Pachelbel’s famous Canon in D was largely forgotten about after he died until the piece was revived during the 1960’s. Now it’s popular throughout the world. Baroque composers often wrote contrapuntal textures over repeated bass lines using ostinato, Passacaglia or Chaconne patterns in the manner of Pachelbel and the approach has much to offer composers today. This livestream is devoted to discovering what Pachelbel and other Baroque composers can teach us about how to develop ideas around fixed patterns.
