It’s that time of the year – or, to be more accurate, of the two years: the spirit of George Enescu is celebrated through his works and the younger generations of performers he inspired, enlivening Bucharest with the magic of his magnificent music. Everything happens in under a month, from August 30 to September 20, with over 58 concerts in several venues throughout the capital, and in Timisoara, Brasov, Iasi, Ploiesti and Bacau.
