Max Raabe & Palast Orchester
March 1, 2012
Strathmore Hall, Music Center at Strathmore, Washington, DC
The inimitable Max Raabe & Palast Orchester embody the music, style and decadence of Weimar-era Berlin. Slick and nostalgic, yet unmistakably modern, Raabe and his talented 12-piece band channel with uncanny precision the high style and musical glory of the 1920s and 1930s. A singer of incredible range, Raabe captures the cunning rasp of the cabaret singer, the confidence of the bel canto hero, the carefree timbre of early jazz and the falsetto of ragtime. His talents and humor have charmed audiences around the world.
The show is co-presented with The Music Center at Strathmore
