In a first moment, I explain the idea of musical virtuosity as seen and experienced in Kierkegaard’s day, using mainly the example of Franz Liszt and Niccòlo Paganini. The illuminating consequences of the virtuosic performance for the issue of simultaneity of presentation and representation are analysed in detail. In a second moment, I provide commented examples of Kierkegaard’s use of the concepts of the virtuoso and virtuosity, as applied to Emmeline and her creator, Eugène Scribe, Johannes the Seducer and Judge William. The operational value of the concepts is also focused on the cases of the woman and the creative writer.

Keywords: the Virtuoso, virtuosity, presentation, representation, performance, mood, voice
