This dissertation will investigate the relationship between mental imagery, emotion, and rubato. Secondary to this will be the acknowledgement of a means of interpreting emotions from music so that correlating mental images can be selected to induce emotions. The means chosen is harmonic structure, which, historically, is known to represent different emotions.

This dissertation will investigate the relationship between mental imagery, emotion, andrubato. Secondary to this will be the acknowledgement of a means of interpretingemotions from music so that correlating mental images can be selected to induceemotions. The means chosen is harmonic structure, which, historically, is known torepresent different emotions.The motivation to research this topic stems mainly from influences whilst at musiccollege. At one time, a teacher had encouraged me frequently to think of programmeswhilst playing; the main purpose of this was to induce emotions within me which themusic reflected –to enhance the relationship between emotions already experienced in the past and the harmonic structures on the page. This always resulted in more rubato beingused. In addition to this, I became concerned whilst observing students in masterclasseswho found it difficult, when asked by the teacher, to express through the application of rubato. Conversely, I observed rubato being encouraged successfully; students wereasked to imagine programmes from their memories which were emotionally-based on theharmonic structures of the piece. Finally, many authors and performers advocate this,even more-so in recent times since they agree that an emotional communication has become lost in today’s performances. There are also philosophers who agree thatWesterners are guided increasingly less by emotions, and are more prone to limited,rational thinking. By reviewing literature and conducting an empirical study, thisdissertation will assist those who lack the ability to express by acknowledging a harmlessmethod, if used wisely, which may encourage natural expression.3
