»But we had a lot of beautiful remembering, Palma! We could meet us secretly in Venice and you picked me up with your Gondola nearly every evening from my 2nd flat at the »Le Zitelle«… Wasn’t that beautiful…?«

And they continued to see their Peony-Gondola-Visions in the 16th century like that:

* * *

As Palma ended his Mandolin solo standing on the bridge »Ponte de la Pieta« at the big Promenade, all Venetian people, poor and rich, old and young applauded saying »Bravi, bravi!!!«. A lot of women smiled to Palma il Giovane and he smiled friendly and decently back, but his heart was only with Palmina, his secret deep music-love.

And one Chinese Women asked Palma il Giovane:
»You played so beautiful on your Mandoline…. Was it a love song?« she asked innocently and shy. Her hairs where made in the traditional Chinese style and she wear very beautiful traditional Chinese / Asian cloths.

»Oh, thank you! Yes… you are a musician?«, Palma asked.
»Yes, I live on Giudecca Island with my family. You are Palma il Giovane…! I and my family have seen you there very often, giving our Chinese princess painting lessons…isn’t it… Shì bu shì?«

»Ahh, you are from the Chinese Delegation, living in the secret gardens on Giudecca Island…?«, Palma realized very fast and put his painting utensils slovly back into a case.
Palma often could try the Asian music instruments there to learn how they are played and he tried to compose for them…

»Can I have some painting lessons…?«, the beautiful lady said.
She looked very shy and was smiling like a little Chinese princess, beautiful and innocent, but also very clever.
»I can explain you my Pipa…«, she said enthusiastic and her eyes began to shine very friendly.

»Oh, you are a Pipa playing musician….like, like Palmina Albina… who is music teacher on Giudecca Island for the Le Zitelle Girls Orchestra…«

»Oh, yes, I play Pipa….Palmina, she is very talented and played the lutes very beautiful. We all know her…«, the Chinese Woman said.

»Yes, I will give you some painting lessons the next time when I am having my paintings lessons with my students there…I am looking forward also to paint you, if you like…?«

* * *

Later as Palma finished his painting lessons on Giudecca island at the secret gardens it was evening and he was always thinking on his Palmina.

»Hm, should I visit her today and pick her up for a secret walk on the island Giorgio Maggiore?«, Palma thought and in this moment he felt a warm energy around his heart.
The Golden light from heart-to-heart was back – Yes he felt it also in the moment as he played his Mandolin solo for her on the bridge.

»Yes, we can see us today at 23 o’clock for a little walk with our lanterns on Giudecca island«, Palma il Giovane heart her answering deep in his heart.
It was for him like Palmina answered to him, communication without words, from ‚heart-to-heart‘.

picture 2 – View of the Gondola-Way from »Le Zitelle to the park at »Giorgio Maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

Palmina went again to her window in the 3rd floor, looking outside to the waters of Venice, looking to the direction of San Marco Place a little bit right, straight a head.
But in her heart she was with Palma il Giovane.
And Palma could feel it.
Always they had to think on each other, at night and at day.

Yes, she could feel: Palma will come today with his Gondola and pick her up. So strong is their heart-to-heart connection.

picture 3 - view of the gondola-way from »le zitelle to the park at »giorgio maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky
picture 3 – View of the Gondola-Way from »Le Zitelle to the park at »Giorgio Maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

Palma took the short way to pick Palmina for a short walk on island Giorgio Maggiore (left side). And in this moment a Gondola with a lot on bright lanterns came.

It is her Palma il Giovane!

How lucky she was. Palma did not forget her!

Palmina took her music score, her lutes, the Venetian and the other one and ran very fast down to the little promenade on Giudecca island. Palma waited smiling in his Gondola for her.

She looked carefully if some one is watching them.
»No one here…«, she said and went fast like a shy little bird to enter Palma’s Gondola.
As she was inside they closed the curtains so that no one could see who is now in this Gondola.

Palma smiled and was lucky to see her at this Peony Gondola hour. His face and her face was surrounded by the golden light of the lanterns inside of the Gondola.

