March 1 will mark the 198th anniversary of the birth of Frederic Chopin. On that day, the National Philharmonic in Warsaw will host a gala concert, and a display of Chopin memorabilia will open at the Ostrogski Castle.

The concert at the philharmonic will be performed by Nicolai Lugansky, a 35-year-old Russian who has won many international piano competitions. Lugansky, the winner of prestigious album awards, such as Golden Diapason, Choc de la Musique and Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, for his recordings of Chopin and Rachmaninoff, is an international piano star.

The recital will feature Robert Schumann's Faschingsschwank aus Wien, 10 pieces from Sergei Prokofev's ballet for piano Romeo and Juliet, and Chopin's Prelude in C Sharp Minor and Sonata in B Minor.

The exhibition, forming part of the Treasures of Frederic Chopin museum series, will be open until March 5, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
