How do you say "bridge" when talking about music?
I know that the chorus is called "el coro", but is the bridge called "la puente"?
I believe that it would be called the "interludio." If you are unfamiliar with this term then you might want to look up the word "interlude" as it applies to music. Interludio: Breve composición que ejecutaban los organistas entre las estrofas de una coral, y modernamente se ejecuta a modo de intermedio en la música instrumental.
"puente" is the bridge on a string instrument and does not refer to the composition of a piece of music according to the RAE. Puente: Pieza de los instrumentos de cuerda que en la parte inferior de la tapa sujeta las cuerdas.
It may be that the use of "puente" to refer to the "bridge" in music is an example of code switching and that is why it is not listed in the RAE. Whether this is true or not, I have seen musicians refer to the bridge as "puente," and it is popularly used. Here is are two links to reputable site dedicated to music that contain an online glossary of musical terms that may come in handy: Patrimonio Musical Hagase La Musica
It is called **el puente*** or ***el interludio.***
I believe that both terms can be used, but I am more familiar with "el puente" as used by my Spanish speaking musician friends. musical bridge
The answer for the musical form is Puente. A bridge is a bridge...
The bridge on an instrument? Is this what you mean?
