Info

The canon from "Canon and Gigue in D Major" brought German baroque composer Johann Pachelbel world fame. The central idea of the catchy four-bar bass and chord progression is the sequence, the repetition of a musical motif on differing tones. The special effect of the music, perceived by the listener on the one hand as calm, on the other hand as emotive, has been recognized and employed by many artists. Thus, in the last forty years, hundreds of works have been created in different genres, based on the chord sequence of Johann Pachelbel. Many of them can be found in popular music.
 
Composer and arranger Alfred Boesendorfer was also inspired by Pachelbel's idea and created with his FAMOUS CANON a wonderful little work for the eXplora youth band series. From a simple bass line develops an ever denser musical structure, which finally leads to a magnificent tutti. At the same time, Boesendorfer manages to achieve an intense musical effect with a low degree of technical difficulty that will equally impress your musicians and your audience.
