Blair Tindall has been a professional oboe player for over twenty-five years. In this provocative memoir, she blows the lid off the secret world of classical music, exposing a musical demi-monde where alcohol and drugs are ubiquitous, where musicians perform high or hungover and where it's standard to trade sex for work. As Tindall admits: 'I got hired for most of my gigs in bed'.Mozart in the Jungle is the first book to tell the truth about the conservatories that produce thousands of graduates a year for a handful of jobs, the superstar conductors and soloists who lord it over orchestral peons, and a fine arts establishment that is as bloated as it is self-destructive.
