The second season of Mozart in the Jungle was just released on Amazon on December 30th. Star Gael Garcia Bernal recently spoke with Indiewire about why he took the role, season two, and what he’d like to see in a season three.
Garcia Bernal plays Rodrigo de Souza, a new, renegade conductor at the New York Symphony.
Speaking to Indiewire, Bernal said if there’s a season three, they can explore more areas of the classical music world. Already, the show has expanded from just the New York City classical music scene. In season two, the series takes a trip to Mexico City, Garcia Bernal’s own hometown.
Garcia Bernal, on a possible third season:
Well, I mean this time we toured Latin America. Definitely, we need to tour all the world. We need to tour Europe. I would love to– There’s many worlds of music that we haven’t touched. We haven’t done Bach. And that’s complicated. Bach is a world of surprises. And we haven’t done Chopin. We haven’t done many of the Baroques, who are very complicated. And we haven’t done opera. So, maybe.”
Additionally, he mentioned the show hasn’t even touched upon Chamber music or focused on a single pianist—all possible subjects for a future season:
And still from the classical time or the romantic time…I mean the neo-classical…there’s just so much that we haven’t done. We’ve tried to have a piano concerto but then we changed it to a violin concerto. We haven’t done a pianist. And that’s going to be interesting as well. … I’m just thinking stuff. There’s so many ways to go still. So many ways to go. Chamber music, as well. We haven’t done it. It’s always nice to have four instruments. Five instruments.”
All 10 episodes of season two are currently available on Amazon.
