The Worst Version Of Pachelbel’s Canon

Variations On The KanonPachelbel’s canon is a classical piece most people will recognize, its chord progression (D major, A major, B minor, F# minor, G major, D major, E minor, A major) being emulated often in soundtracks; but it IS a nice piece, and I usually enjoy hearing and playing (on the piano) different versions of it.

Unfortunately, I recently stumbled upon the worst version I’ve heard: George Winston’s Variations On The Kanon (click the link to hear a midi version). It’s a butchery. It’s SO New Age it’ll make ya puke, and I’m not against New Age music; I like William Ackerman and a lot of others, but this has got to be the epitome of bad New Age music.

This has been a public service warning.

  1. That’s one of the few songs that I can almost play on the piano. And I learned it from a George Winston CD.
