Extractions: firstname.lastname@example.org CHAMPAIGN, Ill. Fifty years after Romanian composer George Enescu's last residency at the University of Illinois, the campus is celebrating the anniversary with a three-day symposium Oct. 20-22. "Enescu has been a towering figure of the 20th century as a composer, violinist, pianist, conductor and pedagogue," said UI violin professor and event coordinator Sherban Lupu. "Together with Bartok, Szymanowsky, Janacek and Stravinsky, he engineered the rebirth of the East European national schools, thus creating the bridge linking the romantic era to the modern and contemporary language of music." From 1948 through 1950, Enescu was a regular visitor to the UI campus. During his extended visits, he gave master classes in violin, piano and chamber music, and performed and conducted.

Extractions: George Enescu (1881-1955) George Enescu has been a musician whose fame extends worldwide to this day. Enescu's Romanian Rhapsodies remain among the most important musical works to ever emerge from Romania, and the only works that have ever truly captured the spirit of universal Romanian Culture. He was creator of suites, chamber music, and the "Oedip Rege" (King Oidipus) opera. Composer, pianist, and violinist of world renown, Enescu, born in 1881, studied at the Vienna School of Music, graduating in 1893, when he moved to Paris to continue his musical education. He made his debut in Paris in 1898 with "Poema Românã" (Romanian Poem). Not only a composer and interpret of music, he was also a fine teacher and instructor. His most known student was the late maestro of the violin Yehudi Menuhin. Enescu was professor of music in Paris and Vienna, and in the United States at Harvard and at the University of Illinois. Becoming a member of the Romanian Academy in 1932, Enescu died in Paris in 1955.

Extractions: CHEAP-PRICE.NET's Cheap Price Usually ships within 4 to 5 days It's a real puzzle why a great violinist like Aaron Rosand has never had the major career he deserves. His misfortune benefits bargain hunters, as this wonderful collection of mostly obscure Romantic violin showpieces winds up on a super-bargain label. If this kind of music attracts your fancy, you will seldom, if ever, hear it played with more passion and flair, or better command of the instrument, than Rosand offers. The orchestra is distinctly second-rate, but it doesn't matter much in pieces where the focus is so firmly on the soloist. There's a lot of fun and some surprisingly good music (like the Joachim) in this set.

Extractions: GEORGE ENESCU (1881-1955) Excerpts from the sleeve notes THE ROMANIAN COMPOSER George Enescu (1881-1955) is one of the neglected giants of modern music. His magnificent series of late chamber works, which starts with his Third Violin Sonata, includes pieces of striking originality, intricate beauty and expressive power which can be ranked with the finest chamber music of Ravel, Janácek or Bartók. Outside Romania, however, most of Enescus music is unknown, and the only pieces played at all frequently in the concert hall are his two early and far from typical Romanian Rhapsodies. Judging Enescu by those two pieces alone is rather like judging Ravel on the basis of Bolero and nothing else. Enescu was born to a fairly prosperous middle- or lower-middle-class family in the north-eastern corner of Romania, close to the Ukrainian border. He showed a precocious talent for both violin-playing and composition, and at the age of seven he entered the Vienna Conservatoire. There he encountered Brahms, and developed what was to be a life-long devotion to his music. In 1895 Enescu moved to the Paris Conservatoire, where his teachers included Massenet and Fauré, and his friends and fellow-students included Ravel and Alfred Cortot. Even before he left the Conservatoire in 1899, he had attracted public acclaim in Romania as a composer; up until the first world war, he was based mainly in Paris, but spent several months each year in his native land, where he was appointed court musician to the Romanian royal family. Major works of this period included his first symphony (1905); his second and third symphonies were completed in Romania during the war.

THE HERALD "Opening his Wigmore Hall recital with a performance of Mozart's Sonata K.576 that combined delicacy of touch with tensile strength in rhythm and structural outline, Julian Jacobson went on to cover a wide stylistic field with equal vigour. " DAILY TELEGRAPH UK GEORGE ENESCU (1881-1955) George Enescu was born on 19 August 1881 in Liveni-Virnov, Northern Rumania, the twelfth and only surviving child. His father, a country estate administrator, sang and conducted a local choir, and his mother, Maria, played the piano and guitar. Throughout his life, he retained a remarkable memory, being able to play back on violin or piano any music he had heard once, however long the gap in time. He always rehearsed and performed from memory both as conductor and violinist. In 1888 aged of 7, he entered the Vienna Conservatoire where he studied violin, piano, composition, harmony, chamber music and music history, quite a curriculum even for a mature student. At the age of 17 he was probably the most gifted all-round musician to have emerged since Mozart, a view supported by the cellist Pablo Casals. A concert of his own works in Paris in 1897 had further enhanced his reputation. After making his conducting debut in Bucharest in 1898 he lived for a while in Berlin where he formed his own piano trio and string quartet. From 1906 until the outbreak of the First World War, he was based in Paris but spent much time in Bucharest and on tour in Europe as a solo violinist and conductor, while composing prolifically, particularly large-scale orchestral pieces and a mass of instrumental music.
