It’s 1740, and coffee houses are the places to listen to music and share stories, in both the famous trading center of Leipzig and one of the oldest cities in the world, Damascus. The latest Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra multi-media musical offering Tales of Two Cities: The Leipzig-Damascus Coffee House illuminates each city’s striking features in common: both enjoyed a lively tradition of coffee houses in which the finest musicians of the city performed and both were also famous centers of scholarship and learning. Anyone who has attended one of Tafelmusik’s three previous multi-media concert projects at the Lobero in the past decade (The Galileo Project, House of Dreams or J.S Bach: The Circle of Creation) can attest to the incredible originality and conception of their insightful musical stage creations that combine live music, text and stunning projections transporting the audience back in time and place. Not to be missed!

TALES OF TWO CITIES:

THE LEIPZIG-DAMASCUS COFFEE HOUSE

Notes on the Program by Alison Mackay

For centuries, both coffee and music

have been celebrated for their stimulating

properties and their restorative

powers. The development of the coffee

house in the cities of the Middle East and

Europe offered citizens the opportunity

to experience fine music making and coffee

drinking at the same time. This was

particularly true in the German city of

Leipzig and the Syrian capital of Damascus

in the eighteenth century.

Though separated by 3,000 kilometres,

the two cities had a number of fascinating

characteristics in common. Both

lay at the crossroads of ancient trade

routes and became important centres for

international trade fairs.

Leipzig lay at the intersection of the

Via Regia (the east-west route from Santiago

de Compostela to Kiev and Moscow)

mann in Leipzig. We can imagine that

Händel might well have been invited to

take part in the weekly Collegium concert,

and the works which were later

published as a collection of trio sonatas,

Opus 2, are typical of the repertoire

which would have been performed on

such an occasion.

After Telemann moved away from

Leipzig, his ensemble became associated

with a coffee house in the centre of

town run by the confectioner Gottfried

Zimmermann, who purchased a number

of instruments for the use of the students.

In 1729 this ensemble was taken

over by the cantor of St. Thomas’s Choir

School, Johann Sebastian Bach, who

directed weekly concerts for the coffee

house patrons, supplementing the ensemble

of student performers with members

of his family, visiting virtuosi, and

Stadtpfeiffers — elite performers from

the town band. Under Bach’s leadership

the Zimmermann Collegium Musicum

became the most highly respected ensemble

of its kind in Germany.

At this time, the city of Leipzig was

already established as a centre for the

study of Arabic language and literature.

The holdings of the town library included

264 Islamic manuscripts written in Persian,

Arabic, and Turkish, which had been

acquired in 1686 when Saxon troops

plundered the newly conquered Hungarian

city of Buda, which had been part of

the Islamic Ottoman empire since 1541.

In May of 1723, the month that

Bach moved to Leipzig, a young scholar

named Georg Jacob Kehr began to catalogue

these manuscripts. He had learned

Arabic at an amazing institution in Halle,

founded in about 1700 as a social experiment:

it was an educational village of

fifty buildings “for the use of the entire

world.” There was a residence for about

100 orphans, a school for 2,200 girls and

boys of all classes, a teachers’ college, a

hospital and pharmacy, a cabinet of curiosities,

and a “Collegium orientale” — a

college offering instruction in Arabic,

Ancient Greek, and Hebrew. A famous

scholar from Damascus named Sulayman

al-Aswad al-Dimashqi, who was involved

in the first translation of the New

Testament into Arabic and of the Koran

into English, taught for a time in this

institution, a number of whose graduates

became teachers of Arabic in Leipzig in

the time of Bach.

A century later, a student in Arabic

studies from Leipzig University became

the Prussian Consul in Damascus, living

there for fourteen years. During this period

he acquired for the library of his alma

mater a unique and precious collection

of 488 manuscripts, most of which were

copied in the seventeenth and eighteenth

centuries in Damascus. The socalled

“Refaiya” collection, named after

the family who had the library in their

home, contains books of poetry, biographies,

letters, travelogues, and scientific

treatises, and gives us a valuable

glimpse of intellectual life in Damascus

in the period explored in our concert.

