Praise

New Yorker
"...an elegy for a composer whose phenomenal public success could never divert him from a life of deliberate loneliness." 04/06/1998

Literary Review
"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." - Jonathan Keates June 1998

Publishers Weekly
"Swafford's study, clearly a labor of profound affection, is a model biography: eloquent, clear-sighted and often moving." 08/18/1997
