Leonard Cohen – Our Man In Budapest
Heck Of A Guy correspondent, MKati, has forwarded links to local reviews of the Leonard Cohen Budapest Concert which took place last night (31 August 2009).
Despite the prodigious language barrier, the thought and feeling of these reviews, which more resemble philosophical essays than the quick, oversimplified reviews predominant today, are easy enough to decipher, as is the case for these brief excerpts:
A three-hour concert in the Papp László Sport Arena, the Canadian singer, full house, full of the best pieces of the life-work, standing at the end of the audience clapping. Leonard Cohen 75 years old, live in thriving, full of energy.
When the end felzúg the applause, his hat off, there is white hair. He smiles, perhaps the first time during the concert. Visibly happy. He says he was a wonderful evening, thank you.
I’m Your Man, I’m Your Man, Yes, You Are. By the way, I must note at this point: an elder lady behind me I’m Your Man I’m Your Man series, after all it sikkantotta, Yes, You Are.
Well, Uncle Lenny, away message: the honor is ours.
