Leonard Cohen torna a Catalunya


El trobador canadenc Leonard Cohen ha anunciat dos concerts a Catalunya per als propers mesos. El 15 d'agost als Jardins de Cap Roig, a l'Empordà, i el 21 de setembre al Palau Sant Jordi de Barcelona.
Aquesta gravació feta a Austràlia ens mostra el bon nivell d'alguns músics catalans. El barceloní Javier Mas, que havia acompanyat Maria del Mar Bonet, ara fa els solos de llaüt i acompanya Cohen en la seva gira mundial. Entre els dos artistes hi ha molt bona química, com es pot comprovar en les imatges.
A continuació, la lletra de la cançó que interpreten:

WHO BY FIRE
(NEW SKIN FOR THE OLD CEREMONY)

And who by fire, who by water,
who in the sunshine, who in the night time,
who by high ordeal, who by common trial,
who in your merry merry month of may,
who by very slow decay,
and who shall I say is calling?
And who in her lonely slip, who by barbiturate,
who in these realms of love, who by something blunt,
and who by avalanche, who by powder,
who for his greed, who for his hunger,
and who shall I say is calling?

And who by brave assent, who by accident,
who in solitude, who in this mirror,
who by his lady's command, who by his own hand,
who in mortal chains, who in power,
and who shall I say is calling?

Leonard Cohen
