Margaret Faultless is Director of Performance Studies in the Faculty of Music at Cambridge, Head of Historical Performance at the Royal Academy of Music, London, and co-leader of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Today she examines examples of musical notation from a performer’s point of view, and explains how notation is interpreted and leads to performance. Through musical examples, played on the violin, she discusses what information about performance practice is contained within the notation and how much is left to the performer’s imagination.
