In late 2016 we got together to live video record a bunch of popular songs and classical pieces to add to our Youtube channel. We were very lucky to gain access to the barn at Albion Farm Gardens in Woodville, near Maitland in the Hunter Valley.
One of videos we made was of playing the most popular wedding piece ever – The Canon in D by Pachelbel.
Pachelbel Canon in D – Trio vs. Quartet (LIVE VIDEO RECORDING)
For this video we performed as a string trio, and then by adding a viola we played the same piece as a string quartet to demonstrate the difference between the two ensembles. Click here to see the video:
