    August Söderman (1832−1876)2013Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Johan August Söderman, born in Stockholm 17 July 1832. Studied harmony and piano at the Royal Swedish Academy of Music as a teenager. Acquired practical experience as music director for a travelling theatre company in the 1850s and later as choirmaster and second conductor of the Royal Opera from 1860 until his death on 10 February 1876. In his capacity as music director for the theatre he composed a great deal of incidental music for plays, as well as vocal works, such as solo and choral ballads and songs. These pieces proved very popular, especially on account of their purportedly folk–music influences. Söderman was a much lauded composer in Stockholm in the mid–19th century, and despite his short life, his output was considerable and many of his works are still performed to this day.

    Borgerlighetens teater. Om verksamhet, musiker och repertoar på Mindre Teatern i Stockholm 1842-63.2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

      The years around the middle of the nineteenth century were a time of change in Swedish politics, commerce and industry. The press became very influential in the debate, including the issue of the theatre and its role in society.

    With the theories on public opinion and a public sphere, formulated by Jürgen Habermas, as a starting point, three different aspects of the operations of the Mindre Teatern (the Minor Theatre) are discussed in this thesis.

    The first part deals with the theater and its role in society. Liberal demands for freedom of trade, also in the case of the theatre, caused strong criticism against the prevailing royal theatre monopoly. After several years of struggle the monopoly was broken by the establishment of the Mindre Teatern in 1842.

    The second part focuses on the musicians who were active at the theatre, and on the audience. The role of the professional musician in the middle of the nineteenth-century is discussed, and it is pointed out that most of the musicians at this time had to have several jobs of different kinds to earn their living. The relation between the audiences at the Mindre Teatern and the Kungliga Teatern (the Royal Theatre/Royal Opera House) is discussed, and it is noted that there were great similarities between the two audiences.

    Part three deals with the repertoire. Most of the almost 500 performed plays were of foreign origin, above all French. The majority of plays were comedies. The serious plays often had historical plots, and were set in national surroundings. The foreign plays were adapted to suit a Swedish audience. The interest in recognizable settings is noticeable in connection with the productions. The repertoire can be said to have contributed to defining the new middle class identity, an identity which also contained an element of national feeling. Even the music could be used for this purpose. The main part of the music pieces were arrangements, but new compositions, especially instrumental ones, occured to a lesser degree. What kind of play music could be used, was decided according to the customs of different genres. Instrumental pieces, for example, were mostly used in serious plays, whereas songs were much more commonly used in comic ones. The music is analysed with respect to both structural function and its role in creating atmosphere and character.

    Edvard Stjernström’s music theatre in Stockholm and Finland in the 1850s2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the 19th century private theatres were established in Stockholm. They put on a popular repertoire and competed with the Royal theatre for a growing audience. An important theatre director in the middle of the 1800s was Edvard Stjernström. He owned a theatre in Stockholm and also made many tours to other cities in Sweden and Finland. Stjernström and his activities are the focus of this study. What was his role in deploying a repertoire to cities in Sweden and Finland? How did he choose the repertoire and the music? What relation did the plays and the music have to the debate about national identity? These questions will be discussed from a perspective of “public sphere” (Habermas) and national identity, but also from theories of distribution of a common European repertoire. Despite the national connection, the repertoire was to a great extent international. It is an interesting question how the repertoire was spread and a hypothesis is that individuals were of great importance in this respect. Stjernström is an example of such a person.

    For the study it is important to problematize the concept of “opera” and to show the great variety in music dramatic genres and performances, due to different interests and possibilities at different theatres. Light opera, with spoken dialogue was very popular and possible to perform with a smaller orchestra. This kind of repertoire was performed not only at the Royal theatre but also at several theatres in cities around Sweden and by travelling theatre companies.

    The theatre activities of Stjernström will in this article be compared to relevant theatres from other European countries. Not least will his tours to Finland be compared with his activities in Stockholm. The main sources for the study are play texts, music, posters from performances, accounts, and reviews and articles from contemporary papers.

    Opera åt folket!2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    På 1960-talet gick debattens vågor höga kring operan och dess plats i samhället. Radikala debattörer förordade operans nedläggning, samtidigt som musikteatern var mycket populär och drog en storpublik. Dessutom fanns en aktiv kulturpolitik, som såg som sin uppgift att sprida kultur till nya grupper. En viktig institution i det här sammanhanget var Operan i Stockholm, den Kungliga Teatern, som från början instiftats för att sprida glans och värdighet över kungahuset, men nu förväntades bli en konstform som tilltalade alla – en opera för folket. I den radikala debatten blev Stockholmsoperan ensymbol för vad som av vissa uppfattades som en förlegad, borgerlig kultur. I den här studien undersöks hur Stockholmsoperan under 1960-talet agerade för att möta dessa nya krav, med särskilt fokus på hur man arbetade för att få barn- och ungdomspubliken att komma till föreställningarna. I den samtida debatten framfördes krav på en samhällstillvänd repertoar och debattörerna hävdade också att de stora institutionerna måste söka upp publiken i deras miljö, och hellre spela opera i förorten än på den stora scenen mitt i Stockholm. Operan som genre diskuterades också, och krav restes från flera håll på en modernisering av vad som uppfattades som en genre som stagnerat i gamla former. Hur påverkade denna debatt det som gjordes vid den Kungliga Operan vid Gustav Adolfs torg? Vilken repertoar valde man att sätta upp för den unga publiken? Var ville man spela? Verksamheten vid Stockholmsoperan sätts i relation dels till några andra teatrar i Stockholm vid den här tiden, dels till de krav som efterhand formulerades i den alltmer aktiva och styrande kulturpolitiken. Utifrån en analys av utvalda verk ur repertoaren diskuteras också frågor kring utvecklingen av den musikdramatiska genren under efterkrigstiden.

