Fred A. Reed’s English version of Hans-Jürgen Greif’s Orfeo is a well-orchestrated masterpiece. His elegant translation captures the unusual voice of this harmonious work. Reed beautifully brings to life the Italian piano teacher (La Signora), the
narrator (Weber) and the intriguing castrato, Orfeo.
