    Bildning och sång: Lunds allmänna sångförening 90 år2014In: Gamla Lund-Nytt, , p. 5Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Texten beskriver hur en manskör som kallade sig Allmänna Sångföreningen uppstod omkring 1890 i Lund. När dess dirigent N.P Norlind plötsligt insjuknade våren 1891 inför viktiga konsertframföranden ryckte hans fästmö, musikdirektören Hanna Hallberg in och räddade med bravur situtationen. Vidare följs körens skiftande öden fram till 1925 då en nystart ledde till bildandet av den manskör som 2015 firar sitt 90-årsjubileum som Lunds Allmänna Sångförening och som nu åter har en kvinnlig dirigent.

    Bror Beckman, b. 10 February 1866 in Kristinehamn, d. 22 July 1929 in Ljungskile. In 1884 he began working in Julius Bagge's music store in Stockholm and studying harmony under Bagge's tuition. Between 1885−90 he studied counterpoint and composition privately under Johan Lindegren. In 1888 he became an insurance clerk with the Fylgia insurance company, a post which he retained for upwards of 20 years, conjointly with music studies, teaching and, later on, composing. His career as a composer was in practice curtailed by his appointment in 1909 as treasurer to the Royal Swedish Academy of Music and, the following year, principal of the Royal Conservatory of Music (as from 1911 with professorial standing).

    Intermediality and the medieval ballad2008In: 38th International Ballad Conference, Cardiff, Wales, 2008Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Intermediality and the Medieval Ballad

    In 2005 a manuscript find containing more than 1,000 documents on the subject of folklore such as ballads, tunes, fairy tales, rhymes and jingles was uncovered at Växjö City Library in Sweden. Out of these, approximately 400 were ballads. The collection has been attributed to George Stephens (1813–1995, British linguist, archaeologist and collector) and Gunnar Hyltén-Cavallius (1818–1889, librarian, theatre manager and collector of folkloristic material). A year after the discovery of the manuscripts, the research programme Intermediality and the Medieval Ballad was launched at Växjö University. In this programme scholars from the fields of musicology, ethnomusicology, literary science, and linguistic methods and theories collaborate. The programme has by now become one of the most vivid research environments for the study of medieval ballads in Scandinavia and involves at present ten scholars in the various fields of research. In January 2008 the first results were presented in the volume En värld för sig själv: Nya studier i medeltida ballader [A world of its own: New studies in medieval ballads], G. Byrman (ed.), Växjö: Växjö University Press.

    In my contribution I will summarize the main results that have been presented so far in the programme. I will also describe the infrastructural project Digitising and publishing of medieval ballads on the web that was started as a project within Intermediality and the Medieval Ballad in January 2008 with funding from the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation. The project aims in the long run to develop a web portal that presents sources of the Scandinavian medieval ballads in a form that will be useful to both scholars and musicians.

    Muntlig och skriftlig tradering av medeltida ballader2008In: 15th Nordic Congress of Musicology: Voicing - Sounding – Visualizing, Norwegian Society of Musicology , 2008, p. 1-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Muntlig och skriftlig tradering av medeltida ballader

    Lundquists Musikhandel i Stockholm utgav 1864 sångboken 108 en- och två-stämmiga choraler, folkvisor m.m …[för] elementar-läroverk och folkskolor. Den innehåller bla texter och melodier till 14 medeltida ballader. Vad innebär det att visor som tidigare främst varit kända i muntlig tradition spreds i massform på detta sätt? Tidigare balladforskningen har främst intresserat sig för den fixering som skedde då medeltida ballader från 1600-talet började spridas genom skillingtryck. Att även skolsångböcker tidigt innehöll ballader har sällan uppmärksammats. Många upptecknare var omedvetna om den konservering av texter och melodier som redan hade skett genom skillingtryck och skolsångböcker. Informanternas balladframföranden, som föreföll ske direkt ur minnet, togs som bevis för att det rörde sig om en muntlig tradition. I mitt inlägg prövar jag om resultaten i den nyaste forskningen kring musik och minneshantering i medeltidens västerländska musikpraxis, som utvecklats av bl a Ann-Marie Busse Berger (Medieval Music and the Art of Memory, 2005), är relevant för balladforskningen. Berger visar övertygande att spridningen av läs- och skrivkunnighet under medeltiden inte innebar att den muntliga kulturen försvann. Nästan alla framföranden av musik skedde långt in i modern tid utan stöd av noter. Minneskonsten hölls istället levande med hjälp av nya tekniker som kunde utvecklas därför att skrivna källor fanns bevarade. Dessa gjorde det möjligt att kontrollera att man mindes rätt. Resultatet blev en minneskonst som memorerade texter och musik exakt. I den muntliga balladkulturen hanterade traditionsbärarna stoffet mycket friare. Förmågan att fritt omskapa och lägga till aktörer och scener uppskattades. Genom att studera alla kända varianter av ett antal ballader utifrån vetskapen om hur en genuin muntlig tradition utvecklas och förändras bör det vara möjligt att säga något om den påverkan som skriftlig dokumentation haft på ballader som tecknats upp under de senaste århundradena.

    From combating to supporting pop music. The paradox of municipal music education in Sweden 1940 to 20002009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From combating to supporting pop music. The paradox of municipal music education in Sweden 1940 to 2000Lindberg, BoelSchool of HumanitiesVäxjö universityVäxjö, SwedenOlofsson, GunnarSchool of Social SciencesVäxjö universityVäxjö, SwedenKeywordsHagstrom's music, combating popular music, Private music education, public music education, hegemonic cultural adaptationIn 1997 Sweden was the third biggest exporter of popular music in the world. This astonishing fact has often been explained as being the result of the large investments in municipal music schools that took place in Sweden from 1940. The explanation holds an interesting paradox. Most municipal music schools began with the aim to teach young people appreciate more valuable music (i.e. classical) than the popular music of the entertainment industry. Around 1940 there was a large debate on the "Dance-floor-misery". Christians and conservatives attacked the public amusements available in abundance, arguing that they led to moral shallowness among the youth. It was especially young people's contact with dance and popular music offered in open-air dance-floors and dance-pavilions that caused most harm. The debate began in 1938 with an official letter to the Government from the bishop of Växjö. It led to the forming of a Royal committee assigned to find ways to decontaminate the unsatisfactory state of the entertainment industry. In Växjö the Church and the municipality joined forces forming a Youth Council. Its main achievement was to start a music school in 1947. During the 1970s it became one of the most successful in Sweden, thanks to its tolerant views on modern genres and instruments used in popular music. By 1980 it had driven a once prosperous music school run by the town's largest music shop out of business. This school ? Hagstrom's music school ? had started in 1944. Its main aim was to meet the demand for education on instruments like accordion, guitar, saxophone, keyboard and drums, instruments used in popular dance-music.The Växjö case elucidates the process that led the once detested popular music to become accepted and fully incorporated into the curricula of the municipal music schools. This process will be linked to the thesis that a hegemonic culture has somehow to adopt prevailing views and tastes among the dominated in order to survive (cf. Gramsci, Williams).
