George Enescu International Festival 2021 presents its artistic program for the French press
A jewel of classical music that defies the pandemic, in Bucharest, between 28 August and 26 September
The George Enescu International Festival organizes an online event for the French press and public on March 18th (Romania time) to present its artistic programme and plans for its 2021 edition. The initiative is part of an effort made by the Enescu Festival of external promotion, as it is one of the top world events in the field of classical music and a strong cultural brand for Romania.
What does the Enescu Festival propose in 2021? What are the challenges to be addressed in the context of the pandemic? What does it mean for artists and the public to organize the Festival in 2021? What does George Enescu's music and personality mean for the cultural world in France and around the world?
We will address these topics with our guests at the conference:
