Table 1 The four music tracks that were used in Kontukoski et al.’s [18] recent study. Listening to these pieces, some idiosyncrasies associated with the performances should perhaps be mentioned. First, the breathing of the pianist is clearly audible in the Satie piece. The Schumann recording is not of the highest quality. There is audience noise, and the recording itself is rather sharp sounding, and this aspect of the recording could possibly have affected the results reported by Kontukoski and colleagues
