One of the five answer choices may appear correct but it would make the entire sentence a run-on sentence. Here is a blog article that not only explores the idea of the run-on sentence error but also gives a detailed explanation to the above SC question.

Very tricky and confusing. Not sure what the role of — indeed the name comes from the Italian forte (“loud”) + piano (“soft”) is in the sentence. maybe this is what confused me.

Meaning says, fortepiano did something earlier but now its doing something. Only B, clearly expresses that meaning.
