The Side Show

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.

The Side Show [«L’attraction foraine»] est datée de 1921, mais remonte à une pièce composée par Ives pour un spectacle de la Yale Fraternity donné en 1896 et fondée sur l’air, alors populaire, de Pat Rooney Sr, «Are You the O’Riley?». C’est une sorte de valse trébuchante – et pour cause: elle décrit un vieux cheval tirant un manège.

The Side Show [„Die Nebenveranstaltung“] ist zwar mit 1921 datiert, hat aber ihren Ursprung in einem Stück, das Ives 1896 für die Yale Fraternity Show [eine Veranstaltung der Studentenverbindung der Yale University] komponierte. Das Stück beruht auf dem damals beliebten Unterhaltungslied von Pat Rooney snr., „Are You the O’Riley?“ [„Sind Sie der O’Riley?“]. Das Lied ist eine Art wankender Walzer und beschreibt ein altes Pferd beim Ziehen eines Karussells.
