Seems like a simple enough question but seems to create a lot of disagreement. What is the difference between ritardando and rallentando?
A rallentando is when you gradully get slower.
A Ritenuto is when you slow down.
So Rit. is a much more immediate effect compared to a Rall.
Rit. is to play in a slower tempo whereas Rall. is to slow down.
Hope this helps
That makes sense. Thanks
is ritenuto another word for ritardando...
or am i being ritardanded ?
I know that one; it's a 'holding back' over a few notes, so more temporary.
6 characters or longer with both numbers and letters is safer
