Easy / medium

Word or term in question:

il pose une intention joyeuse pour sa musique


En concert, si le musicien ou le chanteur doit jouer un air gai, il pose une intention joyeuse pour sa musique, et ses doigts feront le reste.



he puts himself in a joyful frame of mind for the sake of the music

My comment:

Speaking as a musician....
I can't think of a more succinct way of saying this, because it's not so much thinking of the piece as joyful as putting oneself in that frame of mind in order to communicate the mood/feel/emotions implicit in the piece. And then certainly the fingers will do the rest.
