"Berlin feiert Cohen"!

Zum 80. Geburtstag des großen Poeten und Musikers Leonard Cohen feiert Berlin am 21.09.2014 um 20 Uhr ein Geburtstagskonzert in der Kreuzberger Passionskirche.

Auf Einladung von Misha Schoeneberg, der in den vergangenen Jahren 27 Songs von Cohen so wunderbar ins Deutsche übertragen hatte, dass ihm Cohen selbst ein "Thank you" zollte, werden Künstler des Tribute-Albums "POEM - Leonard Cohen in deutscher Sprache"(Sony Music) einige der bekanntesten und wichtigsten Lieder des kanadischen Musikers und Poeten in der Passionskirche interpretieren. Mit weiteren Überraschungsgästen darf gerechnet werden.

Hello dear friends of the art of Mr. Cohen,

I am one of the organizers of the Berlin Concert "Berlin feiert Cohen", which takes place excactly on the 21th of September in Berlins Passionskirche. On board is Misha Schoeneberg who created many Cohen translations to German, which were confirmed by Cohen himself. Actually he let him re-translate the Translations to English! 17 Songs can be heard on a new Album "POEM - Leonard Cohen in deutscher Sprache"(Sony Music). A few more will be featured in our concert.
The Line-Up: Andreas Albrecht, Veronika Fischer, Nina Hagen, Joa Kuehn, Anna Loos, Manfred Maurenbrecher, Johannes Oerding, Mokkapan Pongphit, Max Prosa, Jan Preuß & die Geheime Gesellschaft, Réka, ScherbeKontraBass und Suzanna & Karsten Troyke.

We hope for a magic night.

If you want to celebrate with us, here you can book the tickets:

Maybe interesting for the few forum members who were not present: Towards the end one of the organizers showed up with a handheld camera and told us there was a live link to LC: No, we couldn't see him, but he was able to see and hear us. So we sang Happy Birthday. Apparently, the organizers were not sure whether the live link actually worked. But, well, I want to believe ...
