Ravaged Pakistan Gets Beethoven, Free Players for $100,000 Aid

Conductor George Mathew will use Beethoven to aid rebuilding efforts in Pakistan after last year’s floods left millions injured and homeless.

“Relief work is very important, but perhaps some sustainable work could be done to help economic development,” said Mathew, 46, founder and artistic director of Music for Life International. He started the charity in 2008 to bring classical musicians together for humanitarian causes.
