Georges Enescu

Georges Enescu was a Romanian composer, violinist, pianist, conductor and teacher. He created his first composition at the age of five and entered the Vienna Conservatory two years later.

Enescu went to Paris in 1895 to advance his studies, where he studied with Martin Pierre Marsick, André Gedalge, Jules Massenet, and Gabriel Fauré. Many of Enescu's works were influenced by Romanian folk music, including the Romanian Rhapsodies (such as the one featured below). However, through his life and study, he became bound to and influenced by Paris. On his death in 1955, George Enescu was interred in the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
