Altissimo (ital. "sehr hoch") bezeichnet in der Musik das Spielen von einzeln Tönen, Phrasen oder Melodien in einem Tonbereich, der über dem regulären Tonbereich des betreffenden Instruments liegt. Besonders gebräuchlich ist der Begriff für Holzblasinstrumente, dort insbesondere für die Saxophone. Das Spielen von Tönen im Altissimo-Bereich erfordert besondere Fähigkeiten des Instrumentalisten.