Palmina started to play soft on her Lute and Palma was lucky to hear her playing a little concert only for him.

picture 4 - view of the gondola-way from »le zitelle to the park at »giorgio maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

picture 4 – View of the Gondola-Way from »Le Zitelle to the park at »Giorgio Maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

The Gondola moved slowly direct to the island Giorgio Maggiore which was direct nearby the island Giudecca.

picture 5 - view of the gondola-way from »le zitelle to the park at »giorgio maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

picture 5 – View of the Gondola-Way from »Le Zitelle to the park at »Giorgio Maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

Normally Palma took the shortest way through the little door-bow (see picture 1) to reach the island but on evenings like this one, his heart was full of inspiration and he wanted to be with her a little bit longer in the Gondola, so he gave orders to move the Gondola around the south-end of the Island (see picture 5 ).

picture 6 - view of the gondola-way from »le zitelle to the park at »giorgio maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

picture 6 – View of the Gondola-Way from »Le Zitelle to the park at »Giorgio Maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

Palmina realized this and started to play a few other music pieces. She variates some melodies that Palma composed for her in the last months.

Palma smiled, he loved her variation style. No one is talented like her to do this.

And after they reached the south part of this little island they left the Gondola and took some lantern with them to see their way.

picture 7 - view of the gondola-way from »le zitelle to the park at »giorgio maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

picture 7 – View of the Gondola-Way from »Le Zitelle to the park at »Giorgio Maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

But today the moon was shining very bright and they see their way very good.

Now they walked very romantic along the several ways on Giorgio Maggiore at the gardens and the beautiful park, full of plants and flowers, trees with sleeping pigeons and birds.

Later they sat on a bank directly looking over the lagoon water in the south direction.

picture 8 - view of the gondola-way from »le zitelle to the park at »giorgio maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky
picture 8 – View of the Gondola-Way from »Le Zitelle to the park at »Giorgio Maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

»Look the moon and the stars. How fine the view is to see them..,«, Palmina said and played on her Pipa-Lute also a Moon-light river variation.

picture 9 - view of the gondola-way from »le zitelle to the park at »giorgio maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky
picture 9 – View of the Gondola-Way from »Le Zitelle to the park at »Giorgio Maggiore« to see the planets and stars at the evening sky

Palma explained her a few stars, which are shining very bright on the evening sky. Palmina was very proud that Palma knows so much about the planets and the evening stars.

»Do you know that up there a crater-region on the moon is called »Marco Polo«¹…?«, Palma asked whispering tender and soft in her ear.«

»Wooo, Palmina… I did not know this… My painter, my astronomer, my composer…my secret love story writer…«, whispering soft into his ear.
After a while of silence Palma put his arm around her and she smiled in this soft moon-light.

»Can you play my ‚Marco Polo Love Song?’«, Palma asked shy.

»Yes, you composed it for me as the Delegation made a cultural exchange concert in the Dogan’s Palace. Hach, Palma…Marco Polo Love Song…describing the love between the famous Marco Polo from Venice and the Chinese Princess, which was a Buddhist nun…Hach and he brought her back to Venice to Giudecca Island with 600 people from the West-Lake…and,and maybe, they met secretly every evening like we both here on the island Giorgio Maggiore to speak and to make music…Our souls are like them…«, Palmina said whispering and friendly

And Palmina took her music instrument and started to play on her Pipa-Lute for him under this beautiful Romanic moon-shine, under the now suddenly brighter shining Stars of Venice, here in the south-end of the little island Giorgio Maggiore and all the sleeping Pigeons in the trees of the park are listening to them.

* * *

During they saw this beautiful remembering in their Peony Gondola, Palmina asked Palma: »Palma? Did the little Chinese Princess from the Secret Gardens on Giudecca Island inspire you to compose this song…? Did she awake the Marco Polo in you…? Maybe she opened the remembering on us 400 years ago…?«

Palmina looked shy and smiled and Palma smiled also very shy.

»Did you teach her European painting styles technique?.. Did you paint her? Is she beautiful?«

And Palmina’s eyes looked like an innocent deer and Palma kissed her cheeks tender and soft and smiled.

And now Palma spoke with his heart to her heart and in their Peony Gondola dream Palma started to play on his Mandolin and he played also on an instrument which was invented and developed by Johann Sebastian Bach and Gottfried Silbermann² in the 18th century.

Yes, in the Peony Gondola Palma could play the Mandolin AND the Piano in the same moment only with his thought and his love for his Pigeon.

