    This is an outstanding modern arrangement of Canon in D for solo piano. There are references to thematic variations by Pachelbel and George Winston, along with many new takes on this well-known canon. Although listed for intermediate and advanced players, this is definitely a difficult arrangement suited for more...

    advanced players, especially given the syncopation throughout. If I had one complaint, I wish there were a bit more guidance as to how some of the sections should be played. That said, the mp3 link clarifies how the transcriber wishes it to be performed. This version takes me about 8.5-9 minutes to play, so I will definitely add this to my wedding playlist. All in all, a refreshing take on this well-known classic.
