It contains papers by José Antonio Bowen, Martin Pfleiderer, Cynthia Folio / Alexander Brinkman, John Gunther, and Olivier Senn. The second part, entitled “Methods of music performance analysis”, addresses methodological issues for the analysis of performed music. The papers of Marc-Antoine Camp et al., Elena Alessandri, Matthias Arter, Richard Turner, Jürg Huber, and Claudia di Luzio discuss a variety of approaches and present Music Performance Studies as a thoroughly interdisciplinary field.
