George Enescu Festival (also known as George Enescu Festival and
International Competition), held in honor of the celebrated
Romanian composer George Enescu, is the biggest classical music
festival and classical international competition held in Romania
and one of the biggest in Eastern Europe. Enescu's close associate
George Georgescu organized the first festival in 1958; highlights
included a performance of Bach's Concerto for Two Violins with
Yehudi Menuhin and David Oistrakh as soloists and a staging of
Enescu's sole opera, dipe, with Constantin Silvestri conducting.
The festival now is held every two years; the 2007 festival ran
from 1 September to 23 September. The concerts are held in three
different venues in Bucharest, Ia i and Sibiu. The 2007
presentations ended with a performance of Carl Orff's Carmina
Burana before an audience of over 4,000 at the Sala Palatului.
