I'm picking up this piece again, this time without a teacher. I don't remember the sheet being so complicated. If you can help me with these question, please help
1. What is "espress" mean in a sheet music, how do I suppose to play when I come upon that Italian (I think) in a piano sheet music.
2.I remember there was many part that when you play, you have to slow down, but I really don't see any thing on my sheet that tells me to slow down or speed up
. I can still use my feeling to make an interpretation but I just want to be sure.
3. What does "Poco più mosso." means, it appear at the beginning of the G major section. I think it implies the tempo, but I'm afraid I'm not understand "that" tempo.
4.When the G major section starts, these words appear: "ma poco a poco cresc", does that mean you will have to turn up the volume "little by little", eg like from pianissimo to forte slowly and smoothly?
5. Oh no, not again! What does "stringendo." mean?
I'll be very appreciated
Please help me if you have the time. Thanks in advance!