And Palma and Palmina listened to this music:

¹ Marco Polo Crater on Moon – Wikipedia – https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marco_Polo_(Mondkrater)

² Gottfried Silbermann – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gottfried_Silbermann

»Gottfried Silbermann (January 14, 1683 – August 4, 1753) was a German builder of keyboard instruments. He built harpsichords, clavichords, organs, and fortepianos; his modern reputation rests mainly on the latter two.«

Silbermann and Bach

»The 18th-century musician Johann Friedrich Agricola tells a story about the relationship of Silbermann, Johann Sebastian Bach, and pianos. After Silbermann had completed two instruments, Agricola says, he showed them to Bach, who replied critically, saying that the tone was weak in the treble and the keys were hard to play even though the tone was pleasant. Silbermann was stung and angered by the criticism, but ultimately took it to heart and was able to improve his pianos (exactly how is not known, but it may have been the result of Silbermann’s encountering Cristofori’s most mature instruments). The improved Silbermann pianos met with Bach’s „complete approval“ („völlige Gutheißung“), and indeed a preserved sales voucher dated May 8, 1749 shows that Bach acted as an intermediary for Silbermann in the sale of one of his pianos. Bach also changed his mind about Silbermann’s organs as well, as borne out by the fact that he was asked by both the church and Silbermann to give the inaugural concert of his new instrument on 1 December 1736 for the Frauenkirche Dresden.«

197. Organ solo for Pipsy (2)

And again they saw a Vision about Pipsy and Johann Sebastian Bach in the 18th Century and it was like that:

* * *

After Johann Sebastian Bach told the short story about Palma il Giovane to his Daughter Elisabeth and his wife Anna Magdalena Bach Pipsy the little bird said: »Peep – peep – peep – peep«.

»Wow, this all the little yellow canary bird told you…? You really understand her language?«

»Of course…« Bach said and twinkled to his two women.

»Father knows a lot, he had also a good contact to prominent persons…«, Anna Magdalena Bach said proud.
»Oh, yes he spoke also once with Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz¹, who was born in our city here… «, Elisabeth remembered.

»Yes, he told us about the very old Chinese »I-Ging«, the Book of Change. Look here, this paper he got from China. He had a good correspondence to China. Yes, the contact to China was very good since Marco Polo’s time….till today…«

picture - A diagram of I Ching hexagrams sent to Leibniz from Joachim Bouvet. The Arabic numerals were added by Leibniz.jpg

picture – A diagram of I Ching hexagrams sent to Leibniz from Joachim Bouvet. The Arabic numerals were added by Leibniz.

»What?… father, he had letter contact to China…?…«

»Yes, maybe the communication will be faster in 200 years, but in 200 years you would not to have to wait weeks, months or even years for an answer of a letter. isn’t it..?«

»Yes, in the future the communication to China will be faster and more secure. Never a letter will be stolen…«, Elisabeth said.

Suddenly the little canary bird was sad and had tears in her eyes and made »Peeeeeep, peeeep, peeeeep« from her little cage.

»Hmmm, Pipsy is sad it remembers her that Palma il Giovane wrote so much letters to his Pigeon and the dark sugar earth administrators stole her communication and sold it to their enemy…«

»Poor Palma and Palmina….«

»Father, Pipsy is sad… Go again to the organ and play something for her…«

And Pipsy jumped in her cage happy as she heard that, being lucky know that her old Master is Playing for her on the Organ.

And again Bach went down in the street in the church and played for his Pipsy and the little bird Pipsy listened looking through the window and was silent and moved a little bit her head, looking if she could see her Johann Sebastian Bach a little bit.

* * *

After Palmina and Palma saw this vision both smiled and Palmina was a little bit red on her cheeks as she heard about that even in the 18th century there was an uncomplicated and secure way to communicate with China.Yes, Palmina was shy because she saw the reaction of the Yellow bird. It remembers her that Palma once wrote her a letter and she could read his letter only after one year because one year ago the criminal organisation of the »church of crime« which steal and sell children for prostitution did steal Palma’s letter to her.

»Hach, Palma…we had not an easy way of communication in our 16th century…«

»Hmm, Palma «said a little bit sad and he did as if he did not recognize her sentence.

After that the Peony Gondola showed them an Organ music like that:

¹ Gottfried Wilhelm (von) Leibniz – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gottfried_Wilhelm_Leibniz

»Gottfried Wilhelm (von) Leibniz (sometimes spelled Leibnitz) (/ˈlaɪbnɪts/; German: [ˈɡɔtfʁiːt ˈvɪlhɛlm fɔn ˈlaɪbnɪts] or [ˈlaɪpnɪts]; French: Godefroi Guillaume Leibnitz; 1 July 1646 [O.S. 21 June] – 14 November 1716) was a prominent German polymath and philosopher in the history of mathematics and the history of philosophy. His most notable accomplishment was conceiving the ideas of differential and integral calculus, independently of Isaac Newton’s contemporaneous developments.[…]«

Leibniz corresponding with China about the I-Ging:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gottfried_Wilhelm_Leibniz#Sinophile

»Leibniz was perhaps the first major European intellectual to take a close interest in Chinese civilization, which he knew by corresponding with, and reading other works by, European Christian missionaries posted in China. Having read Confucius Sinarum Philosophus on the first year of its publication, he concluded that Europeans could learn much from the Confucian ethical tradition. He mulled over the possibility that the Chinese characters were an unwitting form of his universal characteristic. He noted with fascination how the I Ching hexagrams correspond to the binary numbers from 000000 to 111111, and concluded that this mapping was evidence of major Chinese accomplishments in the sort of philosophical mathematics he admired. Leibniz communicated his ideas of the binary system representing Christianity to the Emperor of China hoping it would convert him. Leibniz may be the only major Western philosopher who attempted to accommodate Confucian ideas to prevailing European beliefs.

