The Musical Significance of Clarinetists' Ancillary Gestures: An Exploration of the Field
TLDR
This article presents results from an ongoing exploratory analysis of ancillary gestures of several advanced clarinetists playing standard concert solo repertoire, focusing on the timing of various performance manners, the relation that anCillary gestures have to the musical score, the different styles of expressive movements among performers, and the perception of these movements by the audience.
