Was that his final performance speed or was he doing slow practice?

In a similar vein I find this performance of Liszt's transcription of the William Tell Overture hard to believe. The pianist may be Kemal Gekic because he has a version of the entire piece(not just the finale) on YT.

I used to play that Liszt galop way back when I could play better than I do now. If you take the Cziffra video and use the YouTube control to slow it to 3/4 speed, that sounds like about the tempo I was shooting for when I played it. His tempo sounds absurdly fast to me, like a sped-up video...I really don't like it that fast.
