Für Elise: D or E?

Some food for thought for our piano players who like to play (or hope to learn) at least the first section of Beethoven’s Für Elise:

Beethoven, Für Elise WoO 59 – Do you strike the right note?

So what do you do? In the end, you choose. Teacher has played both in the past and probably now favours the D, but both sound musical and, on the evidence currently available to us, it’s not ‘wrong’ either way.
