‘George Enescu was Romania’s true musical ambassador. He belonged to the first generation of composers born in the relatively young Kingdom of Romania, but left his native land as a seven-year-old child prodigy to study in Vienna, then in Paris: from then on, he led a cosmopolitan life. He would soon become a world-famed celebrity: first as a violinist, soon also as a composer, pianist and conductor. Yehudi Menuhin, his most renowned pupil, referred to Enescu as the most extraordinary human being he ever encountered. Several recordings of Enescu playing the violin have been preserved, including his own Third Violin Sonata with Dinu Lipatti, his godchild, as a sensitive accompanist on the piano.
‘Begun before the Tzigane but only completed thereafter, the Violin Sonata in G major was dedicated by Ravel to the above-mentioned Hélène Jourdan-Morhange, a violinist who was both his friend and advisor. In the meantime she had contracted rheumatism in her fingers and could no longer play the sonata in public. None other than George Enescu stepped in to ensure the work’s resounding success in its world première with Ravel at the piano.’
