Chapter 5 extends the analysis of early music ‘work’ by undertakinga review of the emergent Britishearly musician labour market. The chapter opens with an analysis of the (push/pull) motivations behind the setting up of today’s leading early music ensembles (notably the class of ’73).This is followed byanalysis of issues relating to the labour market processes of hiring, training, rewarding and promoting. Particular attention is drawn to the under-supply of skilled early musicians, as well as the limited opportunities for formal training in HIP. The chapter then charts the meteoric rise of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and the sense in which this represented a decisive shift in the prevailing power-base for Early Music at the time. Particular attention is drawn to the orchestra’s working with the conductor Simon Rattle at Glyndebourne Opera, in a strategiccollaboration that was to fundamentally alter Early Music’sfortunes.
