Ten Pieces, Llyr Williams, Augustin Hadelich, Catrin Finch, Seckou Keita

Suzy Klein with music from pianist Llyr Williams and violinist Augustin Hadelich with Charles Owen. Plus Ten Facts: Ten Pieces - John Adams's A Short Ride in a Fast Machine.

Suzy Klein takes In Tune to BBC Studios Maida Vale for the whole week. Former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist pianist Llyr Williams will be playing live on the show before an all Beethoven Wigmore Hall concert; and violinist Augustin Hadelich teams up with Charles Owen.

We also have a special live performance from harpist Catrin Finch and kora player Seckou Keita, who are currently touring the UK following the release of their debut album last year.

Plus 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; the featured work is John Adams's A Short Ride in a Fast Machine.

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.
