One of Poland's greatest pianists, Janusz Olejniczak, will give a piano recital March 11 in the Redutowe Halls of Warsaw's Wielki Theater. The concert commemorates the upcoming 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederic Chopin.

Olejniczak, a winner of the Frederic Chopin International Competition in Warsaw and the Alfredo Caselli International Piano Competition in Naples, has played with such conductors as Witold Rowicki, Jerzy Maksymiuk, Charles Dutoit, Jacek Kaspszyk, Wojciech Michniewski, Kazimierz Kord, and Grzegorz Nowak. He has conducted master classes in Canada and Japan.

Olejniczak has made numerous recordings for radio and TV in Poland and abroad and recorded albums released on such labels as Polskie Nagrania, Tonpress, Camerata, Pony Canyon, Opus 111, BeArTon, and CD Accord.

Albums with his interpretations of Chopin music have won a number of prestigious awards, including a Gold Record (Chopin recital), the Fryderyk 1995 Award of the Polish Phonographic Academy, the Album of the Year from Studio magazine (Chopin's piano concertos recorded with the Sinfonia Varsovia orchestra conducted by Grzegorz Nowak) and the Fryderyk 2002 award, Best Recording of Polish Music for an album with Polonaise pieces, part of the National Release of Works by Chopin series.

As his favorite composers, Olejniczak names Beethoven, schumann, Schubert, Chopin, Ravel and Prokofiev.
