One of the most famous classical compositions in the word, beautifully arranged for piano and orchestra. Stewie and I are using this in the wedding for when we sign the register.
Beethoven wrote the Bagatelle No 24 in A Minor (commonly known as Für Elise) in 1810 however it was not published until 1867 - 40 years after his death! The true identity of 'Elise' is only known by Beethoven himself however one theory is that her name is actually Therese Malfatti von Rohrenbach zu Dezza who turned down Beethoven's marriage proposal in favour of an Austrian nobleman. Beethoven is well known for continuing to compose music even after the loss of his hearing relying solely on the music inside of his imagination and the vibrations he could sense through the piano and floor!
