About

Strigoii remained a forgotten work until the manuscript, lost like many others in the turmoil of the First World War, was returned to the public domain by the director of the Enescu Museum. In order to understand how Strigoii was created, it was necessary to both decipher and then reconstruct the original score. When Enescu began Strigoii in 1916, it was the result of a long-held admiration for the poet Mihai Eminescu that was to last until the end of the composerís life. While there are similarities to German Romanticism in Eminescuís poem (think of Novalis or Tieck), in Strigoii Enescu also shows stylistic affinities to contemporaries such as Alexander von Zemlinsky and the young Alban Berg.
