This causes me to be emotional at some parts, perhaps less so at others, and I find that this provides a sort of feedback which affects the manner in which I interpret and play it. If this didn't happen wouldn't all performances sound the same except for differences in technical capability?

Erik, everyone must find their own way to do things, but I am on Tony's
side on this one. A real artist must contain the passion and not let
the performance be led by it. When the feelings come out (at least in
my case), it does, as Tony says, bugger up the performance.

I recognize that this is counter intuitive, but at any concert, the ones
whose passion needs to be unrestrained, are those attending the concert,
not the ones playing it.
