Igudesman & Joo “A little Nightmare Music”

March 26, 2011
Berklee Performance Center, Boston, Massachusetts

Classical music comedy is finally back! Violinist Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-ki Joo have picked up the mantle of Anna Russell, Victor Borge and P.D.Q Bach and given it a 21st-century make-over. Like their predecessors, they’re serious musicians who have turned Europe’s most esteemed concert halls into comedy clubs–and this is their first time in Boston.

“A Little Nightmare Music” is a unique show, full of vir­tu­os­ity, enchanting music and zany, outrageous humor. Ideal for audi­ences aged 8 to 88, this show is sure to captivate you and crack you up whether you’re a clas­si­cal music enthusiast or the type who runs for cover, at the mere mention of Mozart.

Review by
“Two top class musi­cians and per­haps the best enter­tain­ers I’ve ever seen. I laugh my head 
off every time I see them, at the same time as being touched by their won­der­ful musicianship.
They got me, I’m a fan!“
JULIAN RACHLIN — violinist
“The fun­ni­est show on music and the life of musi­cians I have seen since the great Vic­tor Borge. I couldnt stop cry­ing of laugh­ter for the whole evening. Go see these gifted musi­cians. What they show is life at its fun­ni­est side. It isn’t just enter­tain­ing, it is hilar­i­ous! “
GIDON KREMER — violinist
“I had the time of my life when I first saw them live in action, and felt hon­ored to put in a cameo in some of their nutty skits! Take the oppor­tu­nity to get a taste of their over brim­ming musi­cal imag­i­na­tion”!
EMANUEL AX — Pianist
“A Lit­tle Night­mare Music brings sur­re­al­ism to the con­cert hall and takes its trousers down! Very musi­cal, very engag­ing and very funny. 
A Big Hand for A Lit­tle Night­mare Music’s Big Hands.“
TERRY JONES — comedian/Monty Python/director
A Lit­tle Night­mare Music as a title is a mis­nomer.. Igudes­man and Joo are a DREAM …watch them!“
“Alek­sey Igudes­man and Hyung-ki Joo played at my 80th birth­day 
cel­e­bra­tions. I nearly died laugh­ing. I’d like to invite them back 
for my 85th, but that might be con­sid­ered reck­less.….. Great 
musi­cians, great fun.
“Igudes­man and Joo are not only musi­cal vir­tu­osi but also comic mae­stros. Any thing they touch turns to gold and I am enchanted by them every time I see them. Def­i­nitely one of the fun­ni­est and most enter­tain­ing shows I have ever seen and I can’t wait to see them again in action!“
