Beethoven – Für Elise in A minor- Ivo Pogorelich, Piano

Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor (WoO 59 and Bia 515) for solo piano, commonly known as Für Elise or Fuer Elise is one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s most popular compositions. It was not published during his lifetime, only being discovered (by Ludwig Nohl) forty years after his death, and may be termed either a Bagatelle or an Albumblatt. The identity of “Elise” is unknown; researchers have suggested Therese Malfatti, Elisabeth Röckel or Elise Barensfeld. – Ivo Pogorelich WikipediaIvo Pogorelich Website
