Fur Elise: Retter's version

Known as Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor was thought to be written by a German pianist Ludwig Van Beethoven and composed on April 27, 1810. Many theories say that Beethoven wrote the song for a student named either Elise or Therese, who wasn't very good at playing piano and wrote a simple song for her to play. Once discovering that she marrying someone else, Beethoven made the song harder to play. But what I told you the song was originally nearly impossible to play by anyone? The beginning of the song was inspired by a song Retter wrote, dedicated to his mother, as a birthday gift. The rest of the song was impossible to play by anyone else aside from Retter and his descendants. Not even the most talented pianist ever can make it through half of the song. Retter originally wanted to give his song a different but couldn't think of anything so he said "Fuck it" and wrote down Fur Elise, so people would know it was for his mother, Elise Roth.
