October 3, 2007 at 8:59 PMI got a music email from a lady from an orchestra:
Adagio fromaggio - To play in a slow and cheesy manner
Anti-phonal - No phones allowed in concert hall
A patella - Unaccompanied knee slapping
Approximatura - A series of notes played by the performer, not
intended by the composer
Bar line - What musicians form after a concert
Concerto grossissimo - A really bad performance
Fog hornoso - A sound that is heard when the conductor's
intentions are not clear
Molto bolto - Head straight for the ending
Tempo tantrumo - What happens when the conductor and orchestra
have differing ideas of the correct speed
Zzzfortzando - Play very loudly, in order to wake up the audience
I'm pleased as a novice to have truly mastered this!
Aqua-pella: singing in the shower
