What you've said is more than the truth! So many people who aren't classically trained/ who's extent of classical music knowledge doesn't go beyond Beethoven's Für Elise won't know that slower pieces are much more difficult to play well. We can't blame them of course, but we better!
Every wrong note and rhythm can be heard; there's no skidding over notes unlike quicker pieces. Yes, fast peices performed well most definitely requires the performer to have good stamina and technique, but slow peices demand precesion in rhythm and greater attention to detail at times, because there's hardly room for error.
