How should staccatissimo be played on Handel, Beethoven, and Liszt pieces? I have read that it is like staccato only shorter, but it seems like it is used when notes should be staccato and accented. Am I dreaming?

  • Generally staccato notes should be accented slightly anyways. – Matthew Read Sep 14 '11 at 15:20

You're right, it is accented and shorter. The notes should be extremely separated and distinct.
