grazioso [I], con grazia, gratioso, graziös [G], Mit Grazie—graceful, gracefully; easy
sonata, sonate, suonato—a complicated term. Originally, "sounded" rather than "sung" (sonar vs. cantar), e.g. instrumental music. According to historical period, sonata began to imply a formal plan of movements as well as the structure within a single movement, e.g. sonata form. In general usage as a work title, it designates a multi-movement piece for solo or duo instruments with one of the instruments enjoying a feature role.
sonatina [I], sonatine [F]—"little" sonata, typically shorter, less technically challenging, perhaps less "profound". Movements tend to minimize development sections.
vivace—brisk, lively tempo faster than allegro
