Take Beethoven`s Walstein. Starts at a cracking pace. Now, I enjoyed playing this a few years ago blissfully unaware of how fast it should be played at. Until I unearthed a copy of this Sonata played at an East European Piano Contest.

Nearly twice as fast as I played it. Sounded like somebody was real late for work. Traffic lights, other traffic, policemen, nothing nor nobody would stop him . . as he furiously carved and bludgeoned his way past, well, everything really. The keyboard must`ve been hot. . .

Now, how fast would Beethoven have played this in his day? Something similar?

Consider reposting this in the pianist corner. It might get more attention, since this is more about playing than composing. smile
