In this chapter, we aim to distinguish between the concepts of creativity, originality and value and argue that future research in this area must unpack the various roles of each in order to understand human excellence. We go on to consider the relationship between originality and value in the context of Western classical performance, and offer a tentative model of how they may co-vary.
