fortissimo piano

for-TEE-see-moe pee-AH-noe


A dynamic marking that combines the two terms, fortissimo (loud), and piano (soft). The marking is indicated by ffp, or the combination of ff (fortissimo or loud) and p (piano or soft). This indicates that the marked note should be attacked very loudly, instantly diminishing to a much softer volume.
See more about dynamic marks in the Appendix.
