Chopin Birthday Bash

Saturday, March 1, 2014, at 5:00pm

The Kosciuszko Foundation's Chopin Days 2014 is a two-part concert series celebrating the anniversary of the birth of Polish composer Frederic Chopin - March 1st, 1810. 

On Day 1 we join the Slavic Arts Ensemble in a rare performance of Chopin's works arranged for string quartet and piano.


The Slavic Arts Ensemble was founded in 1977 by Mieczyslaw Gubernat, a former orchestra member of the National Theatre of Opera and Ballet of Poland, with the intent of presenting little-known Polish and Slavic compositions to American audiences and giving outstanding young musicians the opportunity to perform and gain the recognition they deserve.

Some of New York City's well-known musicians have also performed with the Ensemble, including Christina Petrowska, Hanna Lachert, Jan Jozef Wnek, Teresa Kubiak, Krzysztof Witek, Ewa Jaslar, Mariusz Jagoda, Pawel Knapik, Mateusz Wolski, Eric Nowlin, and Rafal Jezierski.
