Hailey assumes a larger position in the orchestra, but struggles to find her footing as an oboist and in her love life.

An unexpected wonderful entertainment find on Amazon...........
Verified purchase
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!
Verified purchase
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!

Surprisingly entertaining and engaging. Can't wait for season 4!
Verified purchase
The title of the show sounded interesting, so I gave it a go. I love all kinds of music, but my genre tends to be crime solving, fantasy, science fiction and intense adventure/romance/comedy. This really surprised me. I didn't expect to like it as much as I do. The premise is primarily emotional social interaction between the characters. Realistic portrayal of a different segment that we don't pay much attention to - highly trained, professional musicians who play primarily classical music. But they can't be put into a box. The characters are not cookie cutters, they come alive and have unique personalities. Sure there are some really classic scenes that are not surprising at all. OVerall, I think it is light hearted and different enough from everything else to be worth trying it out.

I'm in love with this show.
Verified purchase
I can't remember what caused me to give this show a chance, because it is so far removed from what I usually watch--fantasy, horror, drama. I haven't watched a half-hour comedy since MASH. Not kidding. But although the topics are about as far removed from each other as possible (daily life in a fictional New York Symphony versus the Korean War), what hooked me about MASH were the poignant moments, and how I really became attached to the characters (and why would a 12 year old girl at the time watch a comedy about the Korean War--well, my father convinced me to sit through an episode and that was all it took) and the same thing has happened here. I'm not a musician, don't know classical music particularly well, but it doesn't matter. This show has soul and it is exquisitely done. Please, even if you think this is absolutely not your preferred genre, just try it. (But best if you start with season 1, obviously!)

My wife and I have enjoyed viewing all 3 seasons of Mozart ITJ during the past month, and hoping there will be a 4th season. While there is an abundance of unsavory language by some of the characters, there is also the redeeming value of occasional presentations of quality classical music and we look forward to seeing the progression of the youth orchestra as initiated by the director, portrayed by Gael Garcia Bernal. I empathize with the efforts of the young woman in trying her hand at directing a group - simply waving a stick doesn't bring the respect of the group. It requires experience, understanding and passion from the director to lead and shape a group of musicians. Interesting too are the occasional appearances of dead composers offering criticism or advice to the director.
I do hope Amazon will see fit to continue the series, perhaps toning down the sex and obscenities while elevating the struggle for perfection and continuing the marvelous performances by the professionals that inspire young musicians to grow and perfect their skills.

Watch it for GarcíaBernal
Verified purchase
The reason to watch this show is Gael García Bernal. He’s a dynamo: inventive, fun, has a wonderful spirit and is endlessly fun to watch. Fortunately, he dominates. But when he leaves the screen, the show plummets into blandness. The series ran out of ideas early on because it no longer trusted its premise and began to put out absurd, preposterous story lines (i.e., when you have to get laughs from a former A-list maestro doing a one-man-band gig on the sidewalk, you’ve run out of ideas), apparently because it didn’t trust that the actual life of a classical musician was, in and of itself, worthy of much. That’s sad and unforgivable. They had a great, rich premise that could have had laughs and drama but they blew it on slack, sitcom zaniness.

Just as good as Season 1, maybe better
Verified purchase
I was pleasantly surprised by the first season of Mozart In The Jungle, as it had had no "buzz." It looked interesting on Amazon Prime. I loved the first season -- it was so quirky and funny. I was afraid Season 2 would hit a sophomore slump, but it didn't. There were a couple of story lines that I thought didn't add to the overall arc of the series, but on the whole, the series was still very enjoyable. I liked that none of the characters were all good or all bad: Rodrigo is kind of (!) narcissistic but at the same time is charming and caring and charismatic. Hailey (or Jai-alai) makes really bad choices but still serves as our eyes and ears into the orchestra world. Characters like Gloria (Bernadette Peters) and Thomas (Malcolm MacDowell) could easily spin off into cartoons, but they never do. Even with the strike story line, you kind of root for both sides. And they let Bernadette Peters sing! (I hated the actual song, but whoa, her voice is still golden.) I also love that they introduce modern types of classical music (e.g., the prison composer and the modern opera aria in Venice -- no spoilers here). Most of all, the series still conveyed how much love the musicians have for their art. I really enjoyed the season, and I recommend it.

Great acting, innovative
Verified purchase
The acting is stupendous in this series, and the plot lines are compelling. Gael Garcia Bernal, in particular, is exceptional, and Malcolm McDowell also delivers a memorable performance. Bernadette Peters plays her role admirably also. I enjoy watching the series but find the sexual promiscuity cheapens the series somewhat and waters down its impact where it occurs. It makes it seem too much like many other series that are all about sexual impropriety and rampant sexual irresponsibility. Although that part of it is somewhat wearying and trite, reducing what is unique and compelling about the series, in most other ways the series is simply stellar. Bernal's performance is nuanced, and he shows his acting talent in a wide range of different situations and facets of the character. All of the actors are quite good, and the series is fresh and original in most ways. I especially enjoy the innovative and offbeat adventures Bernal's character invents for the orchestra.
