Max Raabe & the palace orchestra
For five years now, Max Raabe and Annette Humpe are working together, writing and composing songs. After their platinum-certified album „Küssen kann man nicht alleine“ (you can´t kiss alone), the duo is now working on their next brilliant album „Für Frauen ist das kein Problem“ (that is no problem for women).
Max Raabe´s songs are full of insights about love and the interaction between men and women. His way to perform is very charming and humorous – before striking up a song, he always names the composer and the year of release.
Max Raabe returned to his home town Berlin in November for several shows at Admiralspalast. He brings the songs of the 1920s and 30s back to life and carries on this kind of musical art. His shows are a real musical experience, again and again, for about 25 years now.
