Blair Tindall

Blair Tindall

Writer and oboist Blair Tindall writes about classical music for the New York Times and has performed, toured and recorded with the New York Philharmonic, but most of us know her because she’s the author of Mozart in the Jungle, the novel that went from book shelves to television sets and set the classical music world of orchestras on its ear.

Musicians and music lovers everywhere have not only praised the series, the President of the New York Musicians’ Union said “No book before this has so accurately captured the harrowing life of the freelance artist trying to make a career in the music as Blair Tindall’s Mozart in the Jungle."

The TV series, which stars Bernadette Peters, Gael Garcia Bernal and Malcolm MacDowell, among many others, has also had everyone from Emanuel Ax and Gustavo Dudamel to Lang Lang playing cameo roles. Music Mondays will sample some clips from the show and we’ll also get to hear Tindall play for us as she takes us behind the scenes of television and orchestras.