Leibniz’s attraction to Chinese philosophy originates from his perception that Chinese philosophy was similar to his own. The historian E.R. Hughes suggests that Leibniz’s ideas of „simple substance“ and „pre-established harmony“ were directly influenced by Confucianism, pointing to the fact that they were conceived during the period that he was reading Confucius Sinarum Philosophus.«

And the continued to dream they Peony-Gondola-Dream at 23 o’clock at 11 p.m and they saw this visions:

* * *

And Johann Sebastian Bach explained the next day his daughter Elisabeth and his wife Anna Magdalena Bach what the yellow bird told him about Palma il Giovannes live 150 years ago.

Johann Sebastian started to re-tell the beautiful episode like that and said:

»….and Palma could not stop thinking on his Palmina Albina, his Pigeon, his Inspiration. So he took his Mandolin and went a long the big promenade till he was at the bridge »Ponte de la Pieta« (see picture).

He looked a little bit right to the Giudecca Island where Palmina has her 2nd flat at the »Le Zitelle« in the 3rd floor (two or three windows).

Palma lifted his Mandolin and started to play his music dedication to her.

Palmina was in her flat at Giudecca Island.
Suddenly she stopped playing her Lute and stood up to look our from her windows.

She looked into the direction of the La Pieta a little bit to the right side.

Deep in her heart she could feel that Palma is exactly now thinking on her and making a music dedication for her.

A lot of Venetian people saw Palma il Giovanne looking in the far – yes, Giudecca Island was far and was near – and playing for his deep old music love.

All women who went along the bridge, especially the fine women of Venice wanted to listen Palma’s music. The women understood Palma’s music: It is a deep love friendship dedication to a women standing far, far away on her window, standing on the other side of the water.

»Ach, if my husband would be so romantic and made this music for me…hach, hach, hach…« some beautiful women said.

Suddenly the Peony Gondola made it possible that Palmina could hear Palma playing like that and she listened smiling and innocently to that:

VIDEO: [Mandoline solo »Benedictus« (From „Prage Messe“)] https://youtu.be/TDkDjBZJLhQ

And after Palmina saw this vision she understood: Palma is expressing his feeling in music and she felt very honoured to get this dedication from him, Palma il Giovane. She smiled and put her head again on Palma’s side, she wished that their music friendship never would have an end and will stay even in hundreds of years…

Palma put his arm around her, sitting on her side in the Peony Gondola and could read in her thoughts and was happy.

(to be continued…)

195. Pipsy can’t sleep…

195. Pipsy can’t sleep…

 

And at their Peony Gondola they continued to dream these visions at 23 o’clock at 11 p.m.

Palmina hold his hand and Palma could feel her fingers around his right hand.

Palmina gave him tender kisses on his right cheek and Palma could feel it and he smiled.

He gave her also some tender kisses back.
Now they saw the Vision of Johann Sebastian Bach and the Bird Pipsy:

* * *

Pipsy didn’t want to sleep.

Bach tried to use a towel and to put it to cover the little cage.

»So now Pipsy will sleep..hmm?«

But Pipsy did not sleep, she always has to think on her Johann Sebastian Bach.

»Pipsy is not sleeping…«, Johann Sebastian said.
And Pipsy went to the other end of the cage to be near to his Master Johann Sebastian Bach.

»Should I play something on the organ in the church…now hmm?«

»Peep – peep – peep – peep«, Pipsy answered.

And Bach went down in the street and entered the Church.
After a while Pipsy could hear some music coming from the church where Bach was playing for his Pipsy.

And Pipsy looked from his little wooden cage through the window down to the street and listened Bach’s Organ music inspiration.

