I know that:
- The dynamic marking f means forte, or play loud. And that p means piano, or play soft.
- The dynamic marking fp means fortepiano, or play this note loud, and play the following notes soft.
I have an old music book that uses the dynamic marking of f-p which I hadn't seen before:
I'm not sure how to interpret this f-p dynamic marking:
- It could be just a different way of writing fp.
- It could mean play some where in the range of f to p.
- (As it only appears in the book at the start of a repeated section) it could mean play f on the first play through, and p on the repeat.
How should I interpret f-p?
