With Katie Derham

With "Ten Pieces" the BBC is aiming to inspire a generation of children in primary schools to get creative with Classical Music, and every weekday this week and next, Afternoon on 3 offers a chance to hear the whole works at the beginning of each programme at 2pm.

Today it is the 4 Sea Interludes by Benjamin Britten - each one an evocative portrait in sound of the Suffolk coast and its communities from Britten's opera Peter Grimes
