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