Here is my attempt to play the first movement of this masterpiece. I've chosen a very slow tempo but I have to admit I don't play this tempo always, sometimes I play it faster other times slower... Well slower than this maybe not! :P
To see how slow I've really played let's do some calculations. The piece has 69 measures with 4 times each measure. I've played it in approximately 8 and half minutes that corresponds to (8*60+30) = 510 seconds. Now if I do 510/(69*4) I get approximately 1.85 seconds per tempo. So in 60 seconds I have (60/1.85) = 32 bpm! It's really slow!
Anyway, I hope you like it and remember to comment and subscribe to my channel :)
