George Enescu (1881-1955)

George Enescu was a Romanian child prodigy who, at age 7, was the youngest student ever enrolled at the Vienna Conservatory, graduating at age 12. Shortly after, he continued his violin and composition studies at the Paris Conservatory with Massenet and Fauré. Later, cellist Pablo Casals described Enescu as “the greatest musical phenomenon since Mozart” with further praise from violinist Yehudi Menuhin and composer Vincent d’Indy, among others. He became so famous that after his death in 1955, the city in Romania where he was born officially changed its name to George Enescu. He was born on this date, August 19, so to celebrate his birthday today, we’ll be streaming his 1905 Symphony No. 1 for today’s noon masterpiece at 2:00 p.m.
