Für Elise Sheet Music


Written by Beethoven, Für Elise is one of the most famous classical pieces of all time. Christy-Lyn’s harp arrangement keeps the familiar tune and feel of the piano piece, but it is adapted to fit really well on the harp, with harp-friendly left hand patterns, and only the most necessary lever changes. If you’ve been looking for an elegant classical piece to play, this is the one!

Christy-Lyn harp plants



Level: Early-intermediate. The main challenge is the quick lever changes but they have been well planned out and clearly marked. The right hand melody is fairly straight forward with some new 4-finger placement shapes. The left hand accompaniment includes 4-2-1 shapes, and both hands play repeated broken octaves on the second page.

Type of harp: Lever harps or pedal harp. The small harp version works for 26 string harps or larger, and the big harp version works for 33 string harps or larger.


Range: Small harp version – Lowest note is E below middle C. Highest note is F two and a half octaves above middle C. Big harp version – Lowest note is E, almost 2 octaves below middle C. Highest note is E, 2 and a half octaves above middle C.

Levers/pedals: It is in the key of A minor (same as C major). There are multiple G and D sharp lever (or pedal) changes in this piece.

Product: PDF download of 2 pages. Fingering and bracketing are included enough times to indicate what is required, but not throughout the piece, so that it isn’t too cluttered. Lever changes are clearly marked.
