Marked, Important, Special.

You need to emphasize the note in an appropriate way.

This could mean many things

1) Accent the note (louder)
2) Agogic accent (slight pause before for anticipation)
3) Detatched from previous note (like a subject entry)
4) If in a group of staccato notes, you may want to play this one legato, portato, etc.

There are many other ways to communicate that a note is special. Anyone else have ideas? The key is the context of the piece...your choice of technique should contribute to the greater purpose of the piece.

Jeremy, nicely put.

Marcato comes from the Italian verb marcare, meaning to mark, to highlight, to emphasize; to stamp; to stress; to score

As an adjective, it means: marked, sharp; branded; prominent, clean cut; highlighted, emphasized

I might add the concept "to stand out" or "to stand in front of" in our common English usage.

In a loud piece, you can mark a note by playing it quietly...

Beethoven indicated the use of this technique in some of his sonatas.
