Extractions: Enescu, the Romanian National Composer was according to some critics " an extraordinary musician equally famed as a pedagogue, composer, conductor, advocate of musical education and violinist " (Peter Gutmann, 2004), "the most amazing musician since Mozart" (Pablo Casals), " one of the neglected giants of the twentieth century" (GEORGE ENESCU: HIS LIFE AND MUSIC by Noel Malcolm). Massenet wrote to Enescu's father as follows: "Your son is an exceptional individual; his is the most interesting musical constitution there can be". " He was one of the world's finest violinists alongside Kreisler and Heifetz; a pianist whose technique was the envy of Alfred Cortot; a cellist and organist; a conductor brilliant enought to have been considered to succeed Toscanini with the New York Philharmonic" ( Patric Standford, 21st December 2003 ).
Extractions: American violinist and conductor considered among the great virtuosos of his time. Encyclopedia Menuhin, Yehudi yÉhÅ« dÄ mÄn yÅ«Än ) , 1916â99, British violinist and conductor, b. New York City. Menuhin, an extraordinary prodigy, began playing the violin at four. He made his debut with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra at seven, then studied in Europe with Adolf Busch and Georges Enesco . After a world tour (1934â35) of unprecedented success, he retired to study for two years. During World War II he performed hundreds of concerts for Allied troops and relief efforts. He was the founder of Switzerland's Gstaad Festival (1957). Menuhin introduced little-known works and promoted Eastern music in lectures and performances, such as his collaboration with Ravi Shankar East Meets West.
Extractions: Part II: Enescu the performer: violinist, conductor and pianist The second part of my commemoration of George Enescu is in some respects shorter than part I (in the number of recordings it covers). It is however broader in scope as it covers three distinct areas of Enescus music-making - across a range of composers - preserved on disc. Inevitably, I shall revisit performances of his own compositions mentioned only in passing in part I of my article, and consider the merits in greater detail. In dealing with the material available, I shall deal with each role in turn and individual composers under subheadings. Details of other recordings as violinist, conductor or pianist that exist but have not yet seen CD issue can be found in Noel Malcolms excellent book, "George Enescu: his life and music" (Pub: Toccata Press). There awaits a treasure chest of material for companies to explore, if only they have the inclination.
GEORGE ENESCU george enescu was one of the most prodigiously gifted musicians of the twentiethcentury a great violinist and composer, a distinguished conductor, http://cpcug.org/user/stefan/enescu.html
Extractions: George Enescu was one of the most prodigiously gifted musicians of the twentieth 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. 1996 Paul Banks
