Bach’s crab canon from “The Musical Offering”

Posted by

I remember coming across this piece a few years ago and being totally blown away. I’d never heard of a crab canon before, and I was stunned at how a piece of music could be symmetrical like this, and sound so beautiful in both directions, backwards and forwards. This is what inspired me to create a book of crab canons, which I hope to have published before the end of September.

The piece is from “The Musical Offering.”
