Upon first glance, Elisey Mysin of Moscow, Russia appears to be just like any other little boy. But behind the cherubic face is a mind capable of producing incredible aural beauty.
You see, while the 8-year-old is small, talent is packed into his tiny frame. People from around the world can’t help but marvel whenever he sits in front of a piano — even if his feet don’t quite reach the pedals.
According to his family, Elisey loved music before he was even born. Whenever his big sister played the piano during her mother’s pregnancy, the baby boy “danced” inside her womb. As he grew up, he continued listening to his sister and then began playing himself when he was just 3 years old. It wasn’t long before his parents realized their little Mozart was a prodigy.
When he was 5, Elisey played alongside pianist Denis Matsuev in a Russian television competition called “Blue Bird,” dazzling viewers. Since then, his talent (and his fame) has only grown. Now he studies at the Central Music School at the Moscow Conservatory and goes on performing tours.
Earlier this year, the young pianist entranced listeners once again with a concert in the Russian city of Naberezhnye Chelny. Thankfully, someone caught the awesome moment on video! While he waits for his cue from the accompanying orchestra, he looks out of place — like a child of one of the professionals. But it’s clear who the real star is as soon as he joins in.
With no sheet music in sight, Elisey’s fingers fly across the keys. His perfect rendition of Mozart’s “Concerto No. 3 in D Major” has the entire audience captivated. And nobody is ready to see him go when he’s done! The crowd practically demands an encore — and Elisey is more than happy to give them one.
Clearly, this kid is going places! He’s on track to becoming one of the best pianists in Russia. And who knows? Maybe one day he’ll be the best in the world!
