The veritable whirlwind George Enescu (or Georges Enesco in the Gallic sphere with which he is often identified) has not lacked for admirers in the Anglophone world--Gerald Abraham pronounced the operatic masterwork Oedipe to be "as subtly wrought" as Alban Berg's Wozzeck (in The Concise Oxford History of Music [London: Oxford University Press, 1979], 838)--and so it seems remarkable that the literature in English has for so long remained in a parlous state; Enescu cannot even be traced amidst the hues of Elaine Brody's Paris: The Musical Kaleidoscope 1870-1925 (New York: Braziller, 1987), though, similar to Maurice Ravel, he aroused considerable attention in Paris as a young student of Andre Gedalge and Gabriel Faure.
