Abstract [en]

Heaven and hell – success, ambivalence and habitus among professional musicians. The present article is written from a praxeological perspective treating professional musicians within artmusic. The empirical material consists of two in-depth interviews with two prominent musicians and professors from the prestigious music colleges – two Maestros. These musicians are successful, though not unthreatened in their positions. Their dispositions and modes of being musicians have varying significance over time. This means that their success is relative, understood as a consequence of how their habituses correspond with the changing practice they are a part of. Their success has also had some personal costs. The focus of the article is the relatively strong ambivalence expressed by the musicians. How come such successful musicians experience such strong ambivalence regarding their work? How can this be understood and explained? What role does the Maestro-myth of talent and calling play – in relation to the conditions of the work and the social history and habitus of the musicians? Theoretical perspectives in the article come from sociologists Pierre Bourdieu and Francine Muel-Dreyfus and ethnologist Henry Kingsbury among others.
