the italian term "crescendo" is not a noun, is a gerund (meaning "raising",
"growing"), so, when substantivated, in italian language, is indeclinable -
thus if I "amo il crescendo rossiniano", I still "amo tutti i crescendo
rossiniani" (if you find an italian who says "crescendi", you have the
license to kill him). In an english context, the plural is simple:
If the english language respected italian (and french and spanish and
german...) language as it does with latin, I did not have to bother you!!!
But thanks for the try!
