1. Factors that may influence expressivity in music performance (the performed piece, the instruments, the performers, the listeners, the social context) 2. A selection of factors that transcend a specific time and place (the so called GERMS model proposed by them in «Musicae Scientiae» 2002) 3. The results obtained by research on music emotions (for example the volume by Juslin and Sloboda eds.: Music and Emotion, Oxford University Press, 2001) 4. A novel approach based on feedback learning and published in the article.
