Abstract [en]

From a hermeneutic perspective, a qualitative study based on interviews of six musicians has been conducted. The informants work or have worked in orchestras with hierarchical or non- hierarchical structure. The asked questions concerned the informants’ experiences of equality, interaction, motivation, their personal musical development and the quality of the orchestra’s performance. The biggest differences that were noticed concerned the perceived degree of equality, which was higher in the non-hierarchical orchestra. Furthermore, the psychosocial environment correlates with equality in the orchestra and is thus a structural issue. All the informants stated that the best musical performance can be achieved in a hierarchical orchestra, in which all musicians play the part they auditioned to. Contrary to the results from the interviews, the literature used in this study states that the best musical quality is achieved in orchestras with a non-hierarchical structure. 

Abstract [sv]

Med utgångspunkt i ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv har en kvalitativ studie genomförts, med intervjuer av sex musiker. Dessa arbetar eller har arbetat i hierarkisk eller icke- hierarkisk orkesterstruktur. Frågorna som ställts har handlat om informanternas upplevelse av jämlikhet, samspel, motivation, den egna musikaliska utvecklingen samt det musikaliska resultatet i orkestern. De skillnader som var störst framkom i upplevelsen av jämlikhet, som upplevdes starkast i den icke-hierarkiska orkestern. Den psykosociala miljön relateras till jämlikheten i orkestern och är således en strukturell fråga. En gemensam åsikt som framkom i undersökningen var att det bästa musikaliska resultatet uppnås i den hierarkiska orkesterstrukturen där alla spelar den stämma de har provspelat sig till och således spelar med högsta möjliga nivå. De exemplen från litteraturen som tas upp visar dock en annan bild av hög musikalisk nivå, som uppnås i orkestrar med icke-hierarkisk struktur.
