'Maestro is an extremely evocative, tender and lyrical novel. With its contrasts of colourful new Australia with old Europe, of North with South, of the Wet with the Dry, it is itself a kind of compelling, alternating musical performance. it is a novel where Goldsworthy - award-winning poet and short-story writer - allows himself for the first time to trust fully all of the emotional resources of language, and to explore the whole power of art to beguile as well as entertain.'
