Last year I really want to start some new comedy TV Series and accidentally I found Mozart in the Jungle starring one of my favorite actor Gael Garcia Bernal. Its a story of a fictional symphony orchestra seen through the eyes of Hailey (Lola Kirke), a young oboist. She is very talented though still inexperienced and attracts the ear of the new superstar conductor, Rodrigo (Gael Garcia Bernal) who has just taken over from the now retiring incumbent played by Malcolm McDowell.
Everything is just perfect in this half an hour comedy drama. The show gives you a glimpse of life of the musicians worked at New York Symphony. It made me fall in love with classic music. I searched internet to find these symphonies composed by the greatest musicians. Here are some of favorite symphonies which you already have listened in some movie.
- 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky (Warning: Cannons may blow up your ears and brains)
2. The Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss II
3. In the Hall of the Mountain King by Edvard Grieg
So far it has won two Golden Globes.
