I've always liked Schirmer music editions because their layout is always nice and easy to read. However, one reviewer mentioned that this volume is not the absolute complete collection of Songs Without Words. So I compared it with Complete Songs without Words for Piano (Dover Music for Piano) and Schirmer in fact has 49 songs. Dover ("Complete") only has 48. The 49th song from Schirmer's is the Venetian Boat Song published posthumously. I chose this book over the Dover edition because apart from the notes being bigger, the editor added some helpful fingerings here and there as well as pedal marks. I am not concert pianist caliber so I could definitely benefit from a little editorializing. The Dover book was purely notes from start to finish and contains more music in a page so it's 40 pages less than Schirmers. For my needs and skill level, this book is just perfect.

I always like the layout and look of the Schirmer editions, but I ended up returning this one in favor of an urtext edition because it was so heavily edited. It seemed that nearly every measure had some editorital addition, and while I don't mind a little bit of commentary to clear up a phrasing or dynamic issue, this was really over the top.

There is something for everyone in these compositions. Mendelssohn was quite a genius. Each composition is definitely a song that doesn't need any words to set a mood and allows the musician to express that mood only with the music. There are different levels of technical ability in each song - which means there is something in these pieces for everyone - from intermediate to advanced.

I have found that listeners who are not fans of classical music will enjoy listening to these compositions because they are entertaining - more like popular music than classics. And extensive musical knowledge is not needed to appreciate them.
