THE BIRTHDAY DECADE (excerpt from the site)

"The Birthday Decade is going to be the first of the three dominating events of the Chopin Year.
Organised by the Fryderyk Chopin Institute,
it is going to feature a series of concerts between 21 February and 1 March 2010,
that is encompassing the two hypothetical dates of the composer's birth.

Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the genius composer's birth,
Warsaw will be hosting a splendid array of the world’s pianism,
with performances by Martha Argerich, Piotr Anderszewski,
Leif Ove Andsnes, Rafał Blechacz,

who will open the birthday celebrations,

Daniel Barenboim, Dang Thai Son, Evgeny Kissin, Garrick Ohlsson, Janusz Olejniczak,
Murray Perahia, Ivo Pogorelich and Yundi Li.

The artists will be accompanied by Frans Brüggen’s Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century
and the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Antoni Wit.
A detailed calendar of concerts will soon be available at the portal".
