I’ve been practising Baermann’s Romanze for a few weeks now. What tempo should it be? I have listened to recordings which vary from a very slow 95 bpm to 110 which seems quite fast.
In this case, it is a matter of what you think the speed should be, what suits your temperament, and what speed allows you to express the music without strain.
Music can be played too fast without reference to letting the music to speak.
