Join Max Raabe, accompanied on piano by Christoph Israel, as he explores the music of the Weimar Republic at a special concert in St Margaret's Church, just next to Westminster Abbey.
Max will sing songs that hint at the dark and turbulent time in which they were created. Some became “Gassenhauer” - literally “alley hits” - picked up instantly and sung in the streets, whilst others were written for international movies, like Marlene Dietrich´s famous version of “Falling in Love Again”.
Most of the evening´s songs will be performed in German, although some will be in English.
Max Raabe is best known for his unique interpretation of songs from the 20s and 30s. Together with his Palast Orchester he has built up a following not only in Europe but also in Japan, China and the USA.
All the proceeds from this evening's concert will go towards a new stained glass window at St Margaret's Church.
