tutti

tutti (plural of It. tutto, other forms tutta, tutte). All.
1. tutti, meaning ‘everybody’, is loosely used. A tutti is a passage, e.g. in conc., where the orch. (but not necessarily or even usually the whole orch.) plays without the soloist. ‘The opening tutti’ is a phrase often used in this connection.

2. tutte le corde, ‘all the str.’: in pf. mus., means ‘cease to play una corda’. tutto il cembalo means the same.
