Random information on the term “Slow movement”:

A slow movement is a form in a multi-movement musical piece. Generally, the second movement of a piece will be written as a slow movement, although composers occasionally write other movements as a slow movement as well. The tempo of a slow movement can vary from largo to andante. It is usually in the dominant, subdominant, parallel, or relative key of the musical work’s main key.

The general layout of a four-movement piece is as follows:

However, composers sometimes remove, add or re-arrange movements, such as Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, which begins with the slow movement. When a piece has additional movements, they may also be written as a slow movement.

A slow movement is usually written in one of three forms: compound or “large” ternary, sonata form without development, and theme and variations.

Large ternary is the most common form used for a slow movement. It consists of three parts, labeled ABA. The first and third part are almost identical, whereas the middle part is contrasting. If the starting key is a major key, the middle part is typically written in a minor key; if the starting key is a minor key, the middle part is typically written in a major key. The keys do not have to have the same tonic. If the middle part is written in a major key, it is often labeled Maggiore. If it is written in a minor key, then it is labeled Minore. The final part is always a return of the first part, but frequently has additional ornaments and small phrases added on.
