Definition and background:

A directive to perform the indicated passage in an animated manner or with motion. This is the German equivalent to the Italian terms mosso and animato. Often used with the term m'ssig, as in " m'ssig bewegt " meaning "at a moderate tempo." This is also seen as bewegter or "with more motion" (faster). See also [Eng.] animated; [Fr.] anim' ; [Ger.] bewegt; [It.] animato. (Ger) moved, with speedis used as a tempo indication meaning something the same as the Italian 'agitato', although massig bewegt is used as the equivalent of allegro moderato
