A Conversation with Leonard Cohen and Philip Glass yesterday at Toronto's Winter Garden Theatre as part of LuminaTO. The talk was about Cohen's Book of Longing and Glass' musical interpretation of it.
Leonard Cohen jokingly described the collaboration: "It shouldn't have worked, but it did. Like that iceberg crashing into that museum,..., a beautiful catastrophe!" comparing the piece to Daniel Libeskind's new architectural addition to Royal Ontario Museum.
