Fodor's Expert Review George Enescu Memorial House
Regarded as Romania's greatest musician, George Enescue (1881–1955) was a composer, violinist, pianist, and conductor. He was a child prodigy—at age 10 gave a concert for Emperor Franz Joseph—and went on to perform in Paris and to conduct the New York Philharmonic, living in France and Romania. After the Soviet occupation of Romania, he remained in Paris and is buried there. The large white villa is well maintained and furnished with handsome period pieces. On display are photographs, sheet music, and programs from his many concerts.
