Abstract [en]



There is a limited possibility for many of the concert-goers to go behind the stage and follow the work process with putting together a program for the concert season in a concert institution. The purpose of this study is to describe a concert institution's work with developing a concert program for each season. This is done through a presentation of the factors affecting the work. This is a descriptive essay and a case study of the Malmö Symphony Orchestra. Interviews have been made with people directly involved in the work or affected by the outcome of the work process. The results of the survey show that there are many opinions about the choice of repertoire and the program is greatly influenced by the chosen conductors and their preferences. The underlying repertoire ideology is a factor that permeates the work. The ideology and the view of symphony music as public education have to be compromised with the various interests involved in the working process. The survey also shows that the audience is not taken into account in the process as much as I expected before the survey.
