The 2020 George Enescu Competition – New Format due to the global situation generated by Covid-19

George Enescu Competition is an international platform for launching the future world-class musicians and for promoting the compositions of the great Romanian composer to the new generation of artists. It is thus a natural extension of the George Enescu Festival, the most important cultural event organized in Romania. The Competition has four sections – violin, cello, piano, and composition – and the international standards according to which it is organized place it at the top of the hierarchy of events, developed in the landscape of classical music in Romania.
