Für Elise for Baritone Ukulele

In this video, Jeff Peterson plays his arrangement of Für Elise for baritone ukulele. Für Elise is one of the most famous compositions by Beethoven. A surprising fact about this piece is that it was not published during Beethoven’s lifetime. In fact it did not appear in print until 1867, 40 years after Beethoven’s death! Moreover, the original manuscript has been lost so this famous piece is actually a reconstruction. With all that said, it is still one of the most recognizable pieces of music from the Western Classical music tradition.

While many people know this piece in its piano version of course, there are many arrangements for other instruments as well. However, this classic takes on new life on ukulele. There is a softness and intimacy to the sound that only the ukulele can achieve.
