Max Raabe & Palast Orchester: The Golden Age

  • March 2, 2014 at 4:00 pm

Concert Hall

When this debonair baritone from Germany strides onstage — perfectly poised and impeccably dressed in white tie and tails —to join his Weimar-era, big band orchestra, you'll suddenly be transported to an elegant Berlin nightclub back in the 1920s. In this new production, The Golden Age, Max Raabe & Palast Orchester present virtuosic recreations of the classic dance hall songs, swing and cabaret hits of the 20’s and 30’s. Legendary in his own country, this retro crooner with his smooth, silky sound and his superb orchestra are classically trained artists, and they take their music very seriously — but not themselves. There's a hint of tongue-in-cheek, especially in Raabe's dry and pithy introductions. "Their performances conjure the same warm immediacy as a vintage recording," says Vogue, who featured these fashionable artists prior to their Carnegie Hall appearance. It's a delightful entertainment experience quite unlike anything you've seen before.
