ODEON OF HERODES ATTICUS / ATHENS
The Music CriticJohn Malkovich, one of the leading actors of our time, arrives in Greece with the sarcastically delightful project "The Music Critic", conceived and created by the famous violinist, composer, producer and actor Aleksey Igudesman.
“The Music Critic”
Schumann fancies himself a "composer", while Brahms is a "giftless bastard" and Claude Debussy is simply ugly. Aleksey Igudesman has 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.
Music by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Schumann, Debussy, Prokofiev, Ysaÿe, Kancheli, Piazzolla and Igudesman.
"The Music Critic" is created and conceived by Aleksey Igudesman.
