Piano Battle: Andreas Kern vs. Paul Cibis

The black and the white are ready to fight. Two piano champions are on stage, one in black, the other in white. They perform, compete, and interact with the audience.

The "Piano Battle" concert show by Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis is a new concert format which presents classical music in a novel way. The two accomplished pianists compete against one another other with distinctly different performance styles, playing pieces by composers such as Chopin, Liszt and Debussy and improvised works based on audience requests. Both serious and humorous, the show consists of recital and interactive elements, and the audience plays an active part throughout the entire program. In the end, the audience is invited to vote on the pianists’ performances and choose the winner.

Event begins at 7:30PM
