ilare, mobile

The term 'ilare' is an Italian music term and it shows up in Beethoven's Sonata Nr. 16 in Simon and Schuster 1935 Arthur Schnabel, Editor Vol 1.
I can't find it in any dictionary....

    Hi Brian, Welcome to the forum. "Ilare" in Italian means cheerful. I don't know how this relates to music. Hope you find it helpful. ;)

    Ilare means gay, merry, cheerful or laughing.

    In this context (music) it should correspond to allegro or allegretto.

    Please see this thread, you'll find a useful link to a glossary.

    Thanks,

    BTW The thread you pointed to does not contain ilare, like many glossaries and dictionaries out there.

    Regards

    Yes, Brian, sorry. I forgot to tell you that I checked the word and it wasn't there. But I thought you could find it useful for other related terms and to check allegro and allegretto ;)
