Musical performance, musical expression, emotion transmission


Through the practice experience as violin´s performer, in this paper the author shows the communicative intention of music and emphasizes the expressive and emotional feelings that musicians feel and perceive through the music they perform, transmitting their sensations to the audience. With a very personal vision, she shows how the communicative function of performers has always existed along the history of music, and she remembers the most representative figures of all times, as performers and as expressive creators.