And here are some organ music impressions, inspired by this scene and it sounds like that:

194. A Mandolin and a nun

194. A Mandolin and a nun

So they continued their talk about art and music in their Peony Gondola and saw this vision:

* * *

»And look, here at the left side of the painting«, Palmina discovered a Mandolin player and pointed at a group of painted persons.

picture 1 - detail of Palma's painting »Trionfo di San Giulian«.png
picture 1 – detail of Palma’s painting

»Oh, I remember her also a member of our Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery… Yes, she played Mandolin or so… She played also with the »Le Zitelle Girls Orchester« which Antonio Vivaldi co-founded as »La Pieta Girls Orchestra« at the »Ospedale«¹ at the Pieta near your bakery shop…«

picture 2 - detail of Palma's painting »Trionfo di San Giulian«.png

»Oh, look there is also a nun…«, Palmina said innocent and smiling.

»Hmmm, she was also singing in our Choir.«

»Also at the choir of Maestro Claudio Monteverdi at the San Marco Cathedral?You know the choir on the left side. She looks very similar to a nun we knew very good…?«

»Hmm….Ahh, I know which nun you mean…«

»Yes, she prayed also for our social projects intention for our »Le Zitelle girls«…to help the beautiful girls to prevent them from child-prostitution…yes,yes…«

picture 3 - detail of palma's painting »trionfo di san giulian«

»…and the Mandolin playing women was the mother of a very important clerical person, isn’t it?«, Palmina asked fast remembering.

»Yes, but she suffered very much that her son didn’t continue to play the Mandolin. She hoped he will play with us in the Gallery Orchestra, but the dark sugar earth criminal network tried to influence the clerical persons to forbid him the contact to the social projects…They have their very subtle way to destroy social relations and friendship.«

»You mean the criminal Organisation which call them selves Church of Syngenetic or Diabetics ? or ‚Church of Secure Crime‘ or so… I don’t know…«

»The name of that organisation is not clear in the public, but they are criminals and they sell children and women; they slave beautiful girls and sell them. Therefore the family of the mighty Dogan Loredan (see painting of Dogan Loredan by Titian) founded 1500 this »Le Zitelle« (»Santa Maria de la Presentatione«) in Venice to stop the growing influence of that criminal organisation… And yes, this criminal organisation is responsible for the loss of our Republic at the east Adriatic Island in the year 1572…«, Palma explained like an old master.

»..Yes, I know, I am afraid that my father once…oh let’s speak about something better…«, Palmina said sad.

A few moments Palma and Palmina did not speak and looked thinking a while,
Yes, the father of Palmina was a dark point and not good to talk about.

Once Palmina saved 30 women freeing them from a pirate ship from the dark sugar earth organisation and helping to arrest the members of this criminal Organisation of human traffic. She helped with her magic lute playing and supported Palma and the police to arrest the criminals and to free the 30 women.

In this moment they say this scene in the heart like a moving image.

Yes, Palmina remembered and Palma remembered also.

Later they had again a Vision of Johann Sebastian Bach 150 years later and they saw this:

* * *

Johann Sebastian Bach looked now up to his two women after he played the D-Magior part of the beautiful Chaconna for Lute.

»Thank you, Sebastian!«, Anna Magdalena said.

»Thanks, daddy..“, Elisabeth said and kissed her father.

»Peep – peep – peep – peep«, Pipsy the little yellow canary bird said.

»You see, you made all your 3 women lucky…«, Anna Magdalena said proud.

During she said she observed that Elisabeth started shy to smile more and more and they all started slowly the laugh more and more.
No one knows the secret about what they are laughing now so much.

After a while Bach looked to his beautiful and sweet daughter Elisabeth and said to her:
»Elisabeth, do you know why I really did not agree so fast that you marry Altnikol?«

»No, father, he is your best music student. He assist you at a lot of music projects like a real son… He helped you to write down the music score ‚Art of fugue’… I do not know the reason why…«

»…Elisabeth, It is the old story of fathers who love their daughters very, very much…maybe too much. They don’t want to give away their beloved sweet daughters. For a father it is hard to accept that an other important man is now in the middle of his daughters life than the father… A father who loves his daughter really lies about this if he says that THIS is not a problem for him…«, Johann Sebastian said.

Elisabeth looked shy and smiled.

»Also for me as mother it is not easy to loose a daughter, yes you are 4 daughters, but parents love their children and if they marry it is a new part of their live…also for the parents«.

»So let’s stop to be sad about the past. Let’s look in the future… I composed a little cantata: the ‚Coffee-Cantata’«
»The Coffee Cantata?«
»Father is writing his first opera like Claudio Monteverdi in Venice?«, Elisabeth asked fast her mother.

