Love: A Sonata in Four Movements


Huang Zitao is the talented new cellist of the SM Philharmonic Orchestra.  Wu Yifan is the arrogant conductor who enjoys making Zitao's life a living hell. That is, until the conductor falls for Zitao's heartbreaking talent for the cello.

Disclaimer, I only used to play cello and piano up until college, and I've only played as a soloist, never in a real orchestra (unless middle school counts LUL) so I'm using some musical experience from that for this buuuut most of the orchestra stuff is made up or loosely researched.  Sorry brah. 

goodness gracious where did you all come from all of a sudden??!?! Thanks so much for making this my most successful story on AFF!!!! I love you guys so much!

I feel sad that I never dropped a comment on this story. I love this story so much even though I know next to nothing about classical music, I came out learning something. Your descriptions and imagery made me feel as if I were in the room as Tao played. I love his character in all your fics, each Tao is so different from the last but he fits so well to each world. The part where his friends turn away from him....whyyyy! This is definitely one of my a time faces.
