Miercuri, 11 iunie 2014 - Marti, 01 iulie 2014

Editia a XIV-a a Concursului International „George Enescu”, singura competitie de acest gen din Romania, recunoscuta de forurile internationale de specialitate, are loc in perioada 6 – 27 septembrie 2014 si se desfasoara la Ateneul Roman si la Universitatea Nationala de Muzica din Bucuresti. Concursul cuprinde patru sectiuni competitionale: Vioara, Violoncel, Pian si Compozitie.

Conditii de inscriere si regulament: aici.

Concursul International “George Enescu” a debutat oficial in septembrie 1958, odata cu lansarea Festivalului International “George Enescu”, ajungand in anul 2014 la a XIV-a editie. 

Inca de la primele editii si mai ales dupa Revolutie, Concursul International “George Enescu” a devenit una dintre cele mai valoroase manifestari europene de gen, plasand Romania pe harta competitiilor de muzica clasica recunoscute in cele mai inalte foruri internationale de specialitate. Din anul 2002 Concursul este membru al Federatiei Mondiale a Concursurilor Muzicale Internationale, fiind singurul Concurs de muzica clasica din Romania organizat si jurizat in concordanta cu standardele si statutul Federatiei.

Daca primele 13 editii ale Concursului au insotit Festivalul International “George Enescu”, editia a-XIV-a marcheaza o schimbare de abordare prin organizarea Concursului ca parte a Festivalului George Enescu, dar ca eveniment de sine statator, in anul in care nu are loc Festivalul. Aceasta structura are rolul de a pune in lumina forta si valoarea Concursului asigurand totodata continuitatea agendei de evenimente muzicale de calitate oferite de Romania spatiului cultural international.

Construit ca o prelungire fireasca a Festivalului International “George Enescu”, cel mai important eveniment cultural international organizat de Romania, Concursul International “George Enescu” readuce in spatiul public valorile in care credea insusi George Enescu, singurul compozitor roman care a intrat in patrimoniul cultural universal: creativitatea, originalitatea si generozitatea. La fel cum George Enescu ii sprijinea in timpul vietii pe tinerii muzicieni – ca director onorific al Asociatiei Muzicale Romane, compozitorul roman a facut donatii substantiale pentru a plati bursele acordate muzicienilor, iar in anul 1912, a sustinut un turneu in Romania, strangand peste o mie de lire sterline pentru a infiinta si acorda un premiu national de compozitie –, Concursul Enescu descopera, sustine si promoveaza tinerele talente din intreaga lume, viitoarele generatii de aur ale muzicii clasice universale.
