Bibliography The Romanian composer George Enescu is one of the neglected giants of modern music. Prodigiously gifted, he became best known in America as a conductor (where he was considered as a successor to Toscanini in New York) and in Europe as one of the greatest violinists of the century. But he was first and foremost a composer ; and, tragically, his mature works - works of extraordinary emotional depth and intricate beauty - remain virtually unknown outside Romania. George Enescu was said by Pablo Casals to be "the most amazing musician since Mozart" , a statement which in many respects was true. He achieved international renown as a composer violinist pianist conductor and teacher and he displayed genius in each of these disciplines. He possessed a phenomenal memory and knew the entire repertoire of classical and romantic music by heart, in addition to many works of the twentieth century, with which one of his generations might well have been though unsympathetic. Apart from these superlative gifts, Enescu was a man of humility; he was a profound teacher (counting Yehudi Menuhin and Dinu Lipatti amongst his pupils) who impressed every musician who met him. He was born in 19 August 1881 in Liveni, Romania. So gifted was he that, aged only seven, he entered the Vienna Conservatoire as an accomplished violinist, determined to be a composer. Enescu never forgot his home, set amidst Carpathian peaks, and graduated with distinction from Conservatoire before his 11th birthday. He had played on the first desk of an orchestra under Brahms in the latter's C minor Symphony and accompanying Brahms in his First Piano Concerto. Brahms was a lifelong hero, as was Wagner (indicating Enescu's broad sympathies) who became, as he sad

Extractions: Died May 4, 1955 Paris, France George Enescu was one of the most prodigiously gifted musicians of the 20 th century: 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. As a composer, Enescu's published output was relatively modest, though it contained some substantial works, including his masterpiece, the opera Odeipe . The fact that his three published symphonies were composed between 1905 and 1918 might suggest - wrongly - that his interest in the genre was modest and lasted for less then fifteen years. Actually, as a student Enescu was a prolific composer (nearly three hundred works date from the period up to 1900) and he completed three other symphonies (as well as a Chamber Symphony finished in 1954) and began work on another three in the years 1894-1941.

Extractions: George Enescu George Enescu (1881 - 1955) is the greatest Romanian composer, violinist, pianist, conductor and teacher, one of the most important musicians from the 20th century. Enescu raised the professional Romanian music at the level of the universal music values. Born in Liveni, near Dorohoi, Botosani county (northern Moldavia), he has known since his childhood the Romania folklore from the folk music bands. He began his studies at the Conservatoire of Iasi with the professor Eduard Caudella. Due to his extraordinary talent he was guided to follow his studies at the Conservatoire from Vienna and next in Paris. He was the first foreign student in Paris who obtained the golden medal. Violinist of international fame, he was considerate one of the greatest interpreters of his time. He was the teacher of Yehudi Menuhin, who appreciated him very much, and included Enescu's works in his repertoire. His creation has some unvaluable works: "Romanian Rhapsodies" no. 1 and 2, "Oedip" opera, "Impressions from Childhood" suite, symphonies, sonatas for violin and piano, quartets, lids and others.

Extractions: Although Enesco severed relations with his Communist homeland, the Romanian government paid homage to him for his varied accomplishments. His native village, a street in Bucharest, and the State Philharmonic of Bucharest were named in his honor. Periodical Enesco festivals and international performing competitions were established in Bucharest in 1958. Enesco had an extraordinary range of musical interests. His compositions include artistic stylizations of Romanian folk strains; while his style was neo-Romantic, he made occasional use of experimental devices, such as quarter tones in his opera, "Oedipe." He possessed a fabulous memory and was able to perform innumerable works without scores. He not only distinguished himself as a violinist and conductor, but he was also a fine pianist and a gifted teacher.

