Canton DM 9 Flat Wall Mounted TV Soundbar - Black by Canton
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
I was initially attracted to the Canton DM 50 Soundbase, but having read on several user reports of unreliability, I decided to opt for the DM 9 Soundbar.

Early thoughts are that the resolution, and sensitivity to touch, of the LCD… Read more
Heute Nacht Oder Nie: Live in Berlin (2DVDs+1CD) [&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Max Raabe
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.
