The Enescu Festival has been conducting activities of international promotion, seeing as it is one of the top international events in the field of classical music and a powerful cultural brand for Romania. The conference aims to present the program prepared by organisers and the contribution of participating artists, while at the same time highlighting the value that the Enescu Festival adds to the cultural dialogue between countries.