»Oh, not an opera only a cantata about a father who wants not to allow her daughter to marry a man if she didn’t stop to drink coffee.²«

»..oh she was not allowed to marry a man? Poor daughter, this is like…«

»..yes this is like me…so in this story I am the old »Zeidel-bear« but at the end his clever daughter Lieschen³ won the game. She wrote in the newspaper that she will marry only a man who allows her to cook coffee as much as she wants… And so she got her dream prince…«
Let’s hear the music. Mother will sing the Soprano, father you play the orchestra on the harpsichord and I will play the Violin.

And they started to play the „Coffee Cantate“ like this:

VIDEO: [ Aria of Joh.Seb.Bach »Coffee Cantate« (Kaffee Kantate)] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hi1PY0N3iGs

8. Aria (Sopran): „Heute noch, Lieber Vater tut es doch!“

(to be continued…)

¹ Not to mix up with the »Ospedale« at the Crociferi in the North of Venice, where Palma painted 10 years on the 8 Paintings

² In the 18 century the women drunk much coffee and the government forbid it. They sent the so called „Schnüffler“, the „sniffers“ to sniff if it smells in the streets like coffee to find out if there is someone cooking illegally coffee. (The people drunk too much coffee at that time, especially the women)
So Bach makes fun about this actual government law.

³ »Lieschen« is the short form of the name ‚Elisabeth‘ in the German language

*) Coffee Cantata – Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schweigt_stille,_plaudert_nicht,_BWV_211

»Schweigt stille, plaudert nicht (Be still, stop chattering), BWV 211, also known as the Coffee Cantata, is a secular cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. Although classified as a cantata, it is essentially a miniature comic opera. In a satirical commentary, the cantata amusingly tells of an addiction to coffee. «

193. Remembering the future in the Peony Gondola

193. Remembering the future in the Peony Gondola

picture palma il giovane's huge painting in san zulian

picture Palma il Giovane’s huge painting in San Zulian (1580-1588)

And they saw also this in their dreaming Peony Vision in their Peony Gondola:

* * *

Palma il Giovane painted and painted on the huge painting ‚Triumpho di San Giulian‘ during 8 years. (1580-1588).
Palmina played and played during this time wonderfully on her lute to support him.

How often she brought him eating, fresh fine little backed bread (a Venice Speciality), to help him to have a little break and rest during his painting work in the Chiesa San Zulian or San Antonin near her home, where she lived in the 16th century in a very small room in the ‚Calle della Pieta‘ like a little bird doing rehearsal on her beautiful lutes.

Often she came at evening with her lantern and shined in the dark church to help him to go home so that he could sleep a little bit before he continues his hard art working during the whole day.

It was also very dangerous to paint for hours in this height at the scaffolding…

The painting work was long and hard. Without Palmina he would not have the power to paint such big and huge paintings in Venice.

They saw also the details of the paintings like this:

picture 1 - detail (palmina as saint virgin) of palma il giovane's huge painting in san zulian
picture 1 – detail (Palmina as Saint Virgin) of Palma il Giovane’s huge painting in San Zulian

»Yes that’s me – secretly painted by you…«

picture 2 - detail (portrait of a women) of palma il giovane's huge painting in san zulian

picture 2 – detail (portrait of a women) of Palma il Giovane’s huge painting in San Zulian

»…and look here… this detail… the women in red, how was her name…?«, Palmina asked.

»Yes, she was a good friend of the family. Adriana knows her name, she wanted to be painted also in this artwork. Didn’t she play also Viola da Gamba…?«

»Oh, yes, Palma I remember in the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery she played together often with us musicians. She had a lot of instruments at home…Did you remember her Viola da Gamba collection…?«
»Aaah…Yes she played also at home with us and assisted you with music-therapy at home and private concerts for special guests.«

»Yes, music is therapy for body and soul…«, Palmina nodded and remembered also this beautiful music moments in their eternal Venice.

How often Palma played also with his Viola music instrument together with them.

And again they had a Vision of Johann Sebastian Bach, who lived over 150 years later then Palma and Palmina.
But he heart from the deep music love of Palmina and Palma il Giovane so that he composed several Lute Artworks in dedication to her and as thank you that she did not give up to think on his Palma il Giovane.

And after he composed the melody in D-Major he looked to his little bird beside the harpsichord. After he cares her wings and she touched him with his bill Bach made a half coup with his hand like a little bird-nest-form so that the bird looked and after a while she entered this little hand-nest carefully.
The little yellow canary laid his head on the border of the nest and opened his wings and closed it.

As Anna Magdalena entered the composing room with her daughter Elisabeth they observed this scene smiling in the background and came slowly nearer.

»Look the little bird feel so secure in Johann Sebastian’s hand….«
»Yes, she likes him very much…how sweet…how tender she is laying in his hand-nest. She shows him that she likes him with that. Maybe she wants to have a bird-nest…«

»The little yellow female canary bird is inspiring our big composer and helped him to be again creative…«, Anna Magdalena said.

