“Editor’s Corner – March 2014 – Twin Passions,” a review of Orfeo by David Olds, The WholeNote, February 26, 2014.
Powers is a master at describing and giving context to the examples of great music he chooses to include, and his insights are enlightening. … As always, Powers’ blending of fact and fiction keeps us on the edge of our seats. Orfeo the novel, and by extension its complex musical worlds – real and imagined – provided one of the most satisfying literary adventures I’ve had in a long time. I highly recommend it.
