Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The most important of these is the concept of rubato. Which means slightly speeding up or slowing down notes within a piece while keeping the basic beat constant. Chopin's music is usually cited as a good example of the use of this expressive technique.

Interesting pauses and many tempos in this Chopin's piece.
