Etymology: [It., fr. L. magister. See Master.]
Maestro is a title of extreme respect given to a master musician. The term is most commonly used in the context of Western classical music and opera. This is associated with the ubiquitous use of Italian vocabulary for classical music terms. The title of maestro may be bestowed upon composers, performers, impresarios, music directors, conductors and music teachers. In the Italian opera world, the term is not only used for the conductor, but also for musicians who act as répétiteurs and assistant conductors during performances. Even the prompter can be referred to by this title. There are similar concepts in many other cultures of the world; for example, a traditional term of respect for a master of Persian traditional music is the Persian word ostâd.
