Product Information

GRAMMY® Award winning conductor Cristian Măcelaru, Artistic Director of the George Enescu Festival and the Orchestre National de France of which he is the Music Director, announce their upcoming album of the complete symphonic works by George Enescu (1881–1955). Recorded in Paris, where the Romanian-born Enescu moved in his early teens, this collection includes the well-known pair of Romanian Rhapsodies (1901) and the composer’s three, less often performed completed symphonies. 

Following his move to Paris in his early teens both Romania and France play a key role in Enescu’s music. Cristian Măcelaru notes both "the Romanian spirit found in the centuries-old melodies and rhythms to which [Enescu] refers with such consistency and depth;” while his adopted home “was where he developed into a mature, sophisticated musician.”

The album will be released digitally and as a 3-CD set on April 12, 2024. Listen to the pre-release track of the third movement from the 1st symphony. 

Also available in Dolby Atmos®
