5-Year-Old Piano Prodigy Goes Viral With Mozart Performance

A 5-year-old piano prodigy goes viral online with his amazing Mozart performance. Check out this video to see the little boy’s phenomenal skills!

Alberto Cartuccia Cingolani is a five-year-old Italian pianist who only started learning how to play the piano in 2020. Recently, he performed in a music competition, and his incredible rendition of Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 16 in C major wowed the audience.

A video of his performance was shared online, and it has since garnered over 5 million views on Twitter. Alberto comes from a musical family. His father works as a music teacher and his mother is a singing instructor. When he was 3 years old, Alberto’s parents first introduced him to the piano and quickly saw that the boy had a natural affinity for the instrument.

“He started playing during the months of the first lockdown,” shared Alessia Cingolani, Alberto's mother. “I was always at home, so we started playing with a small keyboard, in order to do something stimulating. From there I realized that Alberto was well suited. [Doing this, my] husband and I noticed that he had perfect pitch. For a year and a half now, [Alberto] has been doing remarkable things, both for his age and for the time it took him to learn. Even though he still doesn't know how to read [music] notes well, indeed almost not at all, he takes his position on the keyboard and repeats the pieces. He is very instinctive.”

When watching the video of Alberto play, it is amazing to see his tiny hands fly across the piano keys with such ease. He is truly a natural! And it is astounding to know that he cannot read music yet and still is able to play such complex pieces with just hearing the notes and playing by ear.

We hope that you enjoyed watching this wonderful performance today by this 5-year-old piano prodigy!
