Max Raabe & the Palast Orchester


Fox Presents!

The Palast Orchester was founded in 1986 in Berlin by Max Raabe and his fellow music students for the love of playing music from Germany’s Golden 1920s. Their style and showmanship immediately struck a chord with the public and their popularity increased quickly, first in Germany, then Austria, Switzerland and soon they were touring worldwide.

Max Raabe, the wry, nonchalant and charismatic vocalist who founded and headlines the Palast Orchester of Berlin, introduces German popular and cabaret songs from the Weimar era and American songs of the time that gained popularity in Europe.

Their style and show immediately struck a chord with the public so that touring quickly increased - first in Germany, then also to Austria and Switzerland and soon worldwide.

Mr. Raabe is a tenderly expressive singer with a light baritone voice, though, like Fred Astaire, he can croon his way to tenorial highs or dip to playfully earthy basso lows. When backed by the musicians playing the band’s harmonically rich, casually jazzy and inventive arrangements, Raabe performs such breezy romantic song like the 1929 “Wenn du von mir fortgehst” by Hans May and Kurt Schwabach, in a way that is affecting and piercingly true.

An ECHO award for Charming Weill and two internationally successful albums on which they interpreted modern pop songs in the style of the 20s, finally set them off on their international career. In the meantime Max Raabe & Palast Orchester tour regularly to the USA and Canada, where they perform in famous venues like Chicago Symphony Hall, Davies Hall in San Francisco, and New York’s Carnegie Hall.

One thing should be pointed out beforehand: Max Raabe & Palast Orchester are great fun! It is a real pleasure to listen to and watch the ladies and gentlemen. In times of fast moving canned music, Max Raabe & Palast Orchester touch the hearts of all people who are interested in music. Classic songs from the twenties and thirties of the last century as well as own compositions are performed with much attention to detail. No matter whether Max Raabe with the wonderful Anette Humpe works out lyrics and melodies for great songs or performs pop classics with Palast Orchester in their own style, they shine with their class and musical intuition. - black-box-music.de/Max
