PIANO BATTLE: Germany’s Piano Virtuosi Andreas Kern vs Paul Cibis
Combat on the Keys: Classical Smackdown
- Tuesday, February 17, 2015 @ 8:00 PM
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.
“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.” Map Magazine
