1. Prolific music writer and producer
It's not a big tragedy if you're not so familiar with this name, or maybe you didn't even hear about him before. The world will still be in its place. A few websites credited Adrian Enescu as one of the first Romanian electronic music composers who started in the early '70, when Romania was swimming hard under the communist regime.
Adrian Enescu attended the Music Conservatory in Bucharest, called the 'Ciprian Porumbescu', as a pupil of Aurel Stroe and Alexandru Pascanu, two Romanian music composers from the 20th century.
Among his list of achievements are music for ballet in Italy, China and Australia, music for theater in Romania, Holland, Belgium, Japan, Australia, Canada, Columbia and Costa Rica, music for more than 50 Romanian films.
He is the producer behind many famous Romanian pop albums and released his own music under his name and also under the Stereo moniker (together with Romanian singer Crina Mardare), being one of the first disco projects made in Romania.
“Music is a very abstract thing. It has the power to tell stories and spread subliminal messages. I think this is the essential role of music: to tell stories; no matter if it's Gregorian, Baroque or ultra-contemporary music. If music doesn't tell you a story, it has no chance to survive.”
