Italian 'speed' musical terms.
« on: February 08, 2020, 04:04:18 pm »
Here are 12 Italian musical terms, that are regularly used to define the speed at which the piece of music should be played.  They are currently listed in alphabetical order.

Rearrange them in 'speed' order, with the slowest one first, increasing to the fastest.

Don't cheat.


     This is a good test for your musical knowledge.

            Adagio
            Allegretto
            Allegro
            Andante
            Grave
            Larghetto
            Largo
            Lento
            Moderato
            Prestissimo
            Presto
            Vivace (or Vivo)

Feel free to post your effort below.

The correct order will appear shortly.
