Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att få en inblick i hur pianot används inom den svenska folkmusiken. Bakgrundskapitlet handlar om folkmusikgruppernas och instrumenteringens utveckling inom svensk folkmusik. Jag har intervjuat tre aktiva folkmusikpianister och lyssnat på och analyserat deras spel. Det följer även med en cd-skiva med ljudexempel från intervjutillfällena. Vi pratade om karaktärsdrag som de lyfter fram i spelet, om deras inställning till folkmusiktraditionen, pianots möjligheter och begränsningar samt vilken roll pianot har i den svenska folkmusiken. Mina slutsatser är att pianot har flera roller i ett samspel med andra musiker. Pianisten kan spela melodi, rytmik, harmonik och även alltihop samtidigt. Pianot fungerar väldigt bra som soloinstrument men också som ett samspelsinstrument. Vad som gör att pianots plats i folkmusiktraditionen är väldigt liten är bland annat dess opraktiska storlek. Jag har också kommit fram till att pianot tillför en ny klang, ett nytt sound till svensk folkmusik.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to acquire a glimpse of how the piano is used in Swedish folk music. The background chapter deals with folk music groups and the development of instrumentation in Swedish folk music. I have interviewed three active folk music pianists, listened to and analyzed their playing style. There is also a CD with music examples from the interview sessions. We discussed the characteristics of their own playing, their attitudes to folk music tradition, the piano's possibilities and limitations, and the role of the piano in Swedish folk music. My conclusion is that the piano functions on several levels while interacting with other musicians. Pianists can play melody, rhythm, harmony, and all of this simultaneously. The piano works very well as a solo instrument, yet also as an ensemble instrument. The small role of the piano in Swedish folk music may be due to its impractical size. I have also discovered that the piano contributes to a new sound to Swedish folk music.
