In Romania’s Mediaeval capital, discover the extraordinary George Enescu Festival, one of the musical world’s best kept secrets.
Held every second year in autumn, the George Enescu Festival brings together the world’s leading orchestras, conductors and soloists for a tour de force of music concerts. The 2017 festival featured performances by the London Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Symphony, Martha Argerich, Lang Lang, Maxim Vengerov, Orchestra of La Scala Milan and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, in addition to countless other ‘music super-stars’. In 2019, the Festival opens with the Berlin Philharmonic and ends with the exhilarating Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (full programme to be announced in October).
Two departure dates are available for this tour, each presenting 11 nights of spectacular symphonic concerts, world-class recitals, enchanting choral works and exquisite chamber music in Bucharest’s Romanian Athenaeum and Grand Palace Hall. For the complete Enescu experience, you can even combine the two tours and enjoy three weeks of magnificent masterpieces of music.
In past years, subscription tickets to the Enescu Festival have sold out within minutes, so to avoid disappointment we advise that you register your interest in our tour without delay.
