Enescu George

George Enescu (1881-1995) was a Romanian child prodigy: violinist, conductor and composer who lived most of its life in Paris and is known in France as Georges Enesco. Besides extensive concert life, Enescu was a noted violin teacher, and great source of inspiration for many musicians throughout the first part of 20th century. Pablo Casals described Enescu as "The greatest musical phenomenon since Mozart".  
Born in a small village of Liveni in Romania as an eight child, he early showed aptitude to music. After writing his first composition at the age of 5 he was showed to professor and composer Eduard Caudella. At the age of 7 he was the youngest student ever to be admitted to the Vienna Conservatory. As a child prodigy he performed for Emperor Franz Joseph at age of 10, with Johannes Brahms in the audience. After graduating it with Silver medal at the age of 12 he moved to Paris, to study violin and composition with Jules Massenet and Gabriel Fauré.
His compositions were greatly influenced by Romanian folk music, including his most popular compositions: “Romanian Rhapsodies” and the opera “Œdipe”.
In 1923 he debuted as a conductor with Philadelphia Orchestra at Carnegie Hall and returned for various appearances in US playing violin and conducting. In 1936 he was considered as a successor of Arturo Toscanini as a Musical Director of the New York Philharmonic.
Since 1948 he taught at the Mannes School of Music. Among his students were Yehudi Menuhin, Ida Haendel, Uto Ughi, Ivry Gitlis etc.
