The Enescu Museum yesterday opened an interesting exhibit, meant to show to the public a different face of the legendary composer. Entitled “George Enescu and Romanian fiddlers”, the display is addressed both to the public and to music historians. The exhibit has as starting point studies by Professor Viorel Cosma, published in the volume “Bucharest- Secular Citadel for Romanian Fiddlers”. George Enescu was greatly influenced in his work by gypsy and fiddlers’ music. “We have to be thankful to them for keeping our traditional music, a treasure that we need to keep close to our hearts. They are the ones who have unearthed this richness of tradition, as they are the only ones who keep good care of music.“ In the exhibit will be displayed pictures and sound items reminding one of internationally famous artists such as Grigoras Dinicu, Nicolae Buica, Cristache Ciolac and Lica Stefanescu, as well as pictures testifying to their connections with Enescu.
Venue: George Enescu Museum; Address: 141 Victoriei Ave; Visiting hours: 11 am- 7 pm
