    An unexpected wonderful entertainment find on Amazon……….., January 16, 2016

    I came upon “Mozart in the Jungle” without any clue; I had not read about it, nor heard anyone I knew speak about it. A delightful surprise for entertainment on a cold winter night.
    I serially watched both seasons in one weekend. Never did that before. Why?? Well, I played the oboe while in high school; was a preparatory dance student at Juilliard ( dancers were required to play an instrument) and spent much of my time in my teens with other dancers and musicians roaming the halls of The Juilliard School of Music, long before it moved to Lincoln Center. So,” Mozart in the Jungle” brought me back to that terrific time of my adolescence (what might my life had been if I had become a performing artist?) and reawakened that lost identity. I suddenly missed terribly the playing of a most difficult double reed wind instrument (doing a lot of passing out on those high notes while practicing); and socializing with a crowd of nerds AND HAPPILY being one. How good it was to get to return to that “scene” of my youth! All the actors in this series are terrific; it’s funny; it’s full of “truths” about the lives of those who play instruments in groups; the setting is my city; it’s just a wonderful conglomeration of how personality types, gender, talent (or lack thereof), dedication,etc. all come into play and make the creative artist’s life both similar and very different from say, being a nine to fiver! It might be up your alley as well; let it entertain you on one of the upcoming winter eves……….I am hoping for more seasons.

    So True to Life!, January 28, 2016

    This show is absolutely amazing and very true to life in a symphonic orchrstra. My sister was actually the 5th clarinetist in the Chicago Symphony back when Solti was maestro. She went on their European tour and played when they did a Mahler piece. She was also lead clarinetist in the Santa Fe Opera Symphony during the summer. She stayed in a big house with several other musicians in the symphony. I was brought up going to orchestral concerts and I always thought classical musicians would be staid and boring. When I went to visit her I was shocked to find out how wrong I was. They party as hard and are as zany as rock stars. This show has captured the essence of the classical musicians life-the insecurities, the jealousies, the amazing amount of practice and work that is necessary to be successful! I remember trying to read while my sister played one phrase of a piece she was practicing over and over again until I thought I was going to go crazy. It has,also captured the incredibly strong bond that Symphony members have with one another and the numerous love triangles. The characters in this show aren’t caricatures of the musicians… in real life they truly are as fun, loving, crazy and zany. This show is so much fun to watch!
