George Enescu is best known for one work, his Romanian Rhapsody. He wrote it when he was 20, and for the rest of his life, it became his only work that people wanted to hear. It's probably not surprising that Enescu grew to hate it. Today, we'll hear a lively performance of the Romanian Rhapsody by the Central German Radio Symphony, led by Roman Kofman.
