About

Until now the important contribution of the Romanian composer, violin virtuoso, pianist, conductor and music teacher George Enescu (Georges Enesco, 1881–1955) to the arts of his second homeland, France, has been recognised only in fleeting references. Enescu was one of the most important Romanian ambassadors of cultural exchange in the French capital, alongside the sculptor Constantin Brancusi (Brâncusi, 1876–1957), the writer Tristan Tzara (1896–1963) and the painter Marcel Janco (Jancu, 1895–1984). The latter two made significant contributions to the Dadaism movement, which started in Zurich in 1916 and was further developed in Paris in 1920. Unlike his Paris-based compatriots Stan Golestan (1875–1956) and Filip Lazăr (1894–1936), co-founder of the progressive chamber music society Triton in 1928, Enescu had a lasting influence on the Paris music scene.
