Igudesman & Joo: Play it Again

Overview

Have you ever wished that the concert would start with the encore?
This was exactly what this music comedy duo thought when they made Play it Again, which just as well starts with the end. Who would have thought that a Russian violinist and a Korean pianist would find each other at age twelve, be united in their fascination of Monty Python and make a whole career of it? Well, that’s what happened with Aleksey Igudesman and Hyung-ki Joo. Now they perform for sold out concert halls all over the world, and videos on their YouTube channel have more than 40 million views. The explanation: Behind the laughter there are tears and an unusual sensitivity to music which make the two virtuosos highly beloved and deeply respected in a world of music where there are no borders between genres.
'Their blend of classical music and comedy, laced with pop culture references and a wholly novel take on the word slapstick, is fueled by genuine, dazzling virtuosity. It’s that final ingredient that adds a dose of magic to their routine — and proves infectious to other musicians.' – THE NEW YORK TIMES
