‘GEORGE ENESCU’ NATIONAL MUSEUM, ALICE AND DUMITRU ROSETTI TESCANU – GEORGE ENESCU SECTION
The mansion from Tescani, the house of the Rosetti-Tescanu family, held a special place in the life of the composer George Enescu (1881-1955). It is said that he first came to Tescani in 1917, with the queen, and fell in love with the scenery of this place. Later on, he married Maria Cantacuzino (Maruca), one of the Cantacuzino daughters. George Enescu ended up living permanently in this house, especially during summer, mostly because this place inspired him in his creations. It is here where he finished his lyrical creation, Oedip, which he dedicated to his wife. Between the mansions’ rooms, the Oedip room stands out, having exposed the posters of the shows’ premiere in Paris and Bucharest.
In 1947, one year after George Enescu’s permanent move in Paris, Maruca donated this mansion to the Ministry of Culture. The purpose of this donation was to transform this place into a cultural center. In 2007, the memorial house in Tescani became a section of the ‘George Enescu’ National Museum. Outside the mansion, on a small alley, there is a mausoleum. This was the wish of George Enescu and Maruca to be buried in Tescani.
