Piano Battle started more or less by accident – with only one concert slot left at the Hong Kong City Festival, the organisers suggested the pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis share the stage. What emerged from their festival scrambling was a performance battle, and one that would go beyond a single night and expand to a global tour with a rapturous following. Since then the duo has played to sold-out audiences in Asia, Europe and the USA, and this Sunday, the contest lands at Perth Concert Hall.
