This is not just a Dorico question. It’s a general music question, with possible implications for Dorico, depending on the answer.
Can anyone think of an articulation that means the opposite of an accent? That is, a symbol that means “play this note a little less strongly than normal”?
In my 70+ years of reading and playing music, I don’t recall ever encountering such a mark, which seems odd, since almost everything else in music has an opposite.
And, if you know of such a mark, how does one make it in Dorico?
I’m going to feel really stupid if there’s an obvious answer.
