Für Elise (Bagatelle No. 25 in A Minor)
by Ludwig van Beethoven
composed in 1810
published in 1867
Like yesterday's post on Eine Kleine Nightmusik, Für Elise gained popularity only after being discovered and published fifty years after the death of the Composer. In 1867, Ludwig van Beethoven had already established his canonical status in the realm of Music. Fur Elise has it almost two to one over Moonlight Sonata on Last FM in terms of weekly plays.
