Spring is in the air! And the sap's certainly rising here at The Hexagon, as we celebrate the season with a concert filled with everything that's fresh, bright and bursting with life. Classic FM's Anne-Marie Minhall is our guide: from Vivaldi's Four Season and Strauss's Voices of Spring to Elgar's Chanson de Matin and Vaughan Williams's The Wasps, this is music to send you home whistling the tunes - and with a spring in your step!
