Elephants dance to a violinist playing Bach

Watch these pachyderms with a penchant for performance dancing to violin music by the great J. S. Bach.
They might be famous for their trumpeting abilities, but these two unusual elephants take their love of music to new extremes in this video as they gently sway along to a concert violinist.
As they listen to a solo rendition of Bach's Concerto for Two Violins, Strings and Continuo in D minor, BWV 1043, the pair, known as Kelly and Viola, dance to the beat, apparently enjoying the performance. They clearly have impeccable taste: this famous concerto, known as the Bach 'Double Violin Concerto', is considered to be one of the best examples of music of the late Baroque period.
