Max Raabe & Palast Orchester A World of Music Series
About this Performance
Slick and nostalgic, yet unmistakably modern, Germany's Max Raabe & Palast Orchester debut at Longwood Gardens. The ever-elegant, debonair Raabe and his 12-piece orchestra embody the halcyon days of 1920s and 30s Weimar Berlin in all its high style and musical glory.

More about Max Raabe & Palast Orchester
It's all there—dance hall songs, couplets, Cuban rumbas, happy foxtrots, and stylish tangos, as Raabe in his perfect tux captures the essence of the cabaret singer, the bel canto hero, the falsetto of ragtime, and the timbre of early pre-war jazz. The Broadway musical Cabaret was just an invention—this show is history!
This exciting group has covered everything from modern tunes to traditional German hits and especially pop hits of the ‘20s and ‘30s.
Max Raabe, born in Lünen, Westfalia, on 12.12.1962, founded the Palast Orchester with fellow students in 1986. Since his graduation as certified baritone he and his ensemble have been enjoying international success on concert tours through Europe, USA, Asia, and Israel. His latest CD "Für Frauen ist das kein Problem" is his second cooperation with the pop-producer Annette Humpe. Their first, "Küssen kann man nicht alleine," was awarded platinum in 2012.
