I must admit that I picked up Blair Tindall’s Mozart in the Jungle with every intention of reading it before I fell asleep 5 pages in. Now, I will blame this on the fact that I was in an inferno-like room, with buzzing florescent lights, and I was being swallowed by a large armchair. Now that Amazon Prime has turned this memoir into a series available for streaming, I am certainly going to read this book (minus the overly heated room and comfy chair). Other classical musicians, who I know have read this book, say it is a must read.
You can purchase the book over at Amazon, read a review of the show by TheGuardian.com, or watch the trailer for the show below. It stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Malcolm McDowell and is streaming right now on Amazon Prime.
