5-year-old Alberto Cartuccia Cingolani performing some Mozart.

  1. this is beautiful! can anyone experienced with pianos tell me why he didn’t need the pedals? i feel like i almost always see them being used.

  2. The pedals are used to make or stifle the notes being struck. The far left is the soft pedal which shifts the keys and alters tone. The middle pedal works as sort of a muter for notes. The right is the sustaining pedal that makes a sort of choir echo with the notes bring played. The left and middle pedals make notes at average length, but the middle will cut them short depending on how you apply it. The piece the kid was playing required none of that bc it's pretty fast paced and the sound wouldn't have sounded as (for lack of better term) clean. If you've ever wondered how a pianist can hold a note for a while on the piano, that's how! Pressing a key without the pedals just makes a regular length note as seen in the video! However, that is also dependent on the tuning of the piano and the strikes of the pianist. I love pieces that incorporate the sustaining pedal bc of its angelic effect.

  3. The use of pedals can be demoted in the music, however not all music requires them. In the case of Mozart, he did use pedals (operated by knee) in some of his music, but it is always up to the discression of the preformer.

  4. On the one hand, Mozart has some of the simplest melodies. On the other, I don't know many five year olds that could play chopsticks with half this level of skill.

  5. I was playing that sonata in college as a piano minor. The left hand part is really tough on adult size hands……let alone a 5 year old. He is amazing!

  6. Kids a rockstar can't wait till he older and starts composing his own music, very talented. Pretty sure he will become one of the youngest millionaires club
