Piano Battle Live (Endorsed By Talent, Not Neo-Nazis)

A battle of colossi.

They’ll finger their way to your depths whilst looking intensely, provocatively into each others eyes.

No, this isn’t a political debate.

These guys aren’t just going to screw you, take the money and speed away on a golf cart (we could’ve said ‘run’, but let’s be realistic).

This is a romance.

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.

In this era it takes true talent to entice with classical music as opposed to racially offensive epithets and the promise of nuclear war.

What a lovely effing time to be alive.
