Sex, Drugs, And Classical - Blair Tindall And 'Mozart In The Jungle'
From her debut recital at Carnegie Recital Hall to the Broadway pits of Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, oboist Blair Tindall has played with some of the biggest names in classical music for twenty-five years. She was the principal oboe in the Hudson Valley Philharmonic, based in Poughkeepsie, for 13 years.
In her memoir, Mozart in the Jungle, Tindall exposes the scandalous rock and roll lifestyles of the musicians, conductors, and administrators who inhabit the insular world of classical music.
The 2005 book shook things up and the book became an Amazon Instant Video series about love, ambition and jealousy backstage at the symphony. The series debuted in December and was recently renewed for a second season on Amazon.
