Let's Listen: Fur Elise

     This performance emulation was engineered by Adam Anderson.  I'm sure this piece will be familiar to you.  If you have studied piano, you may have happy memories of playing this piece; I know I do.
     (The word "fur" is the German word for "for," and should have an umlaut over the "u," which I do not know how to do when there is not a pencil involved.)
     More of Adam's art with sound can be enjoyed here:

     If you use this download button for the excellent Alfred Brendel recording of this work, you'll have to scroll down a bit, once in iTunes, to get to "Fur Elise."  Of course, you can't go wrong with the whole album; Brendel is a perfect addition to any media player.
