About "Beethoven: Fur Elise": INTIMATE & ENIGMATIC, Beethoven wrote this tuneful classic in 1810 for Therese Malfatti

, aka Elise. Today, it is his most popular piano piece based on sheet music sales. After a repeated introduction of the pining main theme, it alternates with two episodes of contrasting material. The first is a brief lyrical passage, made even sunnier by the surrounding dark moods. The second episode is an excited declaration over agitated bass. ID: avwaauql
