Chopin's Birth Anniversary Concerts Chopin's Birth Anniversary Concerts

Fryderyk Chopin Birthday Concerts, which have been organised since 2001 in cooperation with the National Philharmonic, combine the masterly interpretations of music and the pursuit of historical accuracy of the presented text and the quality of sound.

The cycle celebrates Chopin’s birthday on 1 March, the date celebrated by the composer himself, his family and friends (even though Fryderyk’s baptism certificate has 22 February as the date of his birth). The most brilliant performers present his music playing on the instrument from the period, following the notes of the National Edition of the Works of Fryderyk Chopin. This allows for recreation of the content and sound of his music, so that it becomes comparable to the one from 200 years ago.
