Beethoven writes "Für Elise" in 1810

April 27, 1810, Ludwig van Beethoven wrote Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor, more commonly known as "Fur Elise", one of the most popular piano pieces ever written.  The identity of "Elise" is not known for certain but it could have been Therese Malfatti von Rohrenback zu Dezza or Countess Therese von Brunswick.  We probably will never know.
