Pronunciation: /ˌmenō ˈmäsō/

Definition of meno mosso in English:

adverb& adjective

(Especially as a direction) less quickly.
Example sentences
  • Although written in three parts, Andante-Allegro energico, Meno mosso and Tempo I, the concerto was not conceived to have separate movements, and these parts should be considered more as sections within a one movement work, and are joined together without pause.
  • They generally designate a gradual change in tempo; for immediate tempo shifts, composers normally just provide the designation for the new tempo. (Note, however, that when Più Mosso or Meno Mosso appears in large type above the staff, it functions as a new tempo, and thus implies an immediate change.)
