    The audience was so impressed with Linda's

    Have I made any mistakes?

    The audience was so impressed with Linda's interpretation of Schumann's songs that she had to give three encores, and they still demanded more. She left the stage with half a dozen bouquets in her arms, overwhelmed with emotion.

    I wonder if performance would work in place of interpretation.

    It can, but "interpretation" has a more specific meaning. Do you know the difference?

    Not really, teechar. I thought they were synonymous.

    Each individual singer does not sing a song the same way, just as an artist does not paint a scene or a portrait the same. In art which music is part of, they have their own interpretation of a song or a subject. In music, it is also called a rendtion.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
