Who would have thought phenomenal Chinese pianist Li Yundi would seranade giant panda cubs? Well, the famed musician performed Chopin's nocturnes and the Chinese classic Clouds Chasing the Moon for panda triplets on Monday.

Li visited Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou, and treated the three-month-old panda triplets, as well as to a lucky group of onlookers, to a stellar performance.

Li hopes to bless the world's first surviving panda triplets with his music. The three cubs were born in the park on July 29, a rare event for the endangered, bamboo-loving bears.
