Fur Elise - Bagatelle in A Minor

A few months ago one of my cousins specifically requested that I record Beethoven's famous "Fur Elise"... so here it is!

You can read about some of the historical background on this piece here. This is definitely one of the most famous (if not THE most famous) classical piano works. Beethoven would probably be quite surprised to discover the popularity of this piece - and perhaps a bit dissappointed that it has overshadowed all of his masterpieces in popularity. Nonetheless, I agreed with my cousin that this is an important work to add to my podcast.
