Expressive timing in Schumann's ''Träumerei:'' An analysis of performances by graduate student pianists

1995 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Statistical analyses were conducted on the expressive timing patterns of performances of Schumann's "Traumerei" by 10 graduate student pianists who played from the score on a Yamaha Disclavier after a  ...  This demonstrates that precision in expressive timing does not require extensive study and practice of the music at hand, only general musical and technical competence.  ...  The most extensive analysis of this kind included 28 recorded performances of Robert Schumann's well-known piano piece, "Traumerei" (Repp, 1992a) .  ...

The Kinematics of Musical Expression in the Spatiotemporal Dimension

Steven Livingstone
2013 Empirical Musicology Review  
During performance, musicians are known to move their bodies in rhythmic and expressive displays.  ...  Third, the periodic nature of performers’ motion profiles may lend themselves to frequency-based analyses that may reveal an underlying musical ‘pulse’ or pulses of the performer.  ...  This quality opens the data up to a range of analyses that may yield insight into the rhythmic and repeating nature of performers' movements.  ...

Relational invariance of expressive microstructure across global tempo changes in music performance: An exploratory study

Bruno H. Repp
1994 Psychological Research  
Two pianists played Schumann's "Traumerei" three times at each of three tempi on a digital piano, and the performance data were recorded in MIDI format.  ...  This study addressed the question of whether the expressive microstructure of a music performance remains relationally invariant across moderate (musically acceptable) changes in tempo.  ...  Methods The music The score of Schumann's "Traumerei" is shown in Figure 1 ; its layout highlights the hierarchical structure of the piece.  ...

The dynamics of expressive piano performance: Schumann's ''Träumerei'' revisited

Bruno H. Repp
1996 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Ten graduate.student pianists were recorded playing Robert Schumann's "Traumerei" three times on a Yamaha Disklavier. Their expressive dynamics were analyzed at the level of hammer (MIDI) velocities.  ...  Individual differences in expressive dynamics were not striking and were only weakly related to individual differences in expressive timing.  ...  The music A computer-generated score of Schumann's "Traumerei" is shown in Figure 1 . The layout on the page illuminates the phrase structure, which is discussed in more detail in Repp (1992) .  ...

Timing microstructure in Schumann's "Träumerei" as an expression of harmony, rhythm, and motivic structure in music performance

J. Beran, G. Mazzola
2000 Computers and Mathematics with Applications  
We give statistical evidence that specific rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic analyses are dominating shaping structures for the agogical streams from 28 performances of Schumann's "Tr/iumerei", as measured  ...  These analyses are provided by the Rubato analysis and performance workstation.  ...  There is strong statistical evidence for the timing microstructure in 28 fanmus performances of Schumann's "Triiumerei" as being an expression solely of harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic structures furnished  ...

Towards an Evolution Model of Expressive Music Performance

Qijun Zhang, Eduardo Miranda
2006 Sixth International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications  
In previous work [19] , we have shown that GA can evolve suitable pulse sets for musical performance.  ...  the hierarchical pulse sets for music interpretation, where the fitness of GA is derived from the structure of the music to be performed.  ...  Selected musical structures Music performance mainly functions to communicate the music idea of a piece with listeners, by performers.  ...

Expressive Meaning and the Empirical Analysis of Musical Gesture

Joshua D. Albrecht
2018 Music Theory Online  
By presenting short musical gestures to listeners, a bottom-up, data-driven analysis of the expressive meaning of musical gestures and topics in the movement is possible.  ...  An exploratory case study illustrates the progressive exposure method through an analysis of the expressive meaning of the second movement of Beethoven'sPathétiqueSonata.  ...  In this study, Repp averaged together the mictrotiming decisions of ten different performances of Schumann's Traumerei and compared this "average" performance to the original ten recordings.  ...

Bach, as by the shining difficulty in its interpretation. In regard to the data we will work from real audio recordings.  ...  Expressive performance characterization is traditionally based on the analysis of the main differences between performances, players, playing styles and emotional intentions.  ...  The most common methods are through analysis by measurement and analysis by synthesis: the first one is based on deviation analysis from musical notation measured in recorded human performances.  ...

Effect of tempo on relative note durations in a performed samba groove

Mari Romarheim Haugen, Anne Danielsen
2020 Journal of New Music Research  
In the present study, we investigated the influence of tempo on such sixteenth-note patterns in a performed samba groove.The results revealed an uneven duration pattern in all tempi.  ...  We suggest that the differences in relative durations between tempi reflect the need to maintain the samba sixteenth note 'template' in all tempi: producing the samba 'feel' requires that relative durations  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank the samba performers for their participation in the study, Georgios Sioros and Victor Evaristo Gonzalez Sanchez for assistance during the recordings, and  ...
