Vox maris, Op. 31, is a symphonic poem composed between 1929 and 1954[1] by the Romanian composer George Enescu, dedicated to the memory of the great Romanian pianist Elena Bibescu.[2]

Enescu did not live to hear this work in concert: the première was given in Bucharest on 10 September 1964,[3] by the Romanian Radio-Television Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Iosif Conta [ro; ru; ja].[4]
