What is the Meaning & Definition of Tempo

The word tempo is one that is used to make reference to the musical time in which is performed a work or piece of music. The word tempo is precisely related to the idea of time and its origin probably comes from the Italian language which traditionally ran the first operas and works of classical music. The tempo is an intrinsic characteristic of each work and each musical style, by which can be said easily that there are many tempos, each of them specific to a type of musical work. The tempo is one of the essential elements in creating a musical work since it is what allows those who interpret it know at what speed must be carried out each of the notes that make it up.
While the concept of tempo can be used for a relatively wide variety of phenomena in which referred to at the time as a thing or person may have, the use of the same is in the majority of cases in the musical field.
In this sense, the tempo is just weather or the speed in which a musical work should be executed to expose its virtues more clearly. To indicate tempo can have a work leave this set at the beginning of it, which is done in a score of coups or sounds per minute. This calculation is which results in different tempos that they may cause a work to have a completely specific profile, as well as impacting the tempo also in difficulty that the work will represent for those who interpret it (the fastest will be the hardest and the slower easier).
The tempo can give many different options, for example, escaladamente, larghissimo, slow, slow moderato, andante, vivace or prestissimo. Note that all the names of these tempos are also in Italian.
