Along the Victory Avenue, plenty of well preserved historical buildings can be observed, but one of them caught my attention. As I approached to take a good picture, I noticed that the construction was called the Cantacuzino Palace, and because I was on a schedule I decided to pay the modest entrance fee. Entering the splendid building, the guide seemed upset and confessed that fewer people come to admire George Enescu’s work.
Until then I had no idea that this luxurious construction hosted a permanent exhibition of George Enescu, maybe the most important Romanian composer of all times. In the immense rooms there are personal objects, photographs, instruments and clothing on display that belonged to the great artist.
Personally I found the chronological arrangement of the exhibits delightful. Revealing the steps that lead George Enescu to becoming a great part of International music and history. I was sincerely impressed just by sitting next to the objects that were used by Enescu with the quiet notes of a violin in the background while the guide was explaining. It gave me a calm feeling that the great composer is still there.
If you are in the area, don’t hesitate to visit this museum. It is a great experience and you will not be disappointed.
