An attempt were made to record the 1st movement of Beethoven’s Op. 57, with the objective of performing it as close to Beethoven’s will as possible, in the tradition of the ”historically informed performance” movement.The result of evaluating source material rendered a list of the most relevant material for this study, and hopefully that might prove useful for other studies with similar objective concering HIP and composer-intention based ’autenticity’.However, Beethoven’s will was only vaguely captured in the limited source material accounted for in this study, rendering it moderate-to-small reliability. It’s probably possible to achieve a higher degree of goal achievement, given more time and through the utilization of music psychology to further extrapolate the detailed parameters of Beethoven’s presumed extramusical will.The recording made was not to my satisfaction and has strengthened my view that the interpreter should take council from the collected knowledge of scholarly sources but must ultimately remain free in whether and how to utilize that knowledge.Lastly, I’ve measured the bpm in the resulting recording with a error margin of ±0,02 s. per time section selection and briefly discussed deviations from my interpretation intention.
