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.

shostakovich preludes and fuges the fuge is fully non marked but on the beginning of text shostakovich wrote marcato and ff marks.And pianist play this fuge fully detached(non legato).why the pianists play this fuge fullu detashed.to take for marcato or notes written fully detasced.?İf the second sentence is right.We must play all the detashed notes with non legato.?Comment on this situation.?

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.
