PEACHTREE CITY | Piano prodigy plays Carnegie Hall, explains Einstein

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. -- He's a seven-year-old from Peachtree City who just played on what may be the world's most prestigious musical stage: Carnegie Hall.

And music's just the start of what makes Adrian Romoff unique.

Spend a little time with him, and you'll realize the piano prodigy is also a student of the legends.

One second, Adrian discusses Mozart; the next, he is referencing Vladimir Horowitz. And his favorite saying about Beethoven?

"You may be ready for Beethoven," says the seven-year-old, "but he is not ready for you."

And his favorite legend? Albert Einstein.

"Albert Einstein did get the Nobel Peace Prize," said Adrian. "Well, you don't have to admire them if they got the Nobel Peace Prize, but you can if you like."
