The word incalzando is derived from the Italian word which can mean to "press", "urge", "follow closely", or to "be imminent."As a musical directive, incalzando tells a musician to perform a certain passage in a urgent or pressing manner; getting faster and louder and pressing forward.<br><br>A particularly good example of incalzando can be heard over and over again in the theme of Liszt's Sonata in B Minor, S.178 (Part 1). Starting around bar 191, this piano piece moves from agitato, where the subjects becomes agitated and nervous to incalzando around bar 255 where it becomes forceful, faster and boisterous.<br><br>Incalzando is not a oft used term, especially in modern composition, with the terms allegro or accelerando being used instead.<br>
