With numerous musical examples, including excerpts from Dukas's exciting Sorcerer's Apprentice, our musical host explores the many uses of dynamics. Loud (forte), soft (piano), crescendo, and decrescendo are defined and demonstrated on the keyboard, guitar, and Latin American rainstick. He also explains through example the important role of dynamics in telling a story and evoking various emotions in the listener.
