"Engagingly written and handsomely illustrated... The Soul of the Journey reminds us that two of the seminal German composers of the 1830s and 1840s were "serious" tourists who brought back from their travels in Scotland and Italy not only visual reminiscences but inspiration for several of their most significant compositions."
R. LARRY TODD, Duke University, author of Mendelssohn: A Life in Music and
Fanny Hensel: The Other Mendelssohn

"The siblings' personalities come bowling out of the pages... Fanny's intelligence, humour and warmth won't entirely surprise those who admire her music."
Jessica Duchen, BBC Music Magazine.
