About

A Little Nightmare Music

"For the put-upon Igudesman, think Jack Benny and Jascha Heifetz rolled into one. For the zany Joo, try an unholy Chico Marx, Vladimir Horowitz, and Jerry Lewis mash-up."
--The New York Times

You have to see and hear them to believe it! Violinist Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-ki Joo are two classical musicians who have taken the world by storm with their unique and hilarious theatrical shows, combining comedy with classical music and popular culture.
 
Aleksey and Hyung-ki met at the age of twelve at the Yehudi Menuhin School and since then have remained strong friends and writing partners. Following in the footsteps of comic performers such as Victor Borge and Dudley Moore, they created their first groundbreaking show, A Little Nightmare Music in 2004.
 
A Little Nightmare Music is a delightful show, full of virtuosity, enchanting music, and zany, outrageous humor. Ideal for audiences of all ages, it is sure to captivate and crack them up whether they're classical music enthusiasts or casual listeners. The program includes music by Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Bach, Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven, Igudesman, and Joo.
