Largo

 

a musical term calling for a broad, measured unfolding of the musical fabric. It is used primarily in works of a dignified, ceremonial, and mournful character. In the early 18th century it began to be used also as an indication of a tempo slower than adagio.

The term “larghetto” describes a moderately slow tempo, close to andante.
