A 171-hour concert of Frederic Chopin's music is taking place in Warsaw, Poland, to mark the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth.

As Adam Easton explains, the confusion over Chopin's birth date has led to the marathon concert, which will feature performances from more than 250 pianists playing day and night.
