I think part of the problem is in recent time, some musicians have tended to sell themselves with excessive body motions and facial expressions..... In most cases (but not all), to make up for deficiencies in their playing.
And to some degree, the histrionics have impressed the audiences...... Lang Lang, violinist Maxim Vengerov, and conductors Leonard Bernstein, Simon Rattle, and Gustavo Dudamel maybe the most effective in this regard.
The Principal Viloa in the LA Phil is destined for back problems. My view is, if you can't hear it, don't do it!
Do you mean this lady?
We saw her play in Mozart sinf concertante with Gupta of the violins. This was with the CYMO Youth Orchestra. She moved around a LOT.
It seems to have worked well for Mahler, too.
