I was listening to Garrick Ohlsson’s performance of the Larghetto from Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 1 in C minor, Op. 4 while following along in a score. In the recording, in almost every other measure, Ohlsson created a slight delay before playing the next measure. Nowhere in the score is it written for the performer to play ritardando, so I suppose that’s just Ohlsson’s interpretation which, of course, meant a total disregard of metronome rigidity, IOW, how a human - and not a robot - would play.
Is this humanize effect possible in Dorico without me creating ritardandos in a midi score? If not, can I create a ritardandos anyway but not have rit. symbols in the score? Thanks.
