Towards the end of Chopin's Etude No. 4 in C# minor, Op. 10 No. 4, it says "con più fuoco possibile." What does this mean?
Definition of con fuoco : FIERILY, IMPETUOUSLY —used as a direction in music
possibile = as possible
Con fuoco Definition and background:A musical directive to the performer to play a particular passage with vehement energy or fervid emotion. with fire, in a fiery manner
this means: most fierly
but not hot sexy!
this was only con fuoco! you can't imagine like it would be:
con piu fuoco possibile piu = even more!
edit! the commentors are right:
this conductor explains much better
what con fuoco means:
Word by word:
- con - with
- più - more
- fuoco - fire
- possibile - possible
In Italian, "possibile" stuck on the end of a phrase means "as much [preceding thing] as possible".
So translated as a phrase: "With as much fire as possible"
