Magic exists and it needs no introduction.
It happens every odd year, only in September.
Then, some of world’s top orchestras and conductors perform in Bucharest.
They pay tribute through music to Romania’s most famous composer: George Enescu.
It is the biggest and greatest music festival in Romania and among top 3 European festivals.
Ever growing in stature and glamour, this is already a rival to the mighty Salzburg Festival.
A feast for outstanding classical music lovers, it is securing a stellar cast of orchestras, ensembles and artists.
These descend on Bucharest’s historic grounds making it for a memorable 3 weeks, the world’s capital of culture.
