More than just the canon
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Pachelbel's canon is so lovely that I always figured he must have written other good chamber music. But until this album I'd failed to find it. The trio sonatas and parties are pleasant melodies and make gratifying listening.The album also, inevitably?, contains the canon. But here too there's a reward. The canon was popularized by a Viennese string orchestra that toured the US c. 1973 and played the canon at a 6-7 minute pace, yet today's chamber performers prefer a pace of about 2.5 to 3 minutes. This rendition is nearly 4 minutes and done with a liveliness of tone that reminds us why the canon is fun."
