Richard Clayderman did his bit for animal conservation this week when he went to London Zoo to play the piano for the tortoises. The idea was to get this rare species in the mood to mate in time for Valentine's Day.
The legendary Richard Clayderman returns to the stage... at London Zoo.
Can you see the audience? Clayderman was at the zoo to try and encourage the endangered tortoises to mate in time for Valentine's Day.
Two tortoises arrive to hear the romantic music of Richard Clayderman.
These two seem to be quite moved by Clayderman's playing... let's hope it's a happy Valentine's Day at London Zoo.
These are no mock turtles - they're here to listen to Richard Clayderman play the romantic hits.
Clayderman pulled out the big guns for his performance - he played excerpts from Bernstein's West Side Story and Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet in an effort to get the tortoises in the mood for love. But did it work?
When he's not accompanying amorous zoo animals, Richard Clayderman has a new album out. Aptly called Romantique, it's a collection of some of his most romantic piano performances, from operatic arias like 'O Mio Babbino Caro' to highlights from musicals like West Side Story.
