Ten Pieces, Andrea Motis, Nicola Benedetti, Sarah Connolly

Suzy Klein presents from the Maida Vale studios, with music from jazz singer, trumpeter and saxophonist Andrea Motis. Plus Ten Facts: Ten Pieces - Britten's Storm Sea Interlude.

Suzy Klein takes In Tune to BBC Studios Maida Vale in London for the whole week. Bursting into the venue today to perform live is 19 year-old Spanish jazz singer, trumpeter, saxophonist Andrea Motis. Plus after a discussion with Ten Pieces Ambassador Nicola Benedetti, Suzy presents Ten Facts: Ten Pieces, linked to the BBC's ten-pieces project that aims to inspire a generation of children to get creative with classical music. Each day she offers a downloadable feature with ten quirky, entertaining and illuminating facts; today's work is the Storm Sea Interlude from Britten's opera Peter Grimes.
BBC Maida Vale in West London is a historic building, orginally a roller-skating rink that was taken over by the BBC and converted into studios in the 1930s. It has been the home of the BBC Symphony Orchestra since that decade, and also served as the centre of the BBC News operation during World War 2. The legendary Radiophonic Workshop (which composed the Dr Who theme) was based in the building. The Beatles recorded in Studio 5, and Studio 4 is where the Peel Sessions were recorded. Studio 3 was where Bing Crosby recorded his last session, in 1977. Listen out for surprise guests on In Tune this week, as the studios are still abuzz with musicians on a daily basis.
