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.

Schirmer collections offer excellent, reasonably-priced, editions of classical music and this selection of Mendelssohn's fine Lieder Ohne Woerter includes many of the most popular pieces written for the piano. Many are playable by intermediate pianists, with the rest being more advanced, but all are wonderful. I recommend this book to all pianists.

I have been working from the Schirmer text for some time now, and think that it offers an excellent coverage of Songs without Words. All of the essential Songs are included, although this is not the absolute complete collection. The pieces are clearly laid out and easily to understand. The only real drawback is the lack of metronome times.
