Pachelbel: Canon in D (arr. by Oborin)
Piano Sheet Music to Download and Print or to View in Mobile Devices
Pachelbel’s most famous work, the beautiful and hypnotic canon in D never fails to fascinate its listener.
The work, originally scored for three violins and basso continuo is presented here in two very nice arrangements for piano by the distinguished Russian pianists Sergey Liapunov (1859-1924) and Lev Oborin (1907-1974). Liapunov’s version
is a fairly complete transcription of Pachelbel’s original, while Oborin has shortened and simplified it to meet the needs of the beginner or intermediate pianist. Whichever version you choose, it will enable you to enter the meditative mood created by the basso ostinato in the bass – this two-bar melody in the left hand is played 28 times (12 in Oborin’s version), but be prepared to want to go on playing it forever. For the right hand, both versions are useful studies for improving essential elements of piano technique: finger, double note and chord playing, touch and articulation, voice playing, and so on.

| Pachelbel Canon in D arr. by Oborin - does mp3 match the score?

|Hi, I have a question about piano performance of Pachelbel Canon in D (arr. by Oborin) that is here on Pianostreet. Performance in mp3 is very bright, piano beautifully "sings". I am beginner and have only electronic piano (Korg M3, but I think that its sound is one of the best). But when I play this piece, it sounds more "muddled" than in that in mp3. I also played along with mp3 and it is big dissonance every note. I played with settings and discovered that it sound very similar when I set transpose +2 semitones. Is it possible that this piece is played transposed and not in D major? It also sounds better if I set Werkmeister temperament instead of Equal and general tune lower by 20 cents (to 435 Hz).

|Hello Pianostreet Members,
I am hoping you can help me. I am a self taught piano player, so have difficulty reading music but with a lot of patience, enjoy learning medium level classic pieces.
I cannot get the fingering right on the first page. I was hoping someone would be kind enough to help me?
Thanks for your time reading this request.
