We compared the performance cues (PCs), i.e. mental landmarks, reported by members of an established cello/piano duo in two concert performances of the F. Bridge Cello Sonata. We examined overlap between reports for individual and shared PCs and for both (all PCs). For the cellist, overlap across performances was higher for all and individual (35%) than for shared PCs (19%). For the pianist, overlap was highest for all (23%), lower for shared (15%), and lowest for individual PCs (6%). Both musicians prepared more PCs during practice than they actually used in any one performance, using them flexibly to achieve stability in performance. Differences between the musicians may have reflected differences in their musical roles or temperaments.
