Format: Paperback
I have always regarded Pachelbel's Canon in D as one of the greatest pieces of music ever written, but this piano arrangement is simply plain and uninteresting. The chords and melodies are weak and empty compared to the celestrial richness of the original. The essense of the song is lost, and the main theme has been dramatically changed.With the exception of the first page, most of the arrangement does not even resemble the original. If you want an accurate and artistic recreation of the masterpiece, don't bother with this mediocre arrangement.
