To many, George Enescu (1881-1955) is just a figure on a common banknote. To others, he was the teacher of Sir Yehudi Menuhin. For the music connoisseurs, Enescu is the author of Othello and the Romanian Rhapsody and definitely deserves to be praised by every major orchestra of the world in a special gathering held every two years in Bucharest. After all, as George Enescu himself said, he never left his country: he took it with him.
