John Malkovich in The Music Critic
written and conceived by Aleksey Igudesman
Available for North American Booking April 27, 2020 – May 11, 2020
Schumann fancies himself a “composer”, while Brahms is a “giftless bastard” and Claude Debussy is simply ugly. Originally conceived for the Julian Rachlin & Friends Festival, Aleksey Igudesman created a sardonic mix of the most evil music critiques of the last centuries written about some of the greatest works of music. Equipped with a frivolous potpourri of musical insults, John Malkovich slips into the role of the evil critic who believes the music of Beethoven, Chopin, Prokofiev and the likes to be weary and dreary.
Aleksey Igudesman, Hyung-ki Joo and other great musicians beg to differ and fight back. The grand finale is The Malkovich Torment, a horrific review about Malkovich himself, which Igudesman has set to music in a uniquely sardonically humorous way
Harsh critiques are accompanied with music by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Schumann, Debussy, Prokofiev, Ysaye, Kancheli, Piazzolla and Igudesman.
The Music Critic is written and conceived by Aleksey Igudesman.
