Title
Pragmatized aesthetics: the impact of legitimacy pressures in symphony orchestras
Author
Abstract
This article explores the balancing exercise between opposing value regimes in symphony orchestras. This complex environment in which art organizations move while producing art will be mapped out in a model called a biotope. In recent years, orchestras have been struck hard by declines in the cultural sector. As a result of opposing legitimacy pressures in todays symphony orchestras, standardized canonical repertoire now serves as a pragmatized aesthetic compromise. This article suggests that although this compromise grants short-term legitimacy to the art organization, it simultaneously brings its biotope out of balance, reinforcing the legitimacy crisis it was meant to avert.
