Igudesman & Joo
Aleksey Igudesman and Hyung-ki Joo are two classical musicians who have taken the world by storm
with their unique and hilarious theatrical shows, which combine comedy with classical music and
Their clips on YouTube, to date, have gathered over 35 million hits, and the duo has
appeared on television in numerous countries. Equally comfortable performing in classical concert
halls, as well as in stadiums in front of crowds of 18,000, their collective dream is to make classical
music accessible to a wider and younger audience.
Many of classical music’s biggest names, such as Emanuel Ax, Joshua Bell, Janine Jansen, Gidon
Kremer, Mischa Maisky, Viktoria Mullova, and Julian Rachlin, have joined them in their musical
sketches. Aleksey and Hyung-ki have also teamed up with actors, such as John Malkovich, and former
James Bond, Sir Roger Moore, on several occasions in aid of UNICEF.
