Für Elise Recording by Valentina Lisitsa
Valentina Lisitsa, one of the incredibly gifted pianists of our time, has been kind and provided me a recording of Für Elise to help spread music. Lisitsa was born in Ukraine but moved to the United States in 1991 after winning a duo-piano competition with her partner Alexei Kuznetsoff. She has since established a reputation as concert pianist with several releases showing her sense of music and serene technique. You can download the free recording of Für Elise below in MP3 format, and I've taken the liberty to also link some of Valentina's other projects in case you're interested in more of her work.
You are welcome to send comments about this recording which should be playable on most computers (and devices such as iPod). I also have the sheet music freely available if you're interested in playing the piece yourself.

More with Valentina Lisitsa
Apart from extending my warmest thank you to Valentina and Alexei for their kindness in making this page possible and giving people a rich music experience, I'd like to point out some of the other work Valentina Lisitsa has done. She has amongst other things recorded several DVDs of her playing. You can have a closer look and/or purchase them by clicking the covers below.
The first is a collection of Franz Schubert's last songs transcribed to solo piano by Franz Liszt, then there is a collection of pieces by various artists ranging from Liszt to Rachmaninoff, and finally a disc with Chopin études. All of the DVDs are of good quality. If you want to learn more about the pianist Valentina Lisitsa, please visit her official web site.
