For Elisa or also called For Therese WoO 59 (Für Elise or Für Therese in German) is a solo piano trifle composed in the minor by the German composer Ludwig van Beethoven. The piece was first published in 1867 in a transcription of Ludwig Nohl, supposedly based on an autograph manuscript of whose existence there is no proof. The musicologist and pianist Luca Chiantore has demonstrated in his monograph Beethoven at the piano (Barcelona, 2010) that there is enough evidence to affirm that Beethoven was not the one who gave the definitive form to this work, and that Ludwig Nohl was based, in fact, on The outlines of the well-known manuscript 116 of the Beethoven Haus.
