Obs.: Pachelbel's Canon is the first of two movements in the composer's Kanon und Gigue für 3 Violinen mit Generalbaß, PWC 37, T 337, PC 358. It was originally composed for three violins and basso continuo. This score is an arrangement for two violins and piano. In this arrangement, the piano part plays the role of the third violin as well as the continuo. Pachelbel's Canon is an authentic canon, because the three violins play the exact same part, at intervals of two measures. It also has elements of a chaconne, namely a repeated short harmonic progression, a stepwise descending melody (as in the first two measures of the violin part), as well as a repetitive bass line.
Included: Full score and separated parts for each instrument
