About

The precise realization of Beethovenís tempo indications - the composerís metronome markings, which have been so often questioned, are for Bertrand de Billy an important precondition for his own interpretory style; not out of pedantry or false musicological ambition, but because this is the only way to maintain a workís true formal and structural relationships.
 
In the first movement of Beethovenís Third symphony, for example, a tempo that is too slow disturbs the structure of the entire movement, which has led to the arbitrary tradition of not repeating the exposition, a repetition which Beethoven demanded. Bertrand de Billy conducts the Eroica after an intensive study of the score that due to its popularity is often performed without much reflection.
