Listen here The Sound of Love to celebrate 140 years since George Enescu’s birth
George Enescu International Festival invites the general public and organizations of all kinds – public and private – to take a 5-minute break from their daily rhythms on August 19, George Enescu’s 140th birth anniversary, to honor him without big words but instead with what the Maestro loved most – music – and in the way he lived his own life: with modesty and generosity towards his fellow human beings.
The project prepared by the George Enescu Festival for August 19 is titled The Sound of Love and aims to make room for the healing and unifying power of music in a public space saturated with empty rhetoric, ignoring too often what truly matters, and marked by pandemic-fueled aggression – on the day when we celebrate 140 years since George Enescu’s birth.
The recording of George Enescu’s Ballade is in the unique performance of famous violinist David Garrett, alongside Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of the late Gianluigi Gelmetti, as presented in the 2015 Enescu Festival. You can read more details here.
