Ο George Enescu…

Από το www.webcitation.org, μια σύντομη «βιογραφία» του George Enescu:

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, «part  of my vascular system». Enescu was at the Vienna  premiere of Massenet’s Werther in 1892 and he entered the Paris  Conservatoire, studying composition with Massenet. When the boy was only 13,  Massenet wrote to Enescu’s father, «Your son  is an exceptional individual; his is the most interesting musical  constitution there can be». Enescu displayed a command of  large-scale form: by the age of 16 he had written four Study Symphonies and  had also given the premiere of his Violin Concerto in Paris in 1886. Amongst  a distinguished orchestral output, Enescu left eleven symphonic works: four  Study Symphonies written between 1895-1898 and five mature symphonies (the  Fourth and Fifth are unfinished) plus a Concert Symphony for cello and  orchestra and a Chamber Symphony. He often lived in Paris, travelling widely,  but returned to Romania for several lengthy periods, remaining there  throughout World War II. After died in 4 May 1955, his hometown of Liveni was  renamed George Enescu.
