In piano music sometimes there is a section that is repeated, and on the repeat one (or both) hands are to play an octave up (or down).
I've seen this notated in English in the following form:
2nd time RH 8va
- But is there similar notation in the common music language Italian?
I imagine it might be rendered as something like:
V2 m.d. 8va (Volta seconda mano destra all'ottava)
But this is just a guess, is this good music-Italian?
When it's for both hands, such as:
2nd time play both hands 8va
I'm tempted to write something like:
V2 e.m. 8va (Volta seconda entrambe le mani all'ottava)
Again this is just a guess, as I don't speak Italian.
Are there examples of this sort of notation in the repertoire?
Is there another way to notate that on the repeat, the notes for one (or both) hands are to be played an octave up (or down)?
I've found a similar notation in Bartók's Mikrokosmos, No. 113:
Here, the following is used to show a change of dynamic on the repeat:
la IIa volta meno f
This seems to generally agree with both both @AakashM's and @Old_Brixtonian's answers (below). Though notably it uses a capital roman numeral to abbreviate seconda.
The Dolmetsch dictionary entry for IIda agrees with @AakashM's ordinal abbreviation of IIda rather than Bartók's IIa.
However, I am still not sure how best to indicate which hand/hands the notation is applying to.
Should I put the marking over each staff that it applies to?
This would make hand indication superfluous, but an 8va over a bass clef seems kinda yuk.
Or should I use m.d/m.s. and possibly e.m. or d.m.?
This would make it unambiguous as to whether it applies to one hand or both. But perhaps I shouldn't abbreviate entrambe le mani / le due mani?
I would find it helpful to see a score that uses this (or similar notation) for a change of octave on a repeat.
