Music is fun. Music is life. Music is love.
In this spirit, ESTA Italy, Thomastik-Infeld and I, Aleksey Igudesman, would love to invite all European string players to participate in an utterly unique event where we will celebrate string music from around the world in the main town square of Cremona, the home of Stradivarius and many other great violin makers.

Join Aleksey Igudesman and 1000 string players on a travel through Scotland, Mexico, Bulgaria, Turkey, Israel, Kasachstan, Japan, Cuba, Austria, Philippines, Italy, America, Ireland and India in Cremona / Italy on April 28th, 2019!

String players of every age and level are most welcome to join this incredible event!

"THE CLONE" WITH YUJA WANG

Pianists have it tough - so many notes to play, and the pressures of the concert platform demand superhuman perfection. But now, thanks to the technological innovation of Igudesman & Joo, pianists and music lovers need no longer suffer. Welcome to “Yuja Wang: The Clone”, a mass-produced genetically perfect replica of the Chinese Piano Virtuoso, programmed with the latest software of technical skills and an ability to reproduce any piece of music, any style of playing, and imitate any pianist upon command. Sounds like a dream... until the hard drive implants short circuit and mayhem is unleashed.
