The public will have a user's guide with recommendations available on the Festival's website - ten steps to buying tickets to the George Enescu International Music Festival.

As it happened in 2013 and January 2015, when the season tickets went on sale, we are estimating that the tickets for most of the concerts which will take place at the Romanian Athenaeum, as well as for several which will take place at the Palace Small Hall will sell in record time. Eventim recommends online tickets purchasing via www.eventim.ro as the fastest and most flexible buying method. With the website traffic incredibly high, buying online is still just a matter of seconds, lowering the buying chances for people who opt for Box Office pick-up furthermore.

The 2015 Edition of the Festival will take place between August 30 and September 20 in Bucharest, and will host 58 concerts for 22 days at The Pallace Hall and The Romanian Athenaeum, as well as several outdoor events organized under the auspices of the Enescu Festival Square (September 3 to 20) and the Creative Bucharest cultural projects.

The Festival's 22nd Edition features in premiere in Bucharest the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, which will perform at the Palace Hall on 3rd September, 2015, under the baton of legendary Sir Simon Rattle after fifteen years of negotiations. The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra was voted number three on a list of Top Ten European Orchestras (in 2006) by the reputable British magazine Gramophone, and the second best orchestra in the world (in 2008), following the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam. The latter will also perform in the 2015 George Enescu International Festival, on 19th and 20th September. Renowned American orchestraSan Francisco Symphony will participate in the Festival as well, with one of the Enescu's compositions among other works.

Famous violinists Anne Sophie Mutter, Janine Jansen and David Garrett, Israeli conductor Zubin Mehta, as well as Romanian born conductor Ion Marin and pianist Maria João Pires, are among the 2015 Edition's most sought after performers. Laureates of the George Enescu Competition will also grace the Festival with their presence: Alexandru Tomescu, Valery Sokolov, Ștefan Tarara, Vlad Stănculeasa, Agnes Baltsa and Elisabeta Leonskaja.

The audience will also enjoy 20 works by George Enescu in modern interpretations by some of the most influential orchestras in the world. This way, the Festival carries on giving greater international recognition to the Enescian repertoire.
