La Tendre

(Christoph Nichelmann)

La Tendre is a relatively slow movement from a harpsichord suite by Christoph Nichelmann (1717- 1762) in an arrangement for three guiitars by Andrew Forrest.

Christoph Nichelmann was a composer that worked in between the Baroque and Classical eras. He was a contemporary of Bach and Telemann and achieved a career as second harpsichordist at the court of Frederic the Great of Prussia.

In La Tendre the tempo is quite comfortable, but that does not mean -particularly for guitar three - that it’s holiday time for you! Make a nice game of the question-answer passages between the parts.
