Just for fun...

I was lucky enough to correspond with the late Sir Patrick Moore. |
He told me that he once met Albert Einstein at a small party, and, as Einstein was famous for travelling everywhere with his violin, the guests asked him if heíd play something. Einstein declined, saying that heíd need someone to accompany him on piano - Patrick leapt at the chance, and they played Saint SaŽns (The Swan), together.
Patrick said that the duet was not recorded, and that he wished that it had been.
I felt Patrickís loss, so I put together the following animated piece of Patrick and Albert, playing Saint SaŽns. Patrick told me that he loved cats, so I added some clips of cats to accompany the music. Patrick liked humour, so I added a humorous clip on the end.
