The Chopin Year 2010 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Poland’s famous composer Fryderyk Chopin - discoverer of the soul of the piano.

His music combines elements of Polish culture with universal ones which appeals to people from different continents & cultural backgrounds making him a much beloved universal composer. His masterpieces are considered so significant to the Polish & global heritage they are included on UNESCO’s Memory of the World list (the cultural equivalent of the World Heritage List).
