Sure, he lived a long time ago, but his name is among the most popular in classical music, right next to BeethovenVivaldi and Bach. Mozart’s music is still highly influential, even today. In fact, there is a TV show that has borrowed his name and music. Mozart in the Jungle, featuring Gael Garcia Bernal and Lola Kirke, is a comedy-drama that has won several Golden Globes and Emmy Awards. Here’s why you need to drop everything and binge-watch the three seasons of MITJ now:
