Daniel Dorff has arranged the famed Pachelbel Canon in D as solo with piano accompaniment for all standard instruments, as well as for several ensembles. We now present three new piano trio arrangements with new opportunities for performance. As with a round, each instrument plays the same passages, but starting at different intervals. The ingenious overlapping creates the intricate sounds when the instruments play off of each other in the world's most beloved canon. For intermediate to advanced performers.______________________________________Text from the scanned back cover:JohannPachelbel(1653-1706)Johann Pachelbel wasa leading organist andcomposer of the Baroqueperiod.
