Canon and Gigue for Four Cellos

By Johann Pachelbel

4 cellos
Composed by Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706). Published by Elegant Cello (EL.PACHELBELFOURCELLOS).


Finally, revenge of the cellists! A four-part version of the famous Canon where cellos one, two and three play the coveted violin lines. (Part four is the infamous ground bass line necessary to a complete performance!) The Canon is well within the reach of intermediate cellists and maintains the original key of D Major. Pachelbel wrote a short and delightful Gigue along with his famous Canon. The Gigue is included in this transcription for four cellos.
