Product details

Peter Goldsworthy's novel, Maestro (1989), tells of the search, by a teenage boy from Darwin, for information about the past of his elderly Viennese piano teacher, Herr Keller. The story follows the search through to the stack shelves of the Barr-Smith Library at Adelaide University where the chosen text and the events for the library episode take place.
Written for Brett Weymark's animated performance persona and clear diction, The Library gives both singer and pianist opportunities for evocative story-telling through recitative and song styles allowing the singing and telling of the story maximum flexibility and mobility. There are melodic and harmonic motives linking places and
actions of the story within an overall musical arch shape.
Brett Weymark gave the first Australian performance and Kevin Hanrahan the first in the USA.
