2010.Socialization of young virtuosos in the milieu of soloists involves creating and entertaining particular ties. Those ties, which mix the private and professional lives of teacher, student, and parents, offer an interesting avenue for studying socialization. I examine one relationship crucial to the virtuoso's career: the close-knit relationship between teacher and student, and the effect each one has on the career of the other. I define this process as “career coupling,” where those involved build their careers together. I base this analysis on ethnographic research of the careers of elite musicians.

2007. Si les arts et les sciences sont souvent opposés dans les discours, émotion contre raison, subjectif contre objectif..., les deux types d'activités, parce qu'ils incluent l'un comme l'autre des processus de création et des opérations de connaissance, sont bien souvent confrontés à des problèmes similaires : la question de l'attribution de la paternité et de la propriété des créations, l'établissement de la valeur de ces créations, l'importance prise par les moyens techniques dans le travail de conception, de réalisation, de diffusion...

2004. Formation of Violinist Virtuosos: Supporting Networks. This paper examines the formation of virtuoso soloists - a complex process which includes a suite of selections. These selections are practiced from the very childhood and depend on various principles. The article analyses a determining role of the network formed with people who occupy different positions in the division of the musical world. In the course of the last stage of the formation of young virtuosos, these networks assure (or not) the access to rare resources, which are the condition for an effective entrance into the virtuoso career.
