Schnell — fast Bewegt — animated, with motion  One of the first German composers to use tempo markings in his native language was Ludwig van Beethoven.
The one using the most elaborate combined tempo and mood markings was probably Gustav Mahler. For example, the second movement of his Symphony No. Mahler would also sometimes combine German tempo markings with traditional Italian markings, as in the first movement of his sixth symphonymarked Allegro energico, ma non troppo.
Heftig, aber markig Energetically quick, but not too much. Violent, but vigorous . English tempo markings[ edit ] English indications, for example quickly, have also been used, by Benjamin Britten and Percy Graingeramong many others.
In jazz and popular music lead sheets and fake book charts, terms like "fast", "laid back", "steady rock", "medium", "medium-up", "ballad", "brisk", "up", "slowly", and similar style indications may appear. In some lead sheets and fake books, both tempo and genre are indicated, e.
The genre indications help rhythm section instrumentalists to use the correct style of playing. For example, if a song indicates "medium shuffle", the drummer will know to play a shuffle drum pattern. Similarly, if another song is labeled "fast boogie-woogie", then the piano player will know to play a boogie-woogie bassline.
For example, Lehrer specifies that the song "National Brotherhood Week" should be played "fraternally" or "We Will All Go Together" be played "eschatologically" and "Masochism Tango" be played "painstakingly".
Variation through a piece[ edit ] Tempo is not necessarily fixed. It is also possible to indicate a more or less gradual change in tempo, for instance with an accelerando speeding up or ritardando rit. On the smaller scale, tempo rubato refers to changes in tempo within a musical phraseoften described as some notes 'borrowing' time from others.
Terms for change in tempo[ edit ] Composers may use expressive marks to adjust the tempo: Accelerando — speeding up abbreviation: Ritardando — slowing down gradually; also see rallentando and ritenuto abbreviations: Ritenuto — slightly slower, but achieved more immediately than rallentando or ritardando; a sudden decrease in tempo; temporarily holding back.
Thus a more specific abbreviation is riten. Also, sometimes ritenuto does not reflect a tempo change but rather a 'character' change. Rubato — free adjustment of tempo for expressive purposes, literally "theft"—so more strictly, to take time from one beat to slow another Stretto — in a faster tempo, often used near the conclusion of a section.
Note that in fugal compositions, the term stretto refers to the imitation of the subject in close succession, before the subject is completed, and as such, suitable for the close of the fugue.
Stringendo — pressing on faster, literally "tightening" Tardando — slowing down gradually same as ritardando  While the base tempo indication such as Allegro typically appears in large type above the staffadjustments typically appear below the staff or, in the case of keyboard instruments, in the middle of the grand staff.
They generally designate a gradual change in tempo; for immediate tempo shifts, composers normally just provide the designation for the new tempo.The array of professional development programs are the highlight of PLA Conference.
