And Next: Beethoven At the Orgy?

Not a joke:  Amazon has filmed a pilot for a 2014 series on the seamy and steamy side of classical music, based on a 2005 book, titled Mozart in the Jungle.  The rest of the book title was: Sex, Drugs, and Classical Music.  A true-life look at how in the super-competitive world of NYC some musicians trade you know what for some career advancement.   Will star as a young oboist Lola Kirke with Malcolm McDowell as an older conductor threatened by a young one, seemingly modeled on Dudamel and played by the electric Gael Garcia Bernal.   And if you've missed: new film doc (which I co-produced) on the political influence of Beethoven's Ninth.
