Even the melodist himself could not imagine that one day his works would calm the wounded elephant  

Ex-concert pianist Paul Burton became attached to elephants.

Their unbridled feats of transporting logs in the woods of Thailand caught the attention of this skilled musician.

A 61-year-old ex-lumberjack named Mongkol was luckily saved by Elephant’s World and is currently enjoying a quiet life outside of the River Kwai.

Paul detects a disfigured elephant and finds out that the latter is fond of the sound of piano music.

The harsh labor experience of Thailand’s tree hauling industry has caused Mongkol’s body to disfigure over the years. He also lost his tusk as well as his right eye because of widespread brutality.

After talking with an intelligent animal, Paul discovers that one of his beloved works is Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

The sublimely sensible „Moonlight Sonata“ by Beethoven is a really wonderful work, but even the composer himself could not imagine that one day his arrangement would calm the wounded elephant.

Mongkal is visibly thrilled by the sympathy of former concert pianist Paul Burton, and the world is a better place for it.

What a dramatic opposition to his earlier travails as an overworked lugging elephant!
