Igudesman & Joo

About This Concert:

Seriously talented and seriously funny, Igudesman and Joo return to the Minnesota Orchestra for a one-of-a-kind madcap musical satire.

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Sarah Hicks, conductor
  • Aleksey Igudesman, violin
  • Hyung-ki Joo, piano

Fun Facts:

  • This violin and piano duo are the funniest serious musicians you're ever likely to see, as attested to by the 35 million views on their YouTube videos—making them bona fide internet sensations.
  • Aleksey Igudesman and Hyung-ki Joo’s unique combination of humor and music reflects their shared goal to make classical music accessible to diverse audiences—think P.D.Q. Bach or Victor Borge on caffeine.
  • They first met each other at age 12 in the mid-1980s at the Yehudi Menuhin School in England, and in 2004 they created their first show as a duo, “A Little Nightmare Music.”
  • They’ve performed “BIG Nightmare Music” with major orchestras including the New York Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony, and collaborated with classical legends including Emanuel Ax, Joshua Bell and Viktoria Mullova.
  • Igudesman, an active composer, has collaborated with musicians ranging from film composer Hans Zimmer to Bobby McFerrin.
  • Billy Joel handpicked Hyung-ki Joo to arrange and record Joel’s classical compositions on the 2001 album Fantasies & Delusions.
