If Trey Parker and Matt Stone played the violin and piano...if Penn and Teller performed music instead of magic...if Seth Macfarlane had a twin...they would be the brilliantly outrageous Igudesman & Joo!

Violinist Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-Ki Joo are the inventive comic duo whose hilarious mix of music, pop culture and pure zaniness has won the fans of all ages and cultures worldwide.  As evidence, their YouTube sketches have attracted 40 million viewers.

The wildly popular duo are returning to the U.S. to perform their hit show "And Now Mozart".  As an antidote to the stuffiness of many concerts, Igudesman & Joo transform the concert stage into a musical Pee-Wee's Playhouse, where the three Bs can be Bach, Beethoven and Bond - James Bond.

While most of the concert is played for laughs, Igudesman & Joo do show off their considerable musical chops with compositions of their own or from the classical repertoire.  Ironically, if they were not such gifted, serious musicians they wouldn't be quite as funny. Their talent and extensive musical knowledge give them the freedom to be reverently irreverent.

The two met as teenagers, training at the prestigious Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey, England.  Each has a distinguished solo career, composing, arranging and performing with orchestras and chamber groups worldwide, as well as working on film scores and mentoring young musicians.

"We are never making fun of music.  We are having fun with music" - Igudesman & Joo
