largo

tempo instructions, beats per minute

Largo, from the Italian for 'broad,' is a tempo indication meaning very slow (40–66 bpm) – slower than adagio. Sometimes largetto is used to indicate a metronome speed of 60–66 bpm, and largo to indicate 60 or less. An example of a piece in this tempo is the second movement of Dvorák's Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 (The New World).
