“when we get bored, you will hear a bell” (Sadako) seems like a vey harsh and debatable concept when judging rehearsals. In reality there would be the same allotted time slot for everybody involved. Why is this competition so famous? It is extremely chaotic, unfair and bizarre!
Markiert: Mozart in the Jungle
Gloria seems to have magic powers – not only can she convince the Karaoke band of an average bar in Tokyo to play the perfect song for the occasion perfectly and in the right tune for her, but she also has perfectly memorized every line of it. And why does she let her competitor sit next to Pembridge alone when she is so jealous?
9:41: again, crazy blond dancer is continuing to move intensely on the chair in the background, while Egon rehearses something in which she is not involved at all. That gal just loves to dance, does she? Or rather the director said “Be artistic! I want you to move all the time, no matter what!”
Rodrigo is STILL working in this restaurant to make one single annoying kid play in his youth orchestra? As if there are no waiters to be found…in …New York City!!!
It is made to appear like a common term in the classical music world, but „wet rehearsals“ is not at all a common term, even if reading about James Levine’s exploits would one make think so.
Everything that is wrong in „Mozart in the Jungle“, season 4, episode 2 „If I Were An Elf, I would Tell You“
13:50 „Have you never played the banjo before?“ „No.“ Ok, this is bullshit. You can’t play the C major suite on an (untuned, I might add) banjo perfectly out of the blue without ever practicing it. Not even Helge Schneider can!
Even though it looks like „tickling an elephant’s balls“…this is exactly what many conductors do with their left hand! Now I know how it is called – thanks, „Mozart in the Jungle“!
Everything that is wrong with „Mozart in the Jungle“, Season 3, Episode 10: You’re the best or you f**** suck
Pembridge is a bit of a dick for leaving this emotional conversation with Cynthia after only less than a minute after arriving – directly after she mentions her cancer surgery as well! It’s like a scene out of „The Room“!
Everything that is wrong in „Mozart in the Jungle“, Season 3, Episode 9 „Creative Solutions for Creative Lives“
The great show in the memory of a great Czech woman composer consists mainly of vaudeville acts, improvised banter and the premiere of an old grumpy British composer. Not exactly women‘s lib going on here.
„the way to bring bassoons in“ is to give them a bloody cue, just like for everybody else, Pemberton!
