After sold out concerts at City Recital Hall in 2017 & 2018, Triple ARIA-winning ensemble Monsieur Camembert (plus very special guests) return in 2019 to celebrate Leonard Cohen's 85th birthday! Drawing on Leonard Cohen material that spans some 35 years, Monsieur Camembert's critically acclaimed show traverses styles rarely if ever associated with Cohen, including Swing, jazz, tango, Latin, klezmer etc. Linking the songs with Cohen's remarkable poetry and prose, the show also features audio fragments of Cohen himself...
For 13 years, Monsieur Camembert has been touring this ARIA-nominated show, playing capacity concert halls nationally and internationally, including headlining the prestigious International Leonard Cohen Festival in Canada.
Monsieur Camembert simultaneously generates fresh perspectives on Cohen’s astonishing work and exposes deeper truths… a must for Cohen and Camembert fans alike.
Sydney Morning Herald
If you like Leonard Cohen, you ought hear Monsieur Camembert’s Famous Blue Cheese. You more especially ought hear it if you dislike Leonard Cohen: here's your cure for received notions/ nonsense about Cohen as a byword for gloom! Spirited, musically assured, eclectic and downright fun. They never imitate Cohen, but do right by him, with glee...and sensitivity.
