- Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester: Tonight or Never
- Program Description
The music of Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester speaks for itself. For the most part, the songs were written during the en dof the Weimar Republic, and during this experimental and contradictory time composers such as Friedrich Hollaender, Kurt Weill, Walter Jurmann and many others penned their melodies. The feeling of the times is concentrated within just the few measures of their songs and hits. Some of their compositions were created overnight and then whistled the following day in all fo Berlin. Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester reveal the dazzling ambiguity of these songs as well as their musical strength adn complexity. These are not just remakes, but rather new interpretations which bring to light the timeless modernity of these brilliant works of the past.
