Leonard Cohen stained with the bitterness of his poetic prayers
The Canadian singer dazzled in his first recitals in Spain
As a contemporary Lord Byron, with all the beauty and the loser with a burning violin, Leonard Cohen yesterday led thousands of León to the beauty of some songs which could directly recover, thanks to sin, after years of silence. With his hat as master of ceremonies, the Canadian poet showed throughout the concert, thanks to the great and deployment issues such as the magic of Dance me to the end of love (the waltz with the opening scene), The Future, Ain - ™ t no cure for love or Everybody knows.

Was almost ecuador when Leonard Cohen's concert showed why poetry | a verse recitation was suspended in the air, as deep as a thousand kisses-|
And suddenly, his tribute to Lorca, who was revealed to be profound and popular at the time, who guided him along the road that leads to poetry. Take this waltz was one of the most memorable moments of the show and prior to the end a new beginning, to Marianne, First We Take Manhattan, a Closing time. Yesterday, Leonard Cohen has allowed us to cross to the other side, those dreams were never fulfilled, that of the vanquished that, despite everything, still waiting, the lust for drugs and who share dreams with the hope of salvation of finding a truth that never-| Like a fisherman king, as the Jew who sang Lorca, halfway between the East River and the Bronx, as Ruth-| I beg you to stop. Where you go, I will go ...
