Moonlight Sonata 1st mov. | L.v.Beethoven | Piano

Piano Sonata No. 14 (Op. 27 No. 2) more known as Moonlight Sonata is one of the most famous piano pieces by Beethoven. It was completed in 1801 and dedicated in 1802 to countess Giulietta Guicciardi. [Adapted from Wikipedia]

Here is my second attempt to play the first movement of this masterpiece. I've chosen a more usual tempo this time :)

The piece has 69 measures with 4 times each measure. I've played it in approximately 5 minutes that corresponds to (5*60) = 300 seconds. Now if I do 300/(69*4) I get approximately 1.087 seconds per tempo. So in 60 seconds I have (60/1.087) = 55 bpm.

Check out my 32 bpm version:
