Concerts as education – a historical survey
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Culture and Aesthetics.
2014 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The idea of education or rather that of Volksbildung has been most central to the public museums throughout the 20th Century.  At the Stockholm Music- and Theatre Museum one of the ways to achieve this were, already from the beginning, to arrange concerts with a repertoire of music rarely played on other stages, and often historical instruments were used. Until the big change in the 80’s when access to the museum objects became much more restricted, the idea was to let the instruments from the collections sound in lectures and concerts. As a consequence many of the instruments in the collection were restored to playing condition, especially in the 50’s and 60’s. Did collectors select instruments for the museum due to their playability? This paper will deal with the history of concert activities at the Stockholm Music and Theatre Museum, with a special focus on the Early Music Movement and the Folk Music Revival, presenting some of the persons and ideologies involved.
