kid cries at beethoven

The music of Beethoven is often flagged for its extraordinary emotional power - but look how affecting it is even to a really tiny kid.

When youTuber Josh Noftz took his two-year-old son Tyler to his sister’s piano recital, he didn’t know the music of Beethoven would have such a strong effect on his son.

To be honest, though, the Moonlight Sonata does this to all of us at some point…

Even on the youngest of music lovers, the power of Beethoven’s sombre sonata is evident. Our advice and assurance to Tyler is that these things happen - sometimes, Beethoven just gets you right in the feels.
