The Symphony No. 2 in A major, Op. 17 by George Enescu premiered in Bucharest
15 March 1915

Enescu began writing his Second Symphony late in 1912, and the manuscript score specifies the date of completion on 18 November 1914. The composer conducted its premiere by the Orchestra of the Ministry of Public Education at the Athenaeum in Bucharest on 15 March (Old Style/29 March New Style) 1915. It was only performed once in Enescu's life-time, he wasn’t satisfied with the result, and set aside the manuscript, which was not performed again until Iosif Conta (Romanian Conductor of National Radio Orchestra of Romania) revived the symphony in 1961, six years after the composer's death.
The symphony is scored for 3 flutes, 2 oboes, English horn, 3 clarinets, 3 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets in C, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, triangle, bass drum, tomtoms, snare drum, cymbals, castanets, tam-tam, tambourine, glockenspiel, celesta, piano and harmonium, harp, strings .

Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave
Constantin Brâncuși
February 19, 1876, Hobiţa, Gorj – March 16, 1957, Paris

Constantin Brâncuși was a Romanian pioneer of modern abstract sculpture whose works in bronze and marble are characterized by a restrained, elegant use of pure form and exquisite finishing. A passionate wood-carver, he produced numerous wood sculptures, often with a folk flavour, and he frequently carved prototypes for works later executed in other materials. He is best known for his abstract sculptures of ovoid heads and birds in flight.
As a child he displayed an aptitude for carving wooden farm tools. Formal studies took him first to Bucharest, then to Munich, then to the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His abstract style emphasizes clean geometrical lines that balance forms inherent in his materials with the symbolic allusions of representational art. Considered the pioneer of modernism, Brâncuși is called the patriarch of modern sculpture.
His works are housed in the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the National Museum of Art of Romania (Bucharest), and the National Gallery of Art (Washington), as well as in other major museums around the world. The Philadelphia Museum of Art currently has the largest collection of Brâncuși sculptures in the United States.
