Elise From Scratch

For your practice (if you need it:), here are only the first five notes from Beethoven's Für Elise, played by Detlef Kraus (BTW, my piano teacher's teacher): either for download e.g. into iTunes here, or to listen to in the web browser in a separate tab or window (just click on the link).

E, D#, E, D#, E

Here are four more bars a bit further down, again either for iTunes or to listen to directly in the browser.

Further more, love this improvised version by Yoke Wong:

This is also a wonderful visualisation and way to learn music, IMHO this application alone is worth getting an iPad!

Last, not least, Artur Schnabel, Ivo Pogorelich, and also Detlef Kraus:
