Romanian Cultural Institute in New York in collaboration with the George Enescu Society of the USA presented a series of concerts initiated by Sherban Lupu.


The “George Enescu Society of the United States” was created in 1981, the year which marked the 100th anniversary of Romania’s greatest musical genius. George Enescu (1881-1955) was an exceptional violinist, pianist, conductor, composer and teacher, altogether one of the most significant minds of the twentieth century. The Society was founded in order to promote his legacy through concerts, lectures, symposiums and festivals, which have taken place throughout the United States.

The group known as “The George Enescu Players” has performed concerts and broadcasts coast-to-coast, devoting entire programs to the chamber-music of Enescu. The reception of the public and press alike was always very rewarding. Such an activity is up to the support of adequate funds, which, it is to be hoped, will continue to be generously available.
