"Brendel’s most significant independent monograph is his Geschichte der Musik, as testified by its numerous editions up to 1906. It differs from most histories written up to that time in the emphasis given to the recent past and even the present; this reflects the author’s principal vocation as journalist and critic rather than historian." Thomas S. Grey in Grove Music Online. Item #23598
