Sorry if my question is too simple or obvious to the experienced piano players,
so the piece starts with the dynamics "f" and "marcato",
f - loud
marcato - stressed, pronounced
then towards the bottom of the image it transitions to a "p"
p - soft and quiet
so I know dynamics continues indefinitely until stated otherwise but I have the following questions
What exactly does it mean to play it "marcato"; stressed and pronounced here? You're already playing "f" loud and accenting many notes, do you give extra oomf to the non-accented notes as well?
Is the "f" and "marcato" tied together? When you reach the "p" you obviously stop playing "f", but there is nothing to negate the "marcato", I feel like it's implied "marcato" is discarded with the "p" because "marcato" doesn't exactly fit with soft and quite, but I just wanted to ask to be sure
