One of the most beautiful classical pieces in the world.

One of the most beautiful classical piecesOne the most beautiful classical pieces..

Ludwig Van Beethoven is one of the most important composers in the history of music, and one of my absolute favorite! (That is why I named my South Windsor piano studio “Little Beethovens” LLC).

Nobody knows the exact date on which Ludwig was born. He was baptized in the German town of Bonn on December 17, 1770. At first, Beethoven was taught piano and violin by the father. Between the ages of 10 and 22 he studied with Christian Gottlob Neefe, the court organist at Bonn. Neefe recognized Beethoven’s talent and encouraged him as a musician.

But today, I want to share with you one of the most famous, and most mysterious pieces written by Ludwig Van Beethoven: “For Elise.” This piece is a bagatelle (short instrumental piece). The title is “For Elise”, but nobody knows who this was. It was written for a woman called Therese Malfatti. Beethoven asked her to marry him in 1810, but she refused. He gave her a private copy of this piece, which was not published until 1867. Beethoven composed this piece being practically deaf. (Story Behind For Elise). To learn more, please go to: 

This is perhaps on the most well-known pieces in the world. This composition is a common catalyst and inspiration that causes many people to become interested in the piano. The first few notes are instantly recognized by most people who may even be able to play them, and the entire first section is often taught to students starting out. The number of people who can master the entire piece significantly smaller because of the intricate control of touch and emotion is requires to come out right. I hope you will enjoy my performance (and who knows maybe it will inspire YOU to take piano lessons as well... It is never too late!) This melody got me interested to take piano lessons when I was just five years old (I heard it first from my friend, neighbor was taking piano lessons and was studying this piece at that time). And now, being piano teacher for 17 years, I hear almost from every single student I teach asking me to teach them the first, main, part of the timeless classical piece.

Tatyana - I came here from kathy's post.  Wow, that is an awesome performance.  You are so talented.  Yes, that is such a challenging piece and you handle it gracefully.  I had no idea about the history/context behind it, so that is way cool to learn.

Tatyana - That was beautiful.  It has always been a dream of mine to learn to play piano.  I would love to hear you play "Moonlight Sonata."  That is my favorite.  You are so talented!

Tatyana, I have never heard this whole piece! The slower, beginning part was in a commercial when I was a kid. The piano student was being forced to practice it, and he recorded it on a "whatever brand" tape and jumped out the window to play football. I need to listen to more classical music.

Tatyana, you are amazing and a concert pianist to top it off...learned something new about you today.  I agree with you about Beethoven's "For Elise" definitely one of my favorites and certainly one of his more recognizable works.

Hi Tatyana,

I enjoyed your piano concert. Ludwig van Beethoven is one of my favorites too and I know you would make him proud! Through you and your students, his work goes on forever!

Albumblatt "Fur Elise" was always my favorite piano piece too. I especially love how you played the 10th and 11th measures (or are they stanzas)? It's been a long time for me. I need a new piano!!! I need to go back and take lessons again. My piano is flat!

Thanks for the joy of good listening!!!
