Brinkmann, Fabian; von Loesch, Heinz

This database holds tempo data from 50 performances of Beethoven’s famous piano sonata Op. 57, also known as the Appassionata. Different versions of the score are for example freely available from the Petrucci Music Library (http://imslp.org). For further study, we recommend to either use the edition from Heinrich Schenker including bar numbers, or the edition from Artur Schnabel including his tempo annotation.
