Black or White

You Decide Who Wins.

The brainchild of internationally acclaimed pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis, the "piano battle" puts the duo head-to-head onstage, 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.

Andreas Kern

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.

He was also the architect of the Piano City Berlin Festival 2010, which featured more than 100 piano performances held in Berlin on one weekend. 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, Vadim Repin, and other celebrated musicians.

Paul Cibis

Educated in Hanover, Berlin, and London, Paul Cibis has performed on five continents and established an international presence. Paul has released several albums, including a collection of French mélodies and piano works by Berlioz, Fauré, and Debussy, in collaboration with German mezzo-soprano Barbara Senator. A committed pedagogue, Paul has taught at Trinity College of Music in London and frequently gives master classes in Germany, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea.

Every competition needs a judge, 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.
