Video: Leonard Cohen’s Inspired Performance Of Take This Waltz – Zagreb 2010

Now in Vienna there are ten pretty women
There’s a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There’s a lobby with nine hundred windows
There’s a tree where the doves go to die
There’s a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost


The acute camera angle and the forest of folks betwixt videographer and subject preclude this being a pristine recording, but Albert Noonan’s skills have produced a quality video nonetheless. And, the performance itself, including the band introductions, is especially heartfelt.
