The seminar presents a model of the motor, cognitive and emotional
processes taking place in piano performance, and an annotation scheme
for the analysis of the pianist´s body movements. By applying the scheme
to a concert and a rehearsal, the paper outlines the similarities and
differences in the pianist´s body movements depending on the musical
structure of the piece and on the performance situation, and finally
presents a lexicon of a pianist´s body movements.
