Ex-concert pianist plays Beethoven for violent elephant in moving video


Former concert pianist Paul Burton has developed a love for elephants. Their rampant abuse of logs in the forests of Thailand caught the attention of this talented musician.

A 61-year-old former logging elephant named Mongkol was fortunately rescued by Elephant’s World and now enjoys peaceful life on the Kwai River.

Paul discovered the deformed elephant, revealing that he loved the sound of piano music.

The hard work of the logging industry in Thailand has led to the deformity of Mongolkol’s body over the years. He’s lost his “tooth” and his right eye due to widespread atrocities.

After interacting with the sensitive beast, Paul discovered that one of his favourite works was Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.”

Beethoven’s sublime emotional “Sonata of the Moon” is a beautiful work, but even the composer himself could not have imagined that one day his elaboration would soothe the abused elephant.

Monika is excited about former concert pianist Paul Burton, the world is better for that. What a dramatic contrast to his past suffering as an overworked elephant.
