#BeautifulBoy #ReactsToMusic #ClassicalEmotions #MoonlightSonata #Beethoven

My nephew recorded his son's reaction to hearing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata for the first time and NewsFlare asked permission to share the YouTube video with some clients. DailyMail UK picked it up and since then, other news outlets have been sharing it, in many languages. It's picking up momentum on Twitter and has been spreading across the Internet. People want to see something sweet and want to know that Music Moves.

Some people have commented that the child is crying because the music is played badly. I won't respond to their comments, but I will say that this is a student recital, not a professional performance. The young pianist may have made some mistakes, but the child still performed well enough for the toddler here to be moved by the maestro Beethoven's intention hundreds of years ago.
