Philip Glass on Working With Leonard Cohen - video

Post by sturgess66 » Sat Feb 27, 2010 5:41 am

I found this at MarieM's blog "Today's Cohen" - thank you Marie!

A short but delightful video of Philip Glass speaking on working with Leonard Cohen.

Philip Glass and Scott Hicks in Conversation - Adelaide Bank Festival of Arts - on Australian Broadcasting Corporation - March 12, 2008.

He describes Leonard as a "wonderful collaborator" and "a man of excessive modesty." :D

This was utterly delightful! I got the feeling from the interview that they are two kindred spirits. Thank you Marie and Linda.

Yes, thank you both, Linda and Marie. What a lovely piece of an interview: I wish it had been longer.... as Mary said, delightful.

Thank you so much Linda and Marie. This is great. I had a good laugh. It is always interesting for me to read or listen stories about Leonard. I can hear his voice behind Philip Glass's story, and it sounds so true; it's like Leonard couldn't have said things any other way that the way he does.
