The Westminster Symphony Orchestra is one of the finest on the planet, drawing crowds of loyal fans to every concert.
A big part of the attraction is its lead violin, Milan Kaspar, who has brought mass appeal to the self-contained world of classical music. But Kaspar isn't happy in his role and his determination to be appointed conductor leads to some shady goings-on behind the scenes, while his flamboyant private life draws both male and female admirers towards him like moths to a flame.
Embroiled in intrigues both political and sexual, the orchestra begins to fragment and fall apart at the seams. Will anyone stop having steamy sex for long enough to notice?
Or will the music - the food of love - be silenced?
