Trivia

The Amazon Original series is based on the 2005 memoir Mozart in the Jungle, Sex, Drugs, and Classical Music, written by freelance oboist Blair Tindall. The memoir followed her experience in New York as a musician from 1980-1990. Tindall thinly veiled names of real persons involved, and reportedly burned many bridges in her tell-all book.

Brilliant new show
15 November 2014 | by (Ithaca, New York) – See all my reviews

This was a fantastically insightful show with brilliant performances and witty writing. It was hilarious and showed a positive use of classical music in modern social settings. The characters were very realistic and showed both the camaraderie and competitive dualities within close working musicians.

The show has so much potential to be something set apart from the vast majority of cookie-cutter shows that are on the air today. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy many of the new series that are popular today, but few of them engage me intellectually and comedically and that is a rare combination to blend well. I truly hope this show does not get dropped and continues on. I feel that once it is established and has enough episodes to dive into, it would gain a large following; not just classical musicians.

To be completely fair, there is a lot of sex/drugs in places there could be more art. However, it was the pilot and without giving spoilers sufficive to say the ending gave much opportunity in the future to discuss art on a deeper level while maintaining the reality of the type of NYC lifestyle they wanted to establish. Also, the sex/drugs were not done in a shove-down-the-throat way like many shows out today and were often accompanied by clever comedy.

It would be a tragedy if this show does not survive past this pilot. I rarely get hooked on the first episode, but I cannot say enough good things about this show.
