As is indicated by the title, this presentation deals with implemented narrativity on two fronts within the complex process of live musical performance: a “concert story” told by the musician in front of the live audience in the performance situation and a structured complex of verbal and non-verbal narrative in the studio during the process of performance preparation. For Westney, a professional concert pianist and professor of piano pedagogy, the interest inutilizing aspects of applied narrativity lies in re-invigorating musicians’ performance and addressing issues with regard to the performer-audience relationship. For Grund, a philosopher who also has experience as a performing musician, analyzing this implementation of narrativity is an important part of exploring the formation of musical meaning from a philosophical standpoint in a practicebased context.
