re: New Music Terms

With all the craziness going on, I figure we can all use some humor. Most of you have probably already seen this, but just in case it makes you laugh...

ALLEREGRETTO: When you're 16 measures into the piece and suddenly realize you set too fast a tempo.

ANGUS DEI: To play with a devinely beefy tone.

A PATELLA: Accompanied by knee-slapping.

APOLOGGIATURA: A composition that you regret playing.

APPROXIMATURA: A series of notes not intended by the composer, yet played with an "I meant to do that" attitude.

APPROXIMENTO: A musical entrance that is somewhere in the vicinity of the correct pitch.

DILL PICCOLINI: An exceedingly small wind instrument that only plays sour notes.

FERMANTRA: A note held over and over and over and over and...

FIDDLER CRABS: Grumpy string players.

FLUTE FLIES: Those tiny insects that bother musicians on outdoor gigs.

FRUGALHORN: A sensible and inexpensive brass instrument.

GAUL BLATTER: A French horn player.

GREGORIAN CHAMP: The title bestowed upon the monk who can hold a note the longest.

PLACEBO DOMINGO: A faux tenor.

SPRITZICATO: An indication to string instruments to produce a bright and bubbly sound.

TEMPO TANTRUM: What an elementary school orchestra is having when it's not following the conductor.

re: Musical terms

Definition of perfect pitch: Tossing an accordion so that it lands on a banjo in the dumpster
