1/7/2000: How do you interpret Tchaikowksy's indication of ffffff?
It is certainly a relative concept. In addition, I would not dwell on volume alone. I think Tchaikowsky was trying to express something about intensity. You have to think about it and about the overall shape and emotional impact of the entire work. There is no simple definition of what that marking means.
