    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

    I know that one; it's a 'holding back' over a few notes, so more temporary.
