Indian Teen Piano Prodigy Wows At The Ellen Show, Plays Mozart Blindfolded

by Webdesk


Lydian Nadhaswaram, 13-year-old from Chennai, India recently wowed everyone with his performance on ‘The World’s Best’ show. 


The teen pianist wowing the world with his appearance on the US talent show The World's Best, made his debut on The Ellen Show.


A video shared by Ellen DeGeneres on Facebook with the caption “Lydian is only 13 years old, and he can play Mozart blindfolded. I’m 61 and I can’t spell Mozart blindfolded,” has gone viral with over 2.6 million views.


Which features a segment from the show where Lydian stuns the audience by playing Mozart's "Turkish March" blindfolded.


On the Show, Lydian tells Ellen that he can play two songs on two different pianos at once. "So, it's like, uh, for example in my left hand I can play Mission Impossible, and on my right hand, I can play Harry Potter simultaneously. So, both are different time signatures," he added.


When asked what his dreams were for the future, the young musician shared, “I want to go to the moon along with my piano and play Beethoven’s 'Moonlight Sonata.'”

“The World’s Best” airs Wednesday nights on CBS.
