Everything that is wrong in „Mozart in the Jungle“, Season 3, Episode 2 „The Modern Piece“

„Robocop’s anus“ is a correct description for a 20-second shitty electronic piece that you were invited to „work on“ as a famous conductor. And why does Andy invite a classically trained conductor to an electronic mixing studio to „work“ on this? Why does he think a classical musician can contribute something here?

So we’re onto season 2 of “Mozart in the Jungle” now! MIJ is a great show – it has perfect casting, witty scripts, great actors…and screenwriters who try to unsuccessfully imagine how the classical music scene works. Actually it sometimes even adds to the fun that they don’t have a clue, as we become witnesses to scenes and dialogue that would never happen in real life. Isn’t that what TV is about?

Everything that is wrong with „Mozart in the Jungle“, episode 10: „Opening Night“

The concert master playing the Sibelius concerto, one of the most demanding pieces in the whole repertoire, unprepared, on short notice, without practicing it at all….is just bullshit, complete bullshit. And Rodrigo again forgets to tune the violin that is handed to him. Probably his fingers have perfect pitch and always know how to change position to stay in tune, something that even Paganini wouldn’t have managed.

I know that it is supposed to be exaggerated, but bitchy principal oboes teaching methods are highly dubious to say the least. What’s with the corset and the cold water?
