Now in English. In 1986 Max Raabe and friends founded the Palast Orchester, which performs chansons and songs in the style of the 1920s and 1930s. In 1992, he attracted attention with a solo performance of Unter den Pinien von Argentinien before a closed curtain in Peter Zadek‘s production of Der blaue Engel at the Theater des Westens. He became known to a larger audience in 1994 when he appeared in the film comedy Der bewegte Mann together with the Palast Orchester. Two years later followed his first engagement as a film actor in the role of Attila in the television film Charley‘s Tante. From time to time Max Raabe can also be heard as a soloist. He is accompanied by pianist Christoph Israel and also performs his own compositions. Whether with his own Palast-Revue in Berlin‘s Wintergarten, performances in New York‘s Carnegie Hall, at the Vienna Opera Ball or concert tours to China, Japan, Canada and Israel; to this day, Max Raabe and the Palast Orchestra own the great stages of this world. In addition, the albums of the formation are repeatedly bestsellers and represented in the charts. Most recently, Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester caused a sensation with a spectacular MTV Unplugged. This album presents (mainly) the classics of American composers and authors in English. It also includes the English-language version of Raabe‘s evergreen „Kein Schwein ruft mich an“ [Why Does No One Call].
