Even if your own playing moves you tremendously please keep your eyes open. I’ve seen players close their eyes, as if that is somehow allowing them to get more “into” what they are doing. It actually tends to put off an audience. At least some of them. And if you’re playing in an orchestra it doesn’t exactly make the conductor happy! :-)

This picture is from Nodame Cantabile. I purchased one of these books. I don’t “get” this stuff. I think I’m too old. Oh … and FYI, they are playing the Poulenc trio.
