German duo perform “Piano Battle” in Hanoi

The internationally acclaimed pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis from Germany enchanted music lovers with a variety of classical pieces in a concert show titled “Piano Battle” in Hanoi on December 2 as part of the European Music Festival 2017 in Vietnam.

The show was divided into several rounds, each featuring a certain musical style. The two artists, with distinctly different performance techniques, improvised on tunes that the audience requested.

All members of the audience were invited to vote on the pianists’ performances and crown the winner.

Originally created for the Hong Kong City Festival, “Piano Battle” has been performed for sold-out audiences in Europe, the US and Asia.

The European Music Festival 2017 is an annual cultural event organised by the Delegation of the European Union (EU) to Vietnam, the Embassies of EU Member States and the European Cultural Institutes. Bringing together musical talents from all around Europe, the festival aims to celebrate the richness and diversity of European culture.
