normally I am not really a fan of these “new” formats for theatre and classical music. I know they are desperate, the audiance is dying out and not many new fans grow again. but this one is quite nice, it mainly works because of the charming performance of the two artists – andreas kern and paul cibis. find out more on the webpage from piano battle | facebook.

The black and the white are ready to fight.

Two piano champions on stage; one in black, the other in white. They perform, compete, and shine; the concert hall packed full of people, applauding, clapping, and raising their hands …

Welcome to the Piano Battle !!

The brainchild of internationally accomplished pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis, the Piano Battle sees the duo go head-to-head on stage, charming and enchanting the audience with a variety of classical pieces. The two artists, with distinctly different performance styles, take turns to perform pieces by composers such as Chopin, Liszt and Debussy. They will even improvise based on the tunes you request.
