Fur Elise last measure
« on: February 13, 2018, 12:27:02 AM »
I have 2 Alfred piano method books with Fur Elise.  An older book shows the RH in the last measure playing one 8th note A.  The Alfred mastering the Piano shows RH playing Middle C and A together (6th notes).   My students Casio (free) piano book also shows C and A played together in the last measure.  Does anyone have an Urtext version or know which is correct?  Thanks.

You may be able to get a free Urtext version of this here at Pianostreet.  3 free downloads for new members?  Sorry of this doesn't help.  Others may know the answer to your question.

The copy of Fur Elise that I have is only note A for right hand. I got it from forelise.com

I would Suggest that you look at the earlier arrangements found on IMSLP.com   This is my “go to “ site to check edition differences

The urtext editions I have consulted have the A only. The C could be a later addition to underline the minor mode.
