Editorial Reviews


"Human beings in general, like Segal in particular, revisit the myth of Orpheus from age to age, revising old meanings and devising new. Those in our age should be grateful to Segal for his preoccupation. One may take issue with particular passages, but who could rival the breadth and depth of the whole score?" -- Classical Views
