If I ever learn to play the piano, I will be sure to learn this piece. Do you play the piano? Who are our favorite pianists?

I only had 2 years of piano when I was in college. Reply Thanks for stopping by! Are you still playing piano for fun?? Reply I used to play piano when I was younger. (don’t anymore since I lack a piano) But this was one of my favorite pieces. I also love Chopin and various rag time artists. Reply Chopin and Scott Joplin are some of my favorites as well! Thanks for commenting, AimeeKay! Reply I never knew the name of this piece but I’ve always loved it! Thank you, haha. Reply Glad to be of help, Christine! Thanks for stopping by! Reply Yup, that’s a nice one! I can play it reasonably well. At least I could when we had a piano! I’m trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge this month. Reply Thanks for visiting, Sharkbytes! Are you also participating in the challenge or just visiting blogs? I couldn’t find your blog link. Reply Ha, that brings back memories. My two daughters took piano lessons many years ago, and I heard that one almost incessantly after they had finished two years of lessons. I love it anyway. Ha. Best regards to you. Got a lot of other people to visit. Trying to get to all of them this month. Ruby Reply Für Elise is so good I could listen to it several times a day!! Thanks for visiting, Ruby! Reply It’s one of my favorite piano pieces, so relaxing and intense at the same time. I’m visiting on the A to Z challenge. Great choices. Kathy at Oak Lawn Images Reply Thanks for visiting, Catherine! Glad you like the pick! Reply I don’t play the piano, but I wish I could. A very good friend of mine performs an updated version of Fur Elise that you might enjoy: Sebastian Sidi Check it out and let me know what you think. I’ve posted about Sebastian a few times over the past years and will be again soon to help promote his upcoming PBS special.

I would be interested in watching that special, so I’ll be on the lookout for it. 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
