9780773454071: The Esoteric Musical Tradition of Ferruccio Busoni and Its Reinvigoration in the Music of Larry Sitsky: The Operas Doktor Faust and the Golem

This study explores an elite esoteric tradition of music composition which grew out of Ferruccio Busoni's concept of "Junge Klassizitat", or Young Classicality, and is manifested and examined in the two major operas it has generated: Busoni's "Doktor Faust" and Larry Sitsky's "The Golem".

About the Author:

Dr. Judith Crispin is a composer, musicologist and mezzo-soprano. Following doctoral work in Canberra with Larry Sitsky, Dr. Crispin studied in Paris as a composition student of Emmanuel Nunes. She has received a number of academic and artistic awards, including the Nancy Van de Vate International Compositional Prize for Opera, the Harold Allen Memorial Prize for Composition, and an Australian Postgraduate Award. Dr. Crispin is currently a lecturer in composition at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia.

Review:

"We know how important the subject was and is to many creative minds, and so it seems to me the height of absurdity to shy away from it. Therefore I congratulate Dr. Crispin for having the heart to push the study of music in this direction. More courage to her arm and perhaps her book is a signal for future efforts among musicologists." - Dr. Larry Sitsky Emeritus Professor of Composition Australian National University"
