For Elise My performance of Fur Elise. (I am shocked, actually, that no one else has uploaded an MP3 of this piece.)
As you may have noticed, the video for this MP3 is available again. I am happy to say that I heard back from the agency that was (erroneously) claiming my audio and had the matter cleared up. :-)
(Sadly, though, my joke in my other posting of Fur Elise about the ornaments and so on being proof it was me was NOT a joke - its the truth. :-( This seems to be a problem I will run into again for as long as I am posting classical music. Sigh.... )
Ah yes, speaking of such things, my audio got claimed AGAIN a week later - by someone else. I felt like I have a child that is getting kidnapped over and over again! :-(
But I am happy to say after sending an e-mail to the company involved that the claim was dropped after only one day. :-)
(I sent them an e-mail to thank them & they sent back & said that they felt that most people in the music business would sympathize with the furstration of Classical musicians and recording matches.)
For Elise Another performance of Fur Elise, but with a lot of ornamentation and rhythmic retouching thrown in to prove that I am the performer. ;-)
I dont know if Beethoven would have approved, but he himself was a famous improvisationist, so hopefully he would forgive me.
