For the first time in Boston since 2012, Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester bring the glamour and sophistication of Weimar-era Berlin to Symphony Hall with a cool, contemporary twist. Swing and cabaret big band classics from Germany’s Roaring Twenties meet Broadway and Tin Pan Alley standards by Cole Porter and Irving Berlin in this irresistible concert.
Raabe, with his smooth high baritone and unshakeable poise, leads his endlessly versatile band through arrangements praised as “always extremely cunning and never less than very stylish” by Britain’s ArtsDesk. Get away to a lost era of music, wit, and style with Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester!
“Escapism sometimes feels not just useful but necessary. To be carried back, for an evening, to the world of the 1920s/1930s dance band, with foxtrots, pasodobles, crisp starched collars and secco endings, of slick hair and even slicker arrangements, does have a lot to recommend it. And a virtually packed house in Cadogan Hall last night were palpably more than happy to be taken there. We were in assured hands.”The ArtsDesk
