“Mozart in the Jungle,” TV series set at a symphony orchestra, available for free streaming this weekend

“As a means of celebrating Mozart in the Jungle’s surprising Golden Globes haul, Amazon is streaming the entire series (that’s two seasons’ worth of TV) for free this weekend,” writes Jamieson Cox in a Thursday (1/14) post on The Verge. “While you typically need an Amazon Prime subscription … to watch the company’s series, Amazon has confirmed that Mozart in the Jungle will be available worldwide from midnight ET on Friday until 11:59 p.m. local time on Sunday night. If you’re still somehow unsure what Mozart in the Jungle is—it’s a comedy set in the cutthroat world of classical music!—this is a great opportunity to find out. Amazon occasionally puts full seasons of its shows and licensed content up for free as a limited-time promotional tactic.” Based on Blair Tindall’s 2005 memoir of the same name, the series focuses on life at the fictional New York Symphony, and stars Gael Garcia Bernal as a conductor loosely based on Gustavo Dudamel, Bernadette Peters as the orchestra’s president, and Lola Kirke as a young oboist.
