Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.” ~ Pablo Casals


This video is a profound tribute to the connection which can be forged between living beings through music. Paul Barton plays for a blind elephant, Lam Duan, in the grounds of ElephantsWorld, an Environmental Conservation Organization in Thailand that cares for domestic elephants.  It is a beautiful and tender moment between two beings who clearly care for each other.



Paul’s selection of piano pieces make for a wonderfully relaxing playlist, regardless of whether you are an elephant or a human:


Prelude 1 in C Major BMV846 from The Well Tempered Clavier by J S Bach:


Aria da Capo, Godberg Variations BMV988 by J S Bach:


Ständchen (Serenade) by Franz Schubert, arranged for solo piano by Franz Liszt:

Bravo to Paul and all his colleagues at ElephantsWorld, who are clearly working miracles for the 30 or so elephants in their care.


Music . . . can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable.” ~ Leonard Bernstein
