4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasing time capsule 13 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
You will never hear a reproduction 1930s band as good as this one. Arrangements are transposed from 78rpm records of the day and endless care has been taken to then get the sound right. And it is perfect in every detail.
And here's the bonus - whilst many bands of the 1930s were careless about their vocalists, often letting down otherwise brilliant recordings, Max Raabe actually manages to capture the sound and improve on it. He is fortunate to be able to go from resonant baritone to delicate falsetto as the occasion demands, and can do everything from brash cabaret to saccharine-sweet.

In short, if you have any interest in 1930s bands and artists, you should buy this to listen to something that's been done after many years of careful reflection, yet without corrupting the style in any way.

Only criticism: Apart from a few songs, it's German language only, with no subtitles whatsoever. But who cares what the words are when it's all performed so perfectly? Bonus: It's a DVD; making of DVD; and and audio CD. And the technical sound quality of the audio CD is one of the best I've ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars The good old days 1 May 2011
Format:DVD
I have been a fan of Max Raabe for some years.The attention to detail and the musicianship
keep the music from becoming banal.The walk down memory lane to the original versions by what I would guess were most often bands inferior to Palast Orchestra is one that I am not old enough to take,but I am sure that this outfit would have been a smash in the 20's and 30,s

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite 1 Oct 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester bring the roaring 20's back to life. This includes the live concert dvd and cd (for popping onto your iPod) and a second dvd which has a small documentary about the bands travels around the world.
The performance is to die for and everything these people do exudes class.
An absolute must-have for anyone who loves this era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sophisticated, Musical Performances. 21 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Purely by chance I came across Max Raabe, and Das Palastorchester, performing 'Singing In The Rain', and was immediately 'hooked'.

So, to 'Heute Nacht Oder Nie'.

One might ask how can one enjoy a programme composed primarily of songs in a language one neither speaks, nor understands.
The answer is that one is captured, and delighted, by a singer with an excellent high baritone/falsetto voice accompanied by an orchestra that is comprised of extremely talented, multi instrumental, musicians.
Added to which are arrangements that are sensitive to the original compositions, and performances that evoke the era of the 1920s, and early 1930s.

Max Raabe strikes an elegant figure in his white tie and tails, and in introducing songs displays on occasions a cheeky sense of humour either verbally, or with a facial expression.

The musicians display an open delight in playing the music which again adds to the enjoyment of the audience, and the viewer.

The quality of the video, and audio, is excellent.

In fact the Cinematographer was Michael Ballhaus who has been nominated for an Oscar three times.

This DVD set, notwithstanding the absence of subtitles, is highly recommended.
