Text markup, IIRC.  It's in one of the "text" sections in the reference manual.

Three options:
- Place a mark (see the reference manual) in every single part of your piece.
Print parts.  Then go back and comment out the marks in all parts apart from
the first one, then print a score.
- use something like \header {meter="Allegro (quarter = 120)"
- define a "tempopart" part which looks like this:
tempopart = \notes { s1^#(note (something "= 120) see-refman) }
In your parts, include both the actual part and tempopart.
\context Staff < \violinpart \tempopart>
In the full score, only include the \tempopart in the first staff.

I've done all three of them, and they all have disadvantages.
