Hi there! So, usually the sound does not die away when a morendo is marked. Picture a child who is not sick dying (sorry for the sad mental image. hey, it's not real!). It's unnatural! Therefore, the sound is dramatic; it consistently moves from loud to soft and back again before ceasing entirely. The drama makes it seem like something very alive, but in actuality, it is a violent death. What happens if you want to die quietly? Decrescendos might be your new best friend. Don't put fancy Italian words where they don't belong. Happy living!
