    Dynamics are sustained until the next dynamic marking - or until the conductor throws something at you.

    Yes Catello is correct, they are like speed limit signs on the highway;in effect until you see another one. The conductor however is allowed to ask you to play variations to a straight dynamic for an entire section of music.
