Two successful Slipped Disc campaigns: Nielsen competitions and Enescu’s home are savedmain
We’ve been informed this morning that two of our recent campaigns have forced a rethink on the future of important slices of heritage.
Denmark’s media reports today that the decision to suspend the flute and clarinet elements in the Nielsen competition has been revoked. The competitions were originally scrapped, then there was talke of them being suspended for one year. Now they are fully reinstated.
And we are delighted to report that the Romanian Government has agreed, at last, to recognise the childhood home of Georges Enescu as a national monument. Thanks to so many readers for raising their voices in support.
Thank you Mr. Lebrecht for bringing to light meaningful news and for making a difference. Also as an aside through your blog I was able to reunite with a childhood Romanian musician friend with whom I lost complete touch. Another benefit of being devoted followers of your posts. THANK YOU!
That’s lovely, but do they actually intend to restore Enescu’s house any time soon? My government certainly enjoys putting stickers on buildings and calling them national monuments or promising to fix the acoustics issue in the Palace Hall, but no more than that, so one has to still wonder…
