    Vivace is Italian for "lively" and "vivid". It is pronounced in the International Phonetic Alphabet. Vivace is used as an Italian musical term indicating a movement that is in a lively mood. The speed typically coincides with that of "Molto Allegro" and implies a metronome marking of 132-160 beats per minute. It is usually found on a piece of music, at the start or at the beginning of a new phrase.
