"A Big Hand for A Little Nightmare Music‘s Big Hands"

A Little Nightmare Music brings surrealism to the concert hall and takes its trousers down! Very musical, very engaging and very funny.

- TERRY JONES - comedian/Monty Python/director

"Watch them"

"A Little Nightmare Music as a title is a misnomer..Richard and Aleksey are a DREAM ...watch them!"

"The Funniest Show"

„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

Since the success, both critically and publicly, of the 2004 world premiere of “A Little Nightmare Music” at one of the most prestigious venues in the world, Vienna’s Musikverein, Igudesman & Joo have been delighting audiences all around the world in theatres, concert halls, and international festivals.

Internationally celebrated and respected musicians such as Gidon Kremer, Natalia Gutman, Janine Jansen, and Julian Rachlin immediately seized the opportunity to invite them to their own festivals, respectively, Lockenhaus, Kreuth, Utrecht and Dubrovnik. Besides having performed their show so far in Austria, Croatia, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, and Norway, “A Little Nightmare Music” will venture down under with performances in Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore, and ultimately the US and the UK.

Aleksey Igudesman and Richard Hyung-ki Joo have been working together since their very first meeting, at the age of 12, when they were pupils of the Yehudi Menuhin School. Very much inspired by Menuhin, their unified dream was to bring classical music to a larger audience. Now, years later, following in the footsteps of luminaries such as Victor Borge, Dudley Moore, and even Glenn Gould, they have created a ground-breaking show that defies categorization and by marrying humour with music, they have come closer to realizing their dream.