This collection includes a set of

small books that had belonged to a professional

coffeehouse storyteller named

Ahmad ar-Rabbat. These slim volumes

contain stories of the type told in Damascus

coffee houses — epic sagas and

tales from the Arabian Nights which lend

themselves to exciting narration in instalments.

The Scottish physician Patrick

Russell, who practised for twenty-one

years in Syria in the mid-eighteenth century,

has left an arresting description of

the coffee house storyteller’s art:

He recites walking to and fro in the

middle of the coffee room, stopping only

now and then when the expression requires

some emphatical attitude. When

the expectation of the audience is raised

to the highest pitch, he breaks off abruptly,

and makes his escape from the room.

Our performance includes a story

about a destitute migrant who forges a

letter of recommendation to a government

official. This tale as told by Scheherezade

appears in some manuscript

collections of Arabian Nights stories, but

it originates as a moral tale in a work

now known as the Mirror for Princes by

the medieval Islamic philosopher Al-

Ghazali. The Mirror for Princes was part

of the Damascus storyteller Al-Rabbat’s

collection; in another manuscript source

he explains how to dress the coffee

house to set the stage for the storyteller

and accompanying musicians.

We are delighted to welcome Trio

Arabica, which performs songs and instrumental

works from the complex tonal

and rhythmic structures of classical

Arabic music, and from the styles of

traditional music known in Syria which

were influenced by Iraqi and Turkish traditions

in the cosmopolitan mélange that

was a feature of the Ottoman empire.

TRANSLATIONS OF ARABIC SONGS

Badat Min al Khidri

She appeared from the tent in a temple of light

She shines over the moon and puts the moons to shame

From her saliva comes drunkenness and her mouth causes intoxication.

Come back O cup bearer, let us pass the cups

O fill up, O my friend, how beautiful it is to drink with nice companions

She was plentiful but not avaricious to give from the world of lights.

Yamul ‘Uyoun Issoud

I am mesmerized with your black eyes —

Your golden complexion bewitched our hearts.

She came out with her pretty rose dress

and the sun hid when she came out.

Her figure sways like a branch in the breeze —

She walks slowly as if she’s flying slightly above the ground.

She stands at the door crying out “Oh mercy” —

I am not crazy and my mind is sound.

From behind the oven she gives me a loaf of bread

The loaf from the pretty one would last for a year.

Who needs food if he is close to her?

Ya Malikan

You who own my heart, you who have stolen my sleep,

Until when will you deny my love? Enough of this persistence!

I adore you — why do you torture me?

You are the one I seek and want,

Reward me with your closeness and love.

Until when will you keep your distance?

Afdihi in Hafidhal Hawa Ow Diya’a

My life is yours whether your love is there or I have lost it.

You own my heart — what else can I do?

He who did not taste his lover’s cruelty as sweetness

Lived in ignorance of true love and pretended.

You with the pretty face have withered the beautiful patience.

Is there mercy in your heart for someone who adores you

And whose heart is aching?

Is there a way to show you my love

Or to tell you of my agony, or plead?

I feel too shy to plead with you as you got me used to doing.

I do it only because I want your approval.

Tala’a Min Beyt Abouha

Going from her father’s house to the neighbour’s house

She passed me without greeting me. Maybe the pretty one was upset.

I said, “Sweet one, quench my thirst, give me a drink of water.”

She said, “Go away, poor soul — our water will not quench your thirst.”

I told her, “Sweet one, quench my thirst, show me your figure.”

She said, “Go away, poor soul, my figure is like a stem of basil.”

I told her, “Sweet one, quench my thirst — show me your eyes.”

She said, “Go away, poor soul, my eyes are those of a gazelle.”

I told her, “Sweet one, quench my thirst — show me your cheeks.”

She said, “Go away poor soul, my cheeks are like that of a pomegranate.”
