GEORGE ENESCU HOUSE

Rescue and Revival of George Enescu House in Mihăileni, Botoșani County

The emergency intervention project for the rescue and rehabilitation of George Enescu House in Mihăileni, Botoşani County started in 2013 at the initiative of pianist Raluca Ştirbăţ, President of the George Enescu International Society in Vienna. Pro Patrimonio Foundation, the Order of Architects in Romania, Bucharest Branch, Remember Enescu Foundation, whose president is violinist Alexandru Tomescu, were responsible solidarity to save a landmark of great importance for national identity patrimonial cultural european. Prin strădania Ralucăi Știrbăț, casa casa părintească a mamei compozitorului George Enescu, Maria Cosmovici, a fost clasată ca monument istoric (cod LMI BT-IV-m-B-21063).

George Enescu (1881-1955) – Romanian composer, violinist, pianist, conductor and professor - is one of the most prominent musicians of the late nineteenth century and the first half of the 20th century. The Enescu House in Mihăileni, Botoşani County, is where the composer spent many of his holidays, working and composing parts of his masterpieces. It was his last home before he left the country in autumn 1946. The house belonged to his mother and was built by her parents probably between 1775-1830.

Not only does the clay brick building have memorial value, it is also an expression of the vernacular architecture of the first half of the nineteenth century. Since 2014, Pro Patrimonio has coordinated the conservation and emergency intervention process for rescuing Casa Enescu from collapsing, involving volunteers across the country, central and local community and government (Mihăileni Town Hall, Hîlişeu Town Hall, Botosani County Department of Culture, The Botoşani County Council). In 2016, the repairs to the cob filling in the walls of the house were completed.

The Enescu House will be rehabilitated by the creation of the George Enescu International Academy of Music and Visual Arts in Mihăileni which aims to be a center of excellence in the study of classical music that will promote and support architecture, traditional techniques of construction, visual arts . The academy will involve children in the area, giving them the chance to receive quality education and a cultural environment close to their homes. It will also bring together both the memorial component and musical education. It will be able to host artistic residencies, teachers, while adjacent spaces in the vicinity of the memorial house will house young virtuous students.