»Yes, look how much Lute art works he has written in the last time! This is a wonder bird! And look this Ciaconna!!….«

And the two women looked at the music score and smiled at each other.

»It is a deep love – Like Palma and Palmina isn’t it…«

»And what is that? Johann Sebastian…«

»It is a Gondola Song – The bird sung the melody and I wrote it down! I think like this the Melody of the Peony Gondola Song could have sound like that…«, Johann Sebastian said full of love.

»What happened with him?…«, Elisabeth whispered in the ear as Johann Sebastian turned again his head back to the little bird which was tender sitting in his hand.

»I think the Story of ‚Palma il Giovane – The Peony Gondola‘ made him so friendly – There is something in his heart that wants to come into music about this music-love-friendship between Palmina Albina and Palma il Giovane…«

»Elisabeth, Yesterday I saw that the yellow bird tweeted like speaking to Johann Sebastian… As he composed the D-Major-part of the Chaconna he composed suddenly in Renaissance Style not in Baroque style – The Spirit of this Palmina Albina was now with him in this moment like a Saint Cecilia. He said that this part describes the beautiful moments as they could met in the Gondola. You know in the city Venice they have vehicles, they have Gondolas swimming in the canale in the water…«

»…oh how romantic! He feels the tender secret love of these souls. Palma and Palmina. And she composed and played maybe something like this D-Major part for him sitting in the Peony Gondola with him…«

»Maybe this Chaconna is a music answer as thank you to her after more then hundred years…an eternal music communication which goes beyond time and space…«

»Oh, Johann Sebastian, play for us this D-Major part from Chaconna for us…«

»Elisabeth, he is now working and composing…«

Elisabeth was shy but she asked: »….ohh, please, father, the little yellow canary bird wants that also…Pip-sy am I right…?«

And the bird answered tweeting several times like speaking YES!.

»Ok, my women. If 3 women are asking me to play this Renaissance Remembering to Palmina Albina I will do so..«

And Johann Sebastian started to play the D-Major part of the Chaconna like that:

Chaccona – D-Major Part

And now they saw in a Vision Palmina playing in the 16th century for Palma in the Peony Gondola, in the Titian School, in the Dogan’s Palace, in the Venice-Titian-Art-Galery, at the Le Zitelle, at the Chiesa San Zulian, San Antonin, at the Ospedalleto, at the Jesuits and all over Venice in concerts, privatly, secretly, officially, during the painting work during his speech as music therapist.
Yes, Palmina was all the time in the near of Palma il Giovane and protected him like a secret Body Guard, like an Angel, like Pigeon who never lost the contact to his Pigeon friend.

Johann Sebastian had tears in his eyes as he played, all this remembering he saw so real and all the luck and the paint and difficulties he saw in his heart.
Yes, Johann Sebastian want to express all he is feeling in notes and will keep this tender secret with his family and the past would wonder why Johann Sebastian composed so much Lute music. Only these 3 female souls are knowing the deep secret about these Lute artworks.

* * *

And as Palmina saw this Vision in the Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock, at 11 p.m Palmina put her head on Palma’s shoulder and asked: »Oh, Palma did this really happen…?«

»Did? It will maybe happen in more then 150 years…. We are inspiring artists, musicians, composers, poets, philosophers in the future. Think the Opera will be founded by the first composition of Claudio Monteverdi in Venice and Mantua in inspiration of our secret music-friendship and love…«

»Oh, we have to do the best way in our difficult situations and so we will reach all our spiritual art’s and spiritual aim…?«

»Yes, my pigeon, Yes…«

And after Palmina played nearly 3 hours only for her secret and deep love Jacopo Palma il Giovane – and Palma listened to her smiling and lucky every note – Palma hugged Palmina very long and full of love being connected from heart to heart as thank you for playing so beautifully for him.

»Such a wonderful music, Palma!«

»Yes, every Note is a dedication to you, my Pigeon…«

»And every note of my interpretation is a dedication to you Palma, my composer.«

»Oh, I feel so honoured. They are great really great compositions for Lute.«

»The Lute solo are composed as a big ‚thank you‘ to you that you helped me and did not stop thinking on me all the years, Palmina. You see even in later centuries Vivaldi and Bach are remembering our deep love and our deep love for art and music. And this remembering is a hope-message for other generations not to give up. Especially the Lute – Suite with the ‚Chaconna‘ ¹ has the expression of our deep heart – to – heart – connection« Palma said to his little Pigeon.
The Major – „Maggiore“ – part² expressing the time they could see in the Gondola.
But it expresses also the cyclic movement of cosmos and life, the movement of the planets and stars.

