WARNING!! A great cd BUT....
David A. Kirkwood | Charlotte County, FL | 03/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I know I gave this cd 5 stars; it deserves it. Every piece is so finely textured and lush. BUT the version of the Canon on this cd, as beautiful as it is, IS NOT the original version recorded by Paillard. This cd contains a new version which has been slightly re-arranged and speeded up a bit. The version on this cd is a minute shorter than the original which can be found on the ERATO cd, "PACHELBEL CANON/ FASCH/CONCERTO". Definitely buy the Erato cd first--this contains the "must-have" rendition of the Canon. But, of course, after you buy that one, you will probably want to buy this one as well. I have yet to hear any piece of music done by Jean-Francois Paillard that I have not loved."
If only there were more stars to give!

"When I was young, my parents had a vinyl version of this album, and it was played more than any other in my house. This CD version is only better. I cannot reccommend this CD enough. I have had to buy several copies of this, because people who never liked classical before hear it, and I give them a copy. This recording should be the first CD in any collection of music. It is simply one of the most sublime recordings ever!"
My favorite classical/baroque cd

"I original grew up on baroque and classical music as a child because my parents were/are big fans of the music. Over the years, my tastes branched out into rock and roll and other genres of music but I always seem to come back to baroque and classical music. Over the years I have bought a quite a few classical cds. Some were good and some were mediocre. "Pachelbel Canon, Albinoni Adagio and Other Baroque Melodies" is by far my favorite of all the baroque/classical cds I have bought over the years. I was first given the cassette version in my freshman year in college by my parents. I eventually bought the cd version a couple of years ago. Pachelbel's "Canon" is definitely my all time favorite baroque song. The version on this album is by far my favorite arrangement. I still get the chills every time I listen to the song. I can truly never get sick and tired of listening to "Canon". When I first listened to this album, it was the first time I heard Albinoni's "Adagio". It is truly one of the most beautiful pieces in baroque history. Just like "Canon", I love the arrangements for Bach's "Jesus bleibet meine Freude" and"Wachet auf". The arrangements for those two songs simply takes my breath away. I have listened to countless different arrangements of those two songs but none have come close to the versions I have heard on this album. I may not be a classical/baroque afficienado but I certianly know what I like and I like what I heard on this album."
