Usual BPM: Between 120 and 168

Tempo: music should be played quickly and in a light-hearted manner.

Brahm's Hungarian Dance No. 5 is a good example of allegro - the piece is quick and lively, but not rushed.

Another example is the first movement of Spring from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. The music is upbeat and lively while not feeling too quick.
