    I have to choose a piece to play in my school's concert/ show next term. I'm torn between these two:
    • Pachelbel's Canon in D
    • Beethoven's Fur Elise (I know that the 'u' should have an umlaut)


    I guess I'm asking: Which one would you choose?
    I love both and can't decide!

    Thanks in advance :]

    It depends what instruments will be playing. Personally I think Pachelbel's Canon should exclusively played by a string quartet, no other ensemble has the same effect really. It's lovely though, very relaxing and melodic.

    Fur Elise is OK, I'm not a massive fan because I've never thought it was very tuneful....It's the one I'd go for though if you're playing on piano.

    I agree with the poster above, it depends on instrument. Out of the two, Canon is my favourite ... it's one of the most gorgeous pieces of music ever

    If it's piano, play Fur Elise, as it'll be easier I imagine.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that I'll be playing the chosen piece on the piano.

    I agree with the previous posters in that Canon in D, sounds brilliant when performed by a string quartet. But I also think that there are some nice piano arrangements out there

    I quite like Fur Elise, but I'm not as keen on the 'tune'.

    Thanks for replies everyone!

    I might be leaning towards Canon

    As you're doing it on the piano, Beethoven.
