MEDIA REVIEWS
For the specialist and non-specialist, poet and musician, common reader and listener, Lowenberg has managed to create a book that never ceases to be useful on one level and to charm the user reader on another...Importantly, Lowenberg has invited brief personal composer commentaries, quoting letters [showing] how each composer succumbed to the Dickinson magic. * Emily Dickinson International Society *
Perhaps its greatest contribution is permitting the general Dickinson scholar to pursue the theme of how music may have influenced the great poet's work. * CHOICE *
