Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor (WoO 59), commonly known as “Für Elise”, is one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s most popular compositions. The score was not published until 1867, 40 years after the composer’s death in 1827. The discoverer of the piece, Ludwig Nohl, affirmed that the original autographed manuscript, now lost, was dated 27 April 1810. It is not certain who “Elise” was. It has been suggested that Ludwig Nohl may have transcribed the title incorrectly and the original work may have been named “Für Therese”, a reference to a friend and student of Beethoven’s to whom he supposedly proposed in 1810, though she turned him down. According to a 2010 study by Klaus Martin Kopitz, there is evidence that the piece was instead written for the German soprano singer Elisabeth Röckel. “Elise” had been a friend of Beethoven’s since 1808.
