Piano Battle Live in Brisbane

Piano Battle Live in Brisbane

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 debut version of the Piano Battle is a concert show that shines the spotlight on two rival pianists who compete to win the audience over with their distinctly different styles, techniques and artistic personalities.

The repertoire ranges from Schubert and Chopin to Scriabin and Ligeti. The two artists will even go so far as to spontaneously improvise tunes requested by the audience. At the end of each round, all members of the audience are invited to vote on the duo’s performances – and will eventually crown the winner. Yet your involvement in the show as a member of the audience may not stop here, as you shall see. Highly entertaining, and pleasing to the ear, the eye and the mind. That’s the first edition of Piano Battle – Andreas vs. Paul.

Piano Virtuosi – Combat on the Keys: Classical Smackdown
[Who is the better pianist? Two Pianists, Six Rounds, Chopin vs. Liszt, Debussy vs. Schubert. That’s a challenge for you to tackle, with your ears, eyes and heart.]

“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

“The intensity and music heats up with every round.” – HK Magazine

“Tongue-in-check showdown over five rounds, great show!” – Sunday Morning Post
