Ellen Kaye is on top of all the animal news around and sent me this one, a video.
It has comical elements for sure, since the pianist attempting to soothe the Thai monkeys has to admit when he’s playing Beethoven’s “Für Elise” that the monkeys are eating the music. Which you can see for yourself. And interpret for yourself; he doesn’t attempt that, anyway.
Paul Barton, the pianist, has had a better effect on elephants but then he plays for one elephant at a time.
