Hi

Does anyone know the meaning of the performance direction "Cediendo" which
appears several times throughout the Segovia transcription of 'Variations on
a theme by Frescobaldi?

Don't know the piece, but cediendo means _relaxing_ in Spanish. . .

. . . at least this seems logical to me. :-)

It comes from the same Latin root as "cede" which means to give in or yield.

Thank you from the future! I saw this term in the andante of Torroba’s sonatina and your brief conversation was the best translation.
