Ludwig Van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. He was an important figure in the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western classical music, and remains one of the most acclaimed and influential of all composers. “Für Elise” is one of his most popular compositions. Für Elise in english stands for ‘For Elise’. It is not certain who Elise was though some have suggested her to be his fifth mistress. Enjoy!
