Berlin’s Max Raabe is at once timely and timeless, rich with the kind of devastating charm on which today’s glib digital world thrives. Perfectly coiffed for a night at the theater, Raabe and his impeccable twelve-piece Palast Orchester employ the cabaret and swing of prewar Germany not so much as a throwback as a transport to the good life. They’re a sharp, elegant testament to classics never going out of style.
“It’s the sound of romance… a musical interlude from a 1930-vintage movie … Horns sing with reeds and strings, seeming to set the very air dancing to the rhythms of waltzes [and] fox trots.”Los Angeles Times
