His father, by vocation a master-glazier, was organist, church choir leader and musical pedagogue. From 1902 Raucheisen lived in Munich, and from 1920 until the end of his pianistic activity in 1958, in Berlin. In 1933 he married the soprano Maria Ivogün, following her divorce from Erb.
By Franz Schubert - Fritz Kreisler & Michael Raucheisen. Chanson Louis XIII and Pavane (In the Style of Couperin). By Fritz Kreisler - Fritz Kreisler & Michael Raucheisen. Michael Raucheisen was a seemingly ubiquitous presence on the European concert scene in the first half of the twentieth century, not, however, as a soloist or recitalist, but as the foremost German accompanist to singers. He also served as accompanist to instrumentalists, such as composer/violinist Fritz Kreisler. From 1902 the family lived in Munich, where young Michael would study at the Hochschule fur Musik. He was already proficient on the piano, violin, and flute, instruments he was taught to play by his organist father. From about 1906 Raucheisen served as organist at St. Michael's Church in Munich and was concertmaster in the Munich Staatsoper Orchestra.
