The two-day festival with conference and concerts will commemorate George Enescu (1881-1955), the great Romanian composer, violinist, conductor, and teacher.

After World War II he gave lessons at the David Mannes School of Music.
The conference, which will take place at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, will examine the political and cultural context of Enescu's activities in his native country, Europe, and the United States. Proposals are invited for individual papers on the following topics:
