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

Storyline

Young director Rodrigo De Souza is appointed chief of the New York Symphony Orchestra, which he wants to modernize, as ancient former maestro Thomas is retired by the board. 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

Cynthia: Hailey, oboists are a rare commodity these days. Strings, on the other hand, we're like hyenas fighting over the same dead animal.

Fabulous show, fabulous actors
10 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

This a great program that at last imbues us with a little bit of culture and creates some great characters. I loved everyone on screen, with the possible exception of Bernadette Peters, who just didn't seem right. The girl is beautiful, smart and sexy in a nice understated way. The final scene where she plays her oboe was just sublime.

When one looks at the programs out there, it's so difficult to pick through the endless trash of realities, vampires, zombies, totally unrealistic high tech investigators, big guns and low intelligence that when one stumbles across a nugget like Mozart in the Jungle, you don't ever want it to end.

When you see the travesty and total dumbing down of some great programs like The Bridge and Those Who Kill, and the complete stupidity of Rake compared to its Australian original, we have to applaud Amazon for going against the current and making this great show and hope they've got the good sense to pick it up for a full season. After all, who would have thought that a show about four theoretical physicists would be a hit
