Carnival in Rome gives the chance for a trip back…
There are few singers as talented and enigmatic as Leonard Cohen and whose work keeps eliciting so much interest after a career that spans more tha 40 years.
Mr Cohen was already an accomplished poet when his first record, The Songs of Leonard Cohen, saw the light in 1967 and indeed his attitudes towards art and fame are more those of a writer or a mystic poet that those of a rockstar. A New Yorker’s recent review of one of his performances portrayed him as an elder sage, not singing but uttering words with a voice that told itself stories through timbre and emphasys only.
mr Cohen will be performing at the Centrale Live Foro Italico July 7, 2013 at 21:00 PM. To get there from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes, take the Bus 910 from the station Termini and get off at the stop ” LGT THAON DI REVEL/FORO ITALICO”; then follow this map.
