World's top Orchestras, Conductors and Chamber Ensembles
will perform in Romania, August 30 - September 20, 2015
The 22nd biennial George Enescu Classical Music Festival and Competition, scheduled for August 30 - September 20, 2015, will pay special tribute to Romania's most famous composer/musician.
Some of the world's most famous orchestras, chamber ensembles and opera
companies will perform – some premiering
new works - and juried competitions
will be held for piano, violin and voice.
Already on the schedule are:
"George Enescu was one of the most prodigiously gifted musicians of the twentieth century," according to noted biographer Paul Banks, "a great violinist and composer, a distinguished conductor, an accomplished pianist, able cellist and a famous violin teacher who numbered Christian Ferras, Arthur Grumiaux and Yehudi Menuhin among his pupils. His musical memory was phenomenal, a fact that contributed to the loss of some of his own works which he composed but never wrote down."
The George Enescu Memorial Museum and headquarters of the Association of Composers in Bucharest, should be visited on any festival trip.
Built by noted architect, I.D. Berindei, in 1900 the palace is on four levels, comprising three exhibition halls, concert halls and ballroom.
Among the exhibits is Enescu's first violin, presented to him at age four.
