Paul Whiteman’s greatest hits with Simon Rattle and Max Raabe

To this day Paul Whiteman is regarded as the “King of Jazz”. With his fabulous orchestra and ingenious arrangements, he ensured that jazz became respectable and found its way into high culture from the 1920s onwards. Simon Rattle has long had a weakness for Whiteman’s unmistakable sound and brings it to life again in this Late Night concert: a wonderful journey into the world of symphonic jazz. Star guest of the evening is the singer Max Raabe, acclaimed internationally for his performances of songs from the 1920s and 30s.
