Pianist Paul Barton wowed a set of injured and handicapped elephants by playing music from Beethoven’s Pathétique Sonata!

Incredibly, Paul hauled his hulking instrument up to the mountains of Kanchanaburi to entertain the elderly else.

And fellow animal lovers don’t fret – the keys on the piano are NOT ivory, but a synthetic plastic material.
