Romanian Cultural Institute in New York in collaboration with the George Enescu Society of the USA presented a series of concerts initiated by Sherban Lupu.
The “George Enescu
Society of the United States” was created in 1981, the year
which marked the 100th anniversary of Romania’s greatest musical
genius. George Enescu (1881-1955) was an exceptional violinist, pianist,
conductor, composer and teacher, altogether one of the most significant
minds of the twentieth century. The Society was founded in order
to promote his legacy through concerts, lectures, symposiums and
festivals, which have taken place throughout the United States.
The group known as “The George Enescu Players” has
performed concerts and broadcasts coast-to-coast, devoting entire
programs to the chamber-music of Enescu. The reception of the public
and press alike was always very rewarding. Such an activity is
up to the support of adequate funds, which, it is to be hoped,
will continue to be generously available.
