Bagatelle No.25 in A minor WoO.59 (a.k.a. Fur Elise), by Ludwig van Beethoven

From Wikipedia:

Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor (WoO 59 and Bia 515) for solo piano, commonly known as "Für Elise" or "Fuer Elise" (English: "For Elise", commonly misspelled "Fur Elise"), is one of Ludwig van Beethoven's most popular compositions. It is usually classified as a bagatelle, but it is also sometimes referred to as an Albumblatt.

The score was not published until 1867, 40 years after the composer's death in 1827. The discoverer of the piece, Ludwig Nohl, affirmed that the original autographed manuscript, now lost, was dated 27 April 1810.
