Abstract

Tis study aims to characterize representative performances by experienced pianists in order to determine main infuential trends in performance, PARTICULARLY IN EUROPE, derived specifcally from traditional piano practices referred to as National Piano Schools. Te methodology of this exploratory study departs from a musicological empirical analysis in articulation with recent technological developments for metric methods. It allowed an analysis of gesture and musical semantics by applying a multimodal approach for capturing the pianist performance based on the extraction of features¹ sets specifcally targeted to each piano school. In this paper we describe the quantitative analysis approach based on motion capture.
