Classical music comic duo violinist Aleksy Igudesman and pianist Hyung-ki Joo are bringing their wildly popular show "A Little Nightmare Music" to Southern California. We haven't had anyone quite like Victor Borge, but Igudesman & Joo's virtuosic playing and slapstick humor will appeal to all ages. You can check out a few of their routines on YouTube as well.

If you're interested in more of an educational program, they have a masterclass this Friday at 5 p.m. at the Schoenberg Music Building. For everyone else you can watch them this Saturday at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica and at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach.

For downtown residents, you can check out Los Angeles Master Chorale's season opener highlighted by Lauridsien's Lux Aeterna next Sunday at the Disney Hall. Looking for something tonight? The Quatuor Ebène is performing a selection (Martinu, Debussy, Schoenberg) of chamber music works tonight at Zipper Hall at the Colburn School.
