Hi people! Sorry for the long haul given that our last video. We have actually been hectic recording tons of new things and we're excited to share everything with you very soon!
Some of you understand that we periodically bet wedding events. As you can envision, we get a LOT of requests for Canon in D, and we found that there were no great arrangements available anywhere for piano and cello! Difficult to think provided its appeal. So we chose to make our own! We tried to stick as carefully to the initial as possible (which was composed for 3 violins and basso continuo), and we performed it * not * at a snail's rate so the bride-to-be can really make it down the aisle without putting everyone to sleep.( Yeah, we stated it! Nobody likes a slow processional!) Also, the top grievance about this piece from cellists is always how booooring it is to play since they actually have to play the same 8 bass notes over and over for the whole piece. Problem fixed with this arrangement because the cello never needs to play the bass!( The piano does, however we get great deals of other enjoyable things too so it's okay!) So for all you artists out there playing wedding events, we hope you delight in playing this plan a little more than the ones you were used to … You can get it from www.musicnotes.com. Make certain to let us know in the comments if you do!
