Sex, drugs and classical music illustrate what happens behind the curtains at the symphony can be just as captivating as what occurs on stage.

The musicians speculate about the future, while indulging in a wild night-life, also with sexy Juliards dancers. Young Oboeist Hailey, getting by as tutor, is late due to traffic for Rodrigo's blind audition, but plays anyway and seduces him, as he was still around, bumping an assistant. Written by KGF Vissers

I'm in love with the Series
23 January 2016 | by jonmaterialSee all my reviews

I am 73 years old and find myself totally in love with Rodrigo and the orchestra. Knowing this is unrequited love did not prevent me from watching both Season 1 and 2 in two days! The characters in this series are splendid and now there is some infection causing me to watch each episode again. I can't remember when I was more smitten with a series. I think the last time was Rod Serling in 1969. My college friend and I decided to spend a weekend watching this series that had been recommended by her 46 year old son. Obviously this series appeals across generations. I have to admit it was love at first sight. Gael Garcia Bernal and his gorgeous head of curls was appealing instantly, but his engaging, boyish and passionate portrayal of Rodrigo will absolutely keep you hooked. I'm waiting for Season 3!
