A TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN
Leonard Cohen is one of the most recognized and famous Jewish artists in recent time, and we are now celebrating his life and achievements with an extraordinary concert in Copenhagen. For the first time ever, some of Denmark’s best artist will perform his songs in the Great Synagogue.
Since the beginning of Cohen’s musical career until his passing three years ago, the world keeps singing, loving and interpreting his songs such as “Hallelujah”, “Dance Me to the End of Love” and “I´m Your Man”.
In celebration of the Jewish New Year – Rosh Hashana - Jewish Culture in Copenhagen and The Jewish Society of Denmark are inviting some of the best Danish singers and musicians to give a unique concert in tribute of Leonard Cohen on Tuesday, October 29th at 19.00.
Throughout his life, Leonard Cohen inspired and provoked his live audience, his listeners and his readers felt deeply touched and moved by his cords and words. He left wonderful songbooks behind full of boldness and true spirituality, communicated by an avid troubadour who loved to explore feelings of love and desire.
Leonard Cohen’s legacy is his values, his vulnerability and his immediate desire for a humane world, peace, decency, harmony and understanding between people.
This New Year’s concert will give all Cohen lovers the opportunity to hear his voice, through these outstanding Danish singers:
Steen Jørgensen (Sort Sol), Claus Hempler, Mike Andersen, Bjørn Fjæstad (Baal), Signe Svendsen og Sara Indrio.