    The grand opera tradition at the Opera in Stockholm2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the middle of the 19th century there were a great interest for operas especially by Meyerbeer at the Opera in Stockholm. Robert le diableLes HuguenotsLe prophète andL’Africaine were performed between 150 and 200 times each from around 1840 to 1890. The interest for Meyerbeer has been treated in previous research, but the basis for this tradition has not been explored in any significant meaning. How come that the Opera in Stockholm relatively fast connected to the European tradition of grand opera? Why was there such an interest in the Stockholm audience for grand opera? This paper discusses the conditions at the Opera in Stockholm during the first half of the 19thcentury, with special regard to questions about the repertoire (for example works by Gluck and Spontini) but also to questions about financial and organisational circumstances. The main purpose is to discuss the tradition of grand opera at Stockholm from early 19th century and onwards.

    Since the establishing of the gustavian opera in 1773 operas by C. W. Gluck had been part of the repertoire. Armide and Iphigénie en Aulide were among the works by Gluck that was played continuously from the 1770s to the 1840s. In the 1820s the opera director Gustaf Lagerbjelke introduced operas by Spontini, like La Vestale andFerdinand Cortez. Lagerbjelke was interested in new ideas about acting, which stressed the role characters feelings and individual acting on stage. The audience valued this new acting style and these operas became important in the development of romantic opera in Stockholm.

    In addition to the interest of the audience it is also important to look at the financial and organisational situation at the Opera, as important conditions for the activities as a whole. The question of financing will be discussed as well as the organisation, for understanding how traditions were communicated between directors, singers and musicians. By linking the interest in the 1850s to the previous interest in operas by for example Gluck and Spontini the intention is to describe the performance history of grand opera during several decades.

    Musik och politik i svenskt 1970-tal: musikspridning, jämlikhet och kommersialism på de kungliga teatrarna och SVT?2017In: Musikforskning idag: Musikhögskolan, Piteå, 12–14 juni 2017, 2017, 26-27 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under 1960- och 70-talen var debatten om kulturfrågor intensiv i Sverige. Beslutet om kulturpolitikens inriktning 1974 fick stor betydelse för kulturlivets organisering under de kommande decennierna. Den nya kulturpolitiken byggde bland annat på idéer om behovet av att sprida kultur jämlikt till alla invånare i Sverige, samt att ”Kulturpolitiken skall motverka kommersialismens negativa verkningar inom kulturområdet” (Kulturutredningen 1995:62). Samtidigt hade svenska grupper inom populärmusiken stora internationella framgångar, med ABBA som det mest framgångsrika och mest kända exemplet. Kulturdebatten blev polariserad, med tydliga motsättningar mellan förespråkare för kulturpolitikens grundläggande värderingar å ena sidan och ”den kommersiella musikens” företrädare å den andra.

    Denna motsättning är fokus för vår studie. Hur påverkades olika institutioner av den nya kulturpolitiken och av de aktuella idéerna i debatten? I denna studie görs en jämförelse mellan några konkreta yttringar inom musiklivet. Exempel ges från de traditionstyngda scenerna Kungliga Operan och Dramaten i Stockholm samt från SVT:s verksamhet, där programmet ”Alternativ festival” från 1975 används som en fallstudie. Förutom utvalda program och föreställningar bygger studien på arkivmaterial från institutionerna. Vi använder en komparativ metod och genomför föreställningsanalys utifrån teatervetenskapliga metoder.

    1970-talets kulturdebatt inom musikens område är till vissa delar beskriven och analyserad i tidigare forskning (se exv. Arvidsson 2008; Thyrén 2009) men en jämförelse mellan institutioner av detta slag har inte gjorts tidigare. Här finns en möjlighet att visa hur kulturlivet i stort påverkades av de nya idéerna och hur både hög- och lågutbildade gavs tillfälle att ta del av detta.

    Writing Composer Biographies in the project Swedish Musical Heritage2016In: Dansk Musikforskning Online, ISSN 1904-237X, E-ISSN 1904-237X, 43-60 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish Musical Heritage is a six-year-long project whose purpose is to make music, that is rarely played, more accessible so that it might gain a new audience. The project is funded by the Swedish Royal Academy of Music. Biographical texts on more than 300 Swedish composers, mainly unknown even for specialists in Swedish music history, provide a background for the use of the musical works, whether for performance or for research. The writing of these biographical texts is the topic of this article – the subject of which more precisely contains discussions around this rather old-fashioned task. The authors of this article are involved in this work in various ways and write from their respective starting points. The conclusion we have reached collectively is that the writing of biographies is of great value; the image of Swedish music history is deep- ened, female composers have become more visible, the musical life outside of Stockholm is described, and the great variety of roles a composer could have becomes clear.
