Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach: Rondeau The vibrato, indicated by the sign , is only practicable on the clavichord, whereby "the finger resting on the key is rocked to and from, as it were. It is best to start the vibrato in the middle of the note's value, that is, when half the value of the note has passed." (From C. Ph. E. Bach: Essay on the True Art of Playing Keyboard Instruments). On the modern pianoforte, the effect is achieved by repeated change of pedal on the designated note.

Franz Liszt: Il pensieroso This title refers to Michelangelo's similarly named statue in Florence.
