Stories about people's Für Elise experiences
Remembering when my sister practiced Für Elise
This story was submitted by Niada and was added around August 2011.
I don't remember how old I was when I first heard Fur Elise, but I was young, not older than 7 or 8 years old. It was in my sister's room where I would sit on her bed and listen to her practice playing. In my memory, the song was magic, always conjuring images of bright colors and a garden of flowers in the impressionist style of artists like Monet. In fact, I think the reason why Fur Elise always brought up those images was because of my sister's cozy comforter; it had the same colors and flowers as the images of my memory. In any case, Fur Elise was one of the first classical pieces that I came to love dearly.
