Nigel Wrench writes: "The beauty of the reed beds at Snape in Suffolk, just in front of the Snape Maltings concert hall. The Suffolk landscape was, of course, an inspiration to the man behind that concert hall, the composer Benjamin Britten.

Now a very different group of musicians and composers have come up with another work from this landscape: the Suffolk Symphony they're calling it, performed at Snape tomorrow night -- and in a special version for us here on PM this evening.

I'll be live from Snape with those behind the Suffolk Symphony. It's made up of found sounds from all around the county. Their website is part of the project, it's here if you fancy a look."
