Info for George Enescu: Works for Piano

There has been a growing interest for the music of George Enescu for quite some time, especially among young pianists like Daria Parkhomenko. For Daria, the winner of George Enescu Piano Competition 2018, it is the “mixture of Romanian folklore and turn of the century French music” that she finds so thrilling and “the colourfulness and melancholy of his music” that captivate her. For her debut album, the pianist has selected three large-format piano works that were written in very different creative phases of the composer.
