Investigating Musical Performance considers the wide range of perspectives on musical performance made tangible by the cross-disciplinary studies of the last decades and encourages a comparison and revision of theoretical and analytical paradigms. The chapters present different approaches to this multi-layered phenomenon, including the results of significant research projects. The complex nature of musical performance is revealed within each section which either suggest aspects of dialogue and contiguity or discuss divergences between theoretical models and perspectives. Section One elaborates on the history, current trends and crucial aspects of the study of musical performance; Section Two is devoted to the development of theoretical models, highlighting sharply distinguished positions; Section Three explores the relationship between sign and sound in score-based performances; finally, the focus of Section Four centres on gesture considered within different traditions of music making. Three extra chapters by the editors complement Section One and Three and can be accessed via the online Routledge Music Research Portal. The volume shows actual and possible connections between topics, problems, analytical methods and theories, thereby reflecting the wealth of stimuli offered by research on the musical cultures of our times.
