn from the late 19C edition and from sets never re-published, may well omit one's own particular favourites. But everyone will find things to delight.
