Abstract [en]

During the period 1840 to 1890, musical life in Stockholm saw the transition of concert

life from representational culture to the bourgeois public sphere and the gradual

division between ‘classical’ and ‘popular’ musical spheres. This article presents a brief

overview of the state of public musical life in Stockholm, how concert life changed

during the period 1840 to 1890 among performers and audiences and in the press

and how the old royal institutions, while remaining at the core of public musical life,

were adapted to the new bourgeois society. The article also focuses on the concept of

bildung and demonstrates the signifi cance of this in the processes of institutionalization

and professionalization within musical life.
