Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Side Show, though dated 1921, originated in a piece Ives composed for a Yale Fraternity show in 1896, based on the then-popular song by Pat Rooney Snr, ‘Are You the O’Riley?’. It’s a kind of stumbling waltz, since it describes an old horse pulling a merry-go-round.
