Author Topic: Double sforzando  (Read 2601 times)

Okay, I just found out how to insert a sforzando, so it ends up looking like "sfz".  But how do I insert one (that I DID find in music) that has TWO f's?  "sffz", in other words.  I have no idea what it's called, but I'd like to know how to enter it.

What is sfzorando anyway?
« Reply #2 on: 2005-04-05 01:16 AM »

sforzando, sfz (sfor-TSAHN-doh): A strong accent on a note which is played with sudden emphasis. ("with force")

(see Joseph Haydn's Surprise Symphony for example)

sfz = suddenly loud

sffz = suddenly very loud (extreme articulation)

Okay, so how do you enter one?

A crude way without having the character in a font is to put in by text using Times Roman Italic using a size to match.

You can find the on alt 0131. sz {Hold down the alt key while typing the numbers}

I have a font with it already done if you want to email me:

You don't need the (on alt 0131) - regular f works just fine when using Times New Roman bold italic.
[Before the forum switched fonts a few months ago, this would look exactly like what you need: sffz]

Correct. It's certainly better.

Or, just for the hell of it, use the old Dutch guilder sign (F for florin)
Alt-159. --> sz
