Classical Music/Tempo



Link above

What do you think the tempo of this piece is?
Can you please explain why?

This song seems to be quarter note equals 100 beats per minute. I would call that Andante (walking speed), but my metronome calls that allegretto (a little quick).  Tempo markings are usually just an estimate unless the composer gives a metronome marking.
Hope that helps!
