Some Musical definitions: (sorry if some of these are a little too obscure)

Crescendo - a reminder that you are already playing too loud

coloratura soprano: a singer who has great trouble finding the proper note, but who has a wild time hunting for it

glissando: a technique adopted by string players for difficult runs.


senza sordino: a term used to remind the player that he forgot to put his mute on a few measures back

half step: the pace used by a cellist when carrying his instrument.

String Quartet - A good violinist, a bad violinist, an ex-violinist and a person who hates violinists all getting together to bitch about composers

risoluto: indicates to orchestras that they are to stubbornly maintain the correct tempo no matter what the conductor tries to do
