    For Elise and for all

    Ludwig van Beethoven was a composer who brought us much joy with his piano miniature For Elise. His other pieces delight both young and old. How did Beethoven come up with the idea of such ear-pleasing music? Just like other composers, he probably first imagined different sounds, their timbres and what stories they tell. Beethoven then formed these sounds into pieces, which he wrote down in notation. So even in our times we can play or sing Beethoven’s music and enjoy it whenever we feel like it.
