In this workshop, which is conceived as an 'open rehearsal' in preparation for public performances, the performers work on developing an interpretation of Schubert's 'Arpeggione sonata' in A minor D.821. The cellist performed the piece many times while the pianist is new to it. Prior to the workshop, they had one private rehearsal. The aim of the workshop is to explore, and affirm, the status of professional music performance as a research activity, and in this connection, the rehearsal itself is regarded as a cite where various research processes including observation, evaluation, negotiation, analysis and criticism shape the collaborative music-making and the generation of a performance interpretation. Among the research questions considered are: - What kinds of knowledge do the performers bring into music-making (i.e oral, somatic, intuitive, historical, etc.)? - How does the composition shape and constrain the interpretative and collaborative processes? - What are the musical issues that arise as co-performers in a chamber music context develop an interpretation of the music they play (balance, phrasing, synchrony, tempo, etc.)? - How do the co-performers interpret and apply the various suggestions and requests made during the process of developing a performance interpretation? - How do the constraints imposed by the style/period/genre of the piece determine performance choices? - What are some of the markers of professionalism that are perceivable by the members of the audience?
