How do you pronounce Johann Pachelbel?

Iowa Public Radio has a great resource for pronunciation of Western classical music names and terms; they give the following...

Johann Pachelbel : YO-hahn pah-KELL-b'l

...which certainly seems like the correct German pronunciation, but they note that in the United States you will frequently hear an Americanized version,

YO-hahn PAH-k'l-bell

which I guess reflects our tendency to shift the emphasis to the first syllable. You might get some funny looks in the U.S. if you use the full German pronunciation.
