This is a beautiful piece, I can't stop listening. I am practicing piano from June 2008 2 hours daily, and I like to learn this extraordinary piece, but I don't know the difficulties in this piece. Can somebody experienced in canon explain me tricks to learn faster this piece. I saw something at the end of score (variations on the canon 20 kb), measures from 85 to 93, ordinary notes with three short lines across which has been played very fast. I don't know how to perform this. Thanks in advance.

I have been working on an easier version of Canon in D and it is a very interesting and challenging piece. It was way above my comfort zone but I can play it quite well now, so obviously I have raised my ability level - another little notch!

Dear Danzack,
The picture on my screen is small, but I think I'm seeing a half note with 3 lines on the stem. This is a form of notation that saves some ink. What it means is that you play that note like a 32nd note for 2 beats. If it had one line, you would play that note like an eighth note for 2 beats, in other words 4 times. If it had 2 lines you'd play like a 16th (which has 2 lines when written in the usual way. And so on.
Hope this helps.

Do you have this book? There are no reviews on Amazon. Are you happy with the arrangements? I often find the "easy" arrangements lacking in fidelity. I get frustrated because I can't play the original but in my mind I keep hearing the original when I'm playing the easy version.

Yes, I bought it a few weeks back. I had never heard the piece before so it was all new to me. My teacher gave me the piece on 24th February and week by week we worked on it together.

My teacher told me a few weeks back that when he gave me this piece he did it deliberately to gauge my seriousness in piano.
He said that if I would stick with the piece and crack it that it showed by true committment to the piano and learning. He said I done well, and although it is not polished it is very good.

To be honest, the piece has no real appeal for me but the learning that it encomapasses is more valuable.

Are you working on the easy version or the original? I agree, this Canon get's old very quickly. I'm surprised you hadn't heard it before - it was overplayed on the radio and TV a few years ago.

Danzack,

Those notes with the three lines through them are an attempt to imitate the sound of a mandolin.

Unless you have very fast and even fingers, this is not going to sound good.

There's a very nice arrangement of the Canon in D that you can download from pianist Walter Cosand's site:

Pachelbel Canon in D

Not easy, but not difficult either.
