Romanian Presidency concert

Tuesday 15 January 2019, 6.30 pm
Romanian Cultural Institute in London

Tuesday 15th January, on the occasion of the Romanian National Day of Culture, EUYO celebrate the start of the Romanian EU Council Presidency by performing one of the most beloved works of the Romanian composer George Enescu – his octet for strings.

Composed in 1900, it was a stunningly ambitious project for the then 19-year-old composer, who described his creation process as follows: “No engineer putting his first suspension bridge across a river can have agonized more than I did as I gradually filled my manuscript paper with notes”. 


By invitation only.
