Foreign Language Definitions
Here's a thought I just had.... frequently those of us who do not have the benefit of a "higher education" in music run across foreign definitions for which we cannot find the correct interpretation. How about a forum/thread in which we could build a bit of a reference library of these terms?
Here's one.... Ripieno Senza Sord.
Now, I know that it's "without mute" (senza sordino)... but what the heck is "Ripieno"?
Isn't that the group accompanying a solo voice? Like the old Concerti Grossi?
I believe it is...that is where the position Repiano Cornet in a brass band originates from.
Take a look for yourself. It seems that it depends on the context.
As far as I know, it is Italian and it basically means "stuffing" or "filling", that's why you see it in Italian recipe books too ;)
It means, as others have stated, inner parts, accompanyment etc..
Brass bands have Solo , Repiano and 2nd and 3rd cornets which used to be referred to as 2nd Repiano and 3rd Repiano parts in days gone by (not a lot of band folk know that!! :) )
Ahh... so "everyone BUT the soloists play here without mute"? Interesting... it shows up at bar 8 in Holst's 2nd Suite in Eb, 1st movement on the 2nd part. As far as I can tell only the 1sts and 2nds play that particular line for about 8? 9 bars.
Ripieno (Italian) a term used to distinguish passages played by soloists (concertante) and those played by the whole orchestra (ripieno)
I found this at an on-line music dictionary site! www.dolmetsch.com/musictheorydefs.htm
Thanks, Bill. Saved that one in "favorites".
