Based on some conversations with pro musicians, I would suggest that ego has
a big part to play...

i.e. - they put the work in because they want to make damn sure it's the
composer, and not them, who gets blamed for the fact that that the music's
crap. ;-)

I think a lot of it is finding something in the music that you really
like, whether it be a passage, a chord, or a sonority, or whatever. Of
course, if the music is just crap, then yes, it definitely would be
difficult to keep interested in it!
