Neglected giant George Enescu

The Romanian composer George Enescu is one of the neglected giants of modern music. Prodigiously gifted, he became best known in America as a conductor, where he was considered a successor to Toscanini, and in Europe, one of the greatest violinists of the century.  However, he was first and foremost a composer. Unfortunately his mature works, works of extraordinary emotional depth and intricate beauty,  remain virtually unknown outside Romania.
