1900; originally to a German text
author of text

The excitable Allegro was initially sketched in 1900 as a setting of German verse—Ives tried fitting two different poems by different authors to the vocal line before giving up and writing the poem himself.

Le nerveux Allegro fut initialement ébauché en 1900, sur des vers allemands. Ayant tenté en vain d’adapter à sa ligne vocale deux poésies d’auteurs différents, Ives écrivit son propre poème.

Das aufgeregte Allegro wurde 1900 ursprünglich als Vertonung eines deutschen Textes skizziert—Ives versuchte, zwei andere Gedichte von zwei verschiedenen Autoren in die Gesangsstimme zu zwingen, bevor er aufgab und selbst das Gedicht dafür schrieb.
