"A major scholarly structure of which not only [William S. Newman] but all of American musicology can be proud of. . . . It will be permanently indispensable to teachers, performers, libraries, and students. It is unique and epochmaking." —Jan LaRue, Musical Quarterly"Newman is perhaps uniquely equipped, if not positively fated, to produce a thorough history of the sonata." —Eugene Helm, Notes"The thoroughness with which Newman has approached his research problem reveals a degree of dedication which has made all of us the grateful benefactors of a definitive volume filled with interesting and valuable information, bibliographical, statistical. historical, and descriptive." —Alice Mitchell, Piano Quarterly
