約翰·帕海貝爾 D大調卡農與吉格 / John Pachelbel's Canon & Gigue in D major

* Please also read Space's November 26, 2010 article: "依稀記得的旋律" *


I was inspired by Brother Space's article and decided to find out more abt this masterpiece. Above are the three versions of the same music (more or less) with the last one showing the piano keyboard. Enjoy !!!

根據「維基百科」"約翰·帕海貝爾 D大調卡農與吉格":

D大調卡農與吉格(德語:Kanon und Gigue in D-Dur für drei Violinen und Basso Continuo),也稱約翰·帕海貝爾卡農(Pachelbel's Canon),是德國作曲家約翰·帕海貝爾最著名的作品。因為它是最著名的卡農樂曲,有時也常以「卡農」代指。然而實際上卡農(Canon)並非曲名,而是一種曲式。卡農在字面上是「輪唱」的意思,吉格(Gigue)則是舞曲。D大調卡農作於1680年前後,是巴洛克時期的室內樂作品,採用數字低音手法,供三個小提琴演奏。它曾被改編為多個不同版本,供不同樂器組合演奏。它原有吉格舞曲伴隨,但現在很少演奏這段。
According to Wikipedia "Pachelbel's Canon":

Pachelbel's Canon, also known as Canon in D major (Kanon und Gigue für 3 Violinen mit Generalbaß in German) (PWC 37, T. 337, PC 358), is the most famous piece of music by German Baroque composer Johann Pachelbel. It was originally scored for three violins and basso continuo and paired with a gigue in the same key. Like most other works by Pachelbel and other pre-1700 composers, the Canon remained forgotten for centuries and was rediscovered only in the 20th century. Several decades after it was first published in 1919, the piece became extremely popular, and today it is frequently played at weddings and included on classical music compilations, along with other famous Baroque pieces such as Air on the G String by Johann Sebastian Bach.

喜歡小提琴的版本多一點,
幾個小提琴來回轉奏,
蕩氣迴腸、氣勢不絶,
百聽不厭!

我已經加入 魔術師 提供的喇叭協奏版本,作曲的 Johann Pachelbel,這個 master piece,利用不同的組合,聽出耳油!

魔術師 said...

你知唔知點解吹最大號喇叭的樂手吹到成日要睇錶? 吹吹下仲要俾個花王吹?

如果你細心聽,就會發覺係因為佢吹來吹去都係得8粒音,悶到死!
