Abstract

This paper highlights Larry Sitsky's reinterpretation and revitalisation of Ferruccio Busoni's esoteric tradition - Junge Klassizität, or Young Classicality. This, the Busoni-
Sitsky esoteric tradition, is rooted in the notion of a priesthood of composers, whose worksserve to illuminate the mystic path for those who follow. This paper deciphers the allegorical content of Sitsky’s The Golem with a view to casting new light on this tradition and its
continuing significance in modern composition.
