George Enescu Festival Bucharest

The composer, violinist, teacher, pianist and conductor George Enescu (1881 – 1955) remains in history as one of the most important culture personalities of the 20th century; he took the role of a music ambassador both in Romania and across the world, becoming involved in promoting Romanian Music, contributing at the international recognition of the Romanian composers, conductors and interprets.

 

The memory of the great Romanian musician is perpetuated through the Internationa Festival George Enescu, through different symposiums that take place in Romania and outside its borders and also through expositions, concerts and publications realized inside the National Museum “George Enescu”, in Bucharest.

 

The Festival had its official opening on the 4th of September 1958, three years after George Enescu’s death, marking the beginning of the most important international musical manifestation sheltered in Romania. The festival was supposed to take place every three years, followed by an international contest during the first 5 editions, but has been cancelled at one point and retaken once with the edition in 1991.

 

Along the years, prestigious orchestras and musicians participated at the Festival held at the Romanian Atheneum and Sala Radio, such as Vienna Philharmonic - conducted by Herbert von Karajan, Stockholm Philharmonic – conducted by Sergiu Celibidache and London Philharmonic – conducted by Sir John Barbirolli.
