Legendary Romanian conductor Georgescu, & 3 Beethoven pieces (Symph 7 ; Coriolan & Egmont Ovtr.'s CD)

£5.99

Product description

( full title of the compact disc, is " The George Georgescu Legacy Volume 2 " )

Very possibly the greatest Romanian conductor, George Georgescu (1887-1964) started out in classical music at the age of five, on the violin instrument. He later changed to the cello, under the guidance of another legendary Romanian, the composer Konstantin Dimitrescu, at the Bucharest Conservatory, continuing with that instrument while studying for four years in Berlin, just prior to the outbreak of WWI. However, it was during his time in Germany, that Georgescu became interested in the possibilities and art of conducting, despite going on to play for approximately two years as a professional cellist, in the celebrated Marteau Quartet.

This interest in conducting, became more of a necessity after 1916, when a physical handicap forced Georgescu to abandon the cello ... Georgescu's main era of conducting was between the Early-1920s and Mid-1950s, an era which he himself was certainly not short of constant, excellent peer competition, as per : Toscanini, Solti, Klemperer, Krips, Richard Strauss, Monteux, Cluytens, von Karajan Beecham, etc. etc., not to mention a whole host of talented, fellow East European conductors.

He was the director and principal conductor of The Bucharest State Opera (1922-40), and also Professor at the Bucharest Conservatory (1950-53), as well as raising The Bucharest Philharmonic Orchestra to an elite standard. He was, also, a close friend of Richard Strauss, the legendary German composer and conductor.
