Hold Your Horses!!

The tempo of a piece of music is what most people usually fight about in classical piano music in their piano lessons. Tempo or speed, is a sensitive topic for many pianists who feel they have found the ideal tempo to the dismay of others who disagree. Any kind of music can be transposed into a different tempo and, while the score may be correctly translated into a different speed of playing, this can totally change the mood of the music. Different pianists will have entirely different tempos of difficult pieces such as Beethoven’s piano sonatas.

One of my favorite hobbies in learning to play classical piano music, is to find the very best recordings of past virtuosos of the golden age and compare them with the modern recording of modern-day classical pianists. This is something we attempt to do in the classical music section of our site anyway. But nothing can take place of doing your own research. Your piano teacher can give you excellent guidelines as to what you should sensitize your ear to hear for, as well as many of the tips in our piano music blog.
