Introduction. General aspects of time ; Time in music -- Thoughts of an ongoing dialogue. Time structure in music : a theoretical perspective ; Discussion : elements of the perspective ; Broader implications of the perspective -- Rhythmic/metric structure : examples. Bizet : Symphony in c, movement I ; Bizet : Symphony in c, movement IV ; Haydn : Symphony no. 101, movement III (trio) ; Dvorak : Symphony no. 7 in D minor, op. 70, movement I ; Mozart : Violin concerto no. 5 K. 219, movement II ; Brahms : Symphony no. 2, movement II ; Mozart : Symphony no. 41 ("Jupiter"), movement III ; Scriabin : Piano concerto in F-sharp minor, movement III, a counterexample -- On tempo and proportional tempo -- Proportional tempo : historical aspects. Historical evidence ; Internal evidence : the score -- Proportional tempo : biological bases. The principle of periodicity ; Periodicity and biology ; Periodicity, hierarchy, and phase ; The biological clock ; Time perception and the biological clock ; Neural mechanics of the biological clock ; Periodicity, oscillation, and coupled oscillators ; Summary -- Proportional tempo : designation, criteria. Means of proportional designation ; Tempo measurement techniques ; Deviations : criteria for significance ; Temporal order threshold -- Proportional tempo : musical examples. Mozart ; Beethoven ; Schumann ; Brahms ; Mahler ; Tchaikowsky ; Other examples -- Proportional tempo relations : a universal? Case studies ; Summary and conclusions -- Nonlinear tempos : pilot studies of rubato and acceleration/ritard -- Rubato. History and theory ; Properties of the model ; Periodicity/phase ; Hierarchy ; Special features ; Discrepancies of phase fit ; Case studies in rubato -- Acceleration and ritard. Properties of the model ; Integral boundaries ; Cubic curve ; Special features ; Select case studies ; Supporting case studies -- Of tempo : afterword -- Affect and musical motion. Debussy: "Nuages" (no. 1, Three nocturnes for orchestra) ; Mendelssohn : Fingal's cave overture (the Hebrides) ; Wagner : Prelude to Tristan and Isolde ; Mozart : Piano concerto no. 20 in D minor, K. 466, movement I
