This chapter reviews the area of performance research in which great progress has been made internationally. Most interestingly, researchers are no longer interested solely in motor programming and internal clocks but also in knowing how people communicate and understand musical expression. It also brings modern research into contact with its historical roots. It discusses musical communication from three points of view: the performer’s and the listener’s standpoints and the side of the music itself, examining what is communicated by the structural elements of the music.

Keywords:   expressive performance, listener, musical communication, performance research, motor programming, musical expression
