Beethoven's Fur Elise was featured in Lang Lang's album Piano Book in 2019, which takes the pianist back to pieces that first inspired him to become a musician. Many listeners might recognize music from their own piano journey, from Beethoven's Fur Elise to Chopin's Raindrop Prelude and Bach's Minuet No. 1 in G Major.
