Musical Term of the Week

by Melissa Wimbish

Even softer than this...

I didn’t realize this term actually existed! All of those times I thought my Italian coach was just really exaggerating …

pianissississississimo – a directive to a musician to perform a passage as soft as possible, even softer than pianississississimo. (pppppp)
