Barra tackles this with great specificity using approaches which, according to Menhuin, provide connections between a musician's intuition and his or her reason. The book is full of specific musical examples, organized into chapters such as Phrasing, Rhythm and Meter, and Rubato.
"Patterns of Evolution" is the chapter in which Barra engages with music theory, discussing things such as the shape of melodies, the reoccurrence of motifs, and harmonic development -- all with the goal of arming the musician with information to be used in performance.
As might be expected, the musical examples that Barra calls upon, come out of the Western classical tradition, beginning the the Baroque and ending with early 20th century composers; numerous examples are taken from Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn with a healthy sampling of Romantic composers.
