BLACK AND WHITE ARE READY TO FIGHT
Whether or not they are friends in real life, mercy is the last thing on their mind when fighting on stage. Winning the audience‘s heart is the only thing that counts!
The brainchild of internationally acclaimed 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 show is divided into several rounds, each featuring a certain musical style. The two artists, with distinctly different performance techniques, will even go so far as to improvise on the tunes you request.
YOU ARE THE JUDGE
A competition wouldn’t be a competition without a jury and here, YOU will be the judge! All members of the audience are invited to vote on the pianists‘ performances and will eventually crown the winner. Of course, this might not be the limit of your
Part serious classical recital, part tongue-in-cheek performance by two classy pianists, the PIANO BATTLE is a unique concert that pleases both the ear and the eye.
Originally created for the Hong Kong City Festival, PIANO BATTLE has been performed for sold-out audiences in Europe, the United States and Asia, including the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center, Seoul Arts Center and an open air spectacle before 6,000 fans in Taiwan. The show has also been well received in the pianists‘ home country where Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis have performed for enthusiastic audiences in concert halls and at festivals all over Germany - including the
Beethovenfest Bonn, the Rheingau Musik Festival, the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, the Prinzregententheater Munich and the Philharmonie Berlin.
“The piano battle between the young men facingeach other at the two Yamaha grand pianos is apublicly staged and artfully performed contemplation of the classical concert business aswell as classical music itself. Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis purposefully present their expertlyexecuted craft in the wrong - an athletic – contextand let the unique qualities of the performanceshine even brighter this way. Between the comedicremarks and over the course of a lovely SchubertImpromptu and a biting Ligeti piece, they compelthe audience to engage in the focused mindfulnessthat is necessary to truly appreciate music.“
“...Andreas Kern und Paul Cibis are internationallyacclaimed pianists. They could have simplyenjoyed a career that followed the usual concertcircuit but that‘s not what they had in mind. In thePiano Battle, they challenge each other in anenergetic quest for superior quality and acclaim…“
“... the two protagonists instantly struck a chord with the audience in the sold-out Sophiensaele. The atmoshpere could not have been better as all members of the audience were actively involved. Guarantee for a great vibe.“
“The comedy-classical combat show of the affable German pair Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis returns after a successful debut It’s serious Classical music in a whole new context - and you decide the winner.”
“The intensity and music heats up with every round.”
"PIANO BATTLE has the elegance of classic music, the excitement of rock and the energy of hip-hop.”
, South Korea
“As the competition got white-hot, the performers and the audience found themselves unable to sit back down ... as the crowd looked on, nervous and excited, immersed in the beauty and tension of the music ... And when the smoke clears, the only thing that’s been defeated is the barrier between classical music and the audience.”
“Tongue-in-cheek showdown over five rounds, great show!”

Born in South Africa, Andreas Kern studied piano in Cologne and Berlin with Günter Ludwig and Pascal Devoyon. As a soloist and chamber musician, he has extensive experience in Europe, Canada, Hong Kong, China, Japan, India and South Africa. Keen to present classical music in unconventional ways, Andreas has developed concert projects and formats that often feature unorthodox venues, or whereby musicians collaborate with artists in other fields, such as theatre and dance. Such performances have successfully drawn a much wider and younger audience than traditional classical concerts. Andreas Kern has also created the critically acclaimed “arte lounge” for the French-German TV channel Arte. As the show‘s co-host, he has performed with musicians including Mischa Maisky, Renaud Capucon, Sol Gabetta, Sarah Chang, Vadim Repin, Nils M?nkemeyer, Elina Garanca, and J?rg Widmann. He was also the architect of the Piano City Berlin Festival 2010, which featured more than 100 piano performances held in Berlin within one weekend. Since then, Piano City has branched out to other cities such as Milan, Naples and Rome.
