Soloist gives his royalties to Covid-hit youngstersNews
The Hungarian-born violinist György Pauk has published an English version of his life story, ahead of his 85th birthday.
He writes on the frontispiece: This book was prepared for publication during the 2020/21 period of the Covid pandemic. As everyone knows this has had a traumatic impact on the classical music community in the UK and overseas. Many of those earning their living in this sector of the economy are freelance or self-employed, and demand for their services has collapsed. As for the students preparing to follow in their footsteps, they are anxiously wondering what the future holds for them.
I have decided that all proceeds from the sale of this book will be distributed to charities supporting young classical musicians.
