Tafelmusik’s stunning multimedia concert Tales of Two Cities: The Leipzig-Damascus Coffee House is now available as an audio soundtrack and video that was filmed before a live audience at the Aga Khan Museum’s auditorium in Toronto. Inspired by the colourful, opulent world of 18th-century Saxon and Syrian coffee houses, Tales of Two Cities is performed entirely from memory by Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, ensemble Trio Arabica — Maryem Tollar, voice and qanun; Demetri Petsalakis, oud; and Naghmeh Farahmand, percussion — with narrator Alon Nashman. Described as an “enterprising concept … [that] blends elements that are entertaining, educational, musically rewarding and visually arresting” (Huffington Post Canada), Tales of Two Cities received rapturous critical acclaim at its May 2016 Toronto premiere and was named Best Concert of 2016 by the Spanish classical music magazine Codalario.com. Film extras include subtitles in Arabic, a video on the restoration of the Dresden Damascus Room, behind-the-scenes footage from rehearsals, and a nine-camera split screen video of the orchestra performing Bach’s Sinfonia after BWV 248 in a new arrangement by Tafelmusik.
