Praise
"...an elegy for a composer whose phenomenal public success could never divert him from a life of deliberate loneliness."
"Initially, perhaps Brahms might have sought a hiding-place from Swafford's vast comprehensiveness, but he would surely in the end have been persuaded to acknowledge with delight the honour done him by this handsomest of tributes."
"Swafford's study, clearly a labor of profound affection, is a model biography: eloquent, clear-sighted and often moving."
