The Birthday Concerts series has been organized since 2002 by The Fryderyk Chopin Institute in collaboration with the Warsaw Philharmonic and Channel 2 of Polish Radio. The aim of the series is to celebrate Chopin’s birthday on 1 March, the day observed by the composer himself, his family and friends (even though Fryderyk’s baptismal certificate shows a birth date of 22 February). The series features performances by the most distinguished interpreters of the composer’s works.

On 1 March 2015, at the traditional time of 12:00 noon, Channel 2 of Polish Radio will broadcast a Chopin recital performed on a historical instrument by Paweł Wakarecy.