Extractions: Enescu is remembered mainly for his two Romanian Rhapsodies , though in later life he became fed up with the way they overshadowed the rest of his music. The need to earn money, and the upheavals he experienced in Romania as a result of the two World Wars meant that he was better known as a conductor and violinist during his lifetime. But the enormous expansion of the recorded repertoire on CD means that his stature as Romania's greatest composer can now be more widely appreciated. Enescu was born in Moldavia, in north-east Romania. The only surviving child of twelve, he was fiercely protected by his mother, and wasn't allowed to mix with other children. He found an outlet in painting, and then, after he was given a violin at the age of four, in music, which he learned to play by ear. By the time he was five, he'd become proficient enough to impress the director of the Conservatoire in the Moldavian capital of Iasi. Two years later, he'd made sufficient progress to go to the Vienna Conservatoire. In Vienna, the seven-year-old Enescu studied violin, piano, chamber music, harmony, counterpoint and musical history, and graduated at the age of twelve with the highest grade in all subjects. He had also began his performing career, at first giving recitals back in Romania during vacations, then in Vienna itself. He moved to Paris in 1895, principally to study composition with Massenet. During his three years at the Conservatoire, Enescu composed many student works, including four "School Symphonies", as he described them. But he also wrote the
Extractions: The Romanian violinist and composer George Enescu (1881-1955) enjoyed international acclaim for his virtuoso performances, his teachings (Yehudi Menuhin was among his proteges), and his extremely popular original compositions. This new compilation of two of his most popular works, reproduced from authoritative sources, consists of a pair of rhapsodies in the melodramatic gypsy, mode that are performance staples around the world, especially at Pops concerts. The better-known Rhapsody No. 1 is tuneful and wild: Rhapsody No. 2 is quieter, darker, and more sentimental. Schwann lists 19 recordings of these concert favorites, indicating a warm reception for this new and modestly priced edition.
Extractions: (Helios) The Romanian George Enescu was something of an all-round musical genius. Not only an excellent composer, he was also a first-rate violinist and conductor, and an accomplished pianist and cellist with a formidable musical memory. The three works on this excellent CD span almost 30 years of his career, but each one is as fascinating as the other in its own way, and Adelina Oprean and her brother team up brilliantly to meet each of their challenges. Sonata no.2 is a stunning early work, heavily tinged with Brahmsian sonorities and rhythms. Oprean captures the mood of the sinuous opening theme of the first movement and the wistful understatement of the Tranquillo slow movement beautifully, as well as playing the more impassioned sections with great command and feeling, before launching deftly into the spirited dance-like finale.

Extractions: Romania GEORGE ENESCU by Claudiu Badea George Enescu was born in the town of Liveni on August 19, 1881. He is regarded as Romania's most versatile musician and certainly it's greatest composer. Enescu was surrounded by music from an early age. His father sang, conducted a choir and played the violin. His mother played the guitar and the piano. He began to play the violin at the age of four. He got his first lesson from a gypsy 'lautar' who could not read music and so taught his pupils by making them imitate him by ear (Malcolm p.30) Enescu showed progress very quickly and his parents decided to start him on piano. At the same time he was taught how to read music, and the floodgates were opened. Enescu began to compose in styles which he knew or just imagined, but it was very fascinating to others because of his young age and his very limited range of exposure to classical music. At the age of seven, Enescu was brought to the Conservatoire in Iasi where he auditioned with the director, Eduard Caudella. When he was done performing, Caudella recommended that Enescu be sent to Vienna where he could receive a much better musical education. His debut performance was as a violinist in 1889, and by the time he left the Conservatory in Vienna to study in Paris in 1895, he was regarded as a mature performer (Malcolm p.60). Enescu's early success as a composer, which raised some eyebrows at the Conservatoire, came with the performance of his Poeme Roumain in January 1898. This work became Opus 1 in his mature series of opus numbers. This piece was to remain one of the (if not the most) favorite composition to the composer as it was his first major performed work. It is a symphonic suite which incorporates Romanian styles of folkloric influence (Voicana, p82). Three years later, Enescu completed the two Romanian Rhapsodies which were again written along the styles of some Romanian dances. As it would turn out, these two rhapsodies would become the most successful pieces that he wrote. He would look back later in his life and regret that those two pieces became those by which the world would remember him since they were not his favorites.
