Berlin Meets West 57th

Recommended fare from Carnegie Hall’s celebration of Europe’s white-hot cultural capital.

  1. 1. Max Raabe & Palast Orchester

    November 2

    The dapper vocalist and his classic band bring a dose of Weimar glamour with a set of songs from Germany’s golden age of songwriting.

  2. 2. “Berlin: Symphony of a City”

    November 3

    Eighty years ago, the premiere of Walter Ruttmann’s silent film was accompanied by a 75-member orchestra; that music lives again at a modern screening, with live piano and percussion.

  3. 3. Nomad Soundsystem

    November 5

    The diversity of Berlin today is more than apparent in this innovative group’s stylings, which mix electric, North African, and world-music sounds.
