LEONARD COHEN AGAIN IN BRATISLAVA

Leonard Cohen

legendary Canadian singer and songwriter,
will perform at Bratislava's Incheba Expo Arena
on Saturday, March 13th, 2010

One of the most fascinating and enigmatic - if not the most successful - singer, songwriters of the late '60s, Leonard Cohen has retained an audience across four decades of music-making interrupted by various digressions into personal and creative exploration, all of which have only added to the mystique surrounding him. Second only to Bob Dylan (and perhaps Paul Simon), he commands the attention of critics and younger musicians more firmly than any other musical figure from the 1960s who is still working at the outset of the 21st century, which is all the more remarkable an achievement for someone who didn't even aspire to a musical career until he was in his thirties.
Leonard Norman Cohen was born into a middle-class Jewish family in the Montreal suburb of Westmount in 1934, a year before Elvis Presley or Ronnie Hawkins, and his background - personal, social, and intellectual - couldn't have been more different from those of any rock stars of any generation; nor can he be easily compared even with any members of the generation of folksingers who came of age in the 1960s. Though he knew some country music and played it a bit as a boy, he didn't start performing on even a semi-regular basis, much less recording, until after he had already written several books - and as an established novelist and poet, his literary accomplishments far exceed those of Bob Dylan or most anyone else who one cares to mention in music, at least this side of operatic librettists such as Hugo Von Hoffmanstahl or Stefan Zweig, figures from another musical and cultural world

That's how I understand life
My pleasure Vart...

The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone...

Have a Nice New Week

Yes, Viera
you are
a friend that I can sit in a cafe or an opera with , never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation I have ever had.

That's how I understand life,

Last performance of Leonard Cohen was in Zurich on October 25th and it took place at the Hallenstadion. There will be seats for about 8500 persons, however
I got a ticket for Leonard Cohen at the last minute. I have long liked Cohen's songs without particularly liking the albums of his that I have heard. But the arrangements with his current band are fabulous, always serving each song so wonderfully, and without any leanings toward the "poppiness" that I found annoying on some of his recordings. And (in Zurich last night at least) the lyrics were mixed just right, so you could hear all the words really well. Cohen articulates quite clearly when he sings, and the mix and his clear articulation made the poetry of his work come through all the more powerfully. And finally, there were the songs I knew well already,especially "Suzanne," which has long been one of my favorite songs to play on the guitar and sing .

What can I say? I've seen a lot of great concerts, and this was one of them.
Big hugs
Regina