»But how did you…?«, Palmina asked,

»…You see, Palmina, here, in our Peony Gondola we are in an other dimension beyond time and space. So if the heaven is leading us in a special Vision and direction we can understand our mission in time and space better.«

»Wooo…«, Palmina said innocent.

»…I want to say that the Peony Gondola helps us not to do thinks we WANT but to do thinks we SHOULD.« he said.

»….and the little yellow canary bird did inspire his composer master so that he started again to be creative as he SHOULD do it in time and space – to do his composing mission for the future generations…« Palmina said.

»Without you I also could not paint so much paintings in the 16th and 17th century…«

»But I played only on my lute, sitting beside you or I played little concerts in Venice making some presentations of your fresh painted paintings by you in Venice.«

»’Only?’…Oh, no Palmina not ‚only’…Remember the big presentations of my paintings in the Church Chiesa San Zulian near the San Marco Place…it was so beautiful Palmina. I remember every music piece you played there – some were composed from me – some were composed as melodies from me and you composed genius variations of 10 minutes of my melody on your Lute and all the people listened and were so lucky. «

»Yes, I remember also all these beautiful concerts… Yes, I remember, Palma, my painter, my composer, my writer….What an atmosphere we had….
The church was full of beautiful candle lights and all Venetian Guests – special guests – were so happy to see the first time your huge painting ‚Triumpho di San Giulian’«

picture 3 :  8 years Palma painted on this painting in the Chiesa di San Zulian

»Yes, Palmina – It is our secret!  I painted 8 years on this huge painting…«

»…and a lot of famous Venetian citizens wanted to be painted in this artwork…«

»Yes, every day someone told me or you, or to Mihaela, your cousin, Adriana or to your mother, that they would also pay money to be painted in this huge painting…I remember so much people who entered your Atelier and I played the lute during the painting session… I remember also so much students wanted to be painted in this painting or wanted to assist and to help you with the painting artwork…«
»Ohh, yes my students, I had so much students at the famous Titian School in Venice…«

* * *

Later they saw again a Vision of the Live of the Composer Johann Sebastian Bach (he (lived in the 17h and in the 18th century) how the little talented canary bird is helping him.

* * *

»Oh, my sweet yellow canary bird. I love you and I want to ask you If I should compose this melody in C-Major or in D-Major…«.

The canary bird seemed to understand Johann Sebastian and came to the other side of the cage and looked to the music score, which he was holding to the cage, and after a while the little bird showed with his bill at the place of the note D.

»Oh…In D-Major. Thank you my inspiration, my angel, my secret music friend.«, he said and smiled like he selden smiled.

And Bach wrote this melody in D-MagIor.

After he played it he looked to his sweet little yellow bird and she made ‚peep – peep‘

»Thank you my sweet composing bird!«

Johann Sebastian opened the door of the cage and came slowly with his huge hand in the cage but the sweet bird was not nervous or afraid.

He came with shy steps near to his finger and Johann Sebastian started to cares the innocent wings, very soft and tender.
Normally birds don’t like this but this little canary bird was different and she seems to love her master and he seemed to love his little bird and so the bird also touched tender the finger of Johann Sebastian to show him that she likes him also.

And so they did often and now Johann Sebastian composed and composed and composed…

* * *

After they saw this tender Vision of the composer and his inspiration canary bird Palmina said: »This is so sweet. The big composer and the little yellow canary bird…«

After a while Palmina smiled and said soft:
»Pi – «

And Palma answered soft:

» – Pa«

She said again »Pi – «

And Palma answered soft:

» – Pa«

and both said together »Liu – to – kiss !!!«

»Such a beautiful remembering«, Palmina said with a soft sigh.
And she put her head on Palma’s side.

Palma hold her with his arm and said: »Oh my Pigeon, my Inspiration, my Angel and secret personal female body guard. Saint Lucy send you in my live to inspire and to help me. I love you Palmina.«

»Yes, Saint Lucy and Saint Cecilia and the Saint Virgin are taking care of you Palma. They like and protect you!«
And suddenly the Peony Gondola showed them a new vision and what they saw was a mystic Vision, but let’s see it:

* * *

People with cloths like Antonio Vivaldi wear it went a long the street and some looked up to the window in the first floor.

There was a little yellow bird in a little wooden cage and the bird tweeted lucky and friendly.

Some people spoke: »Oh, look…up there, a little yellow canary bird. Since this composer has this bird he is composing again.«

»You are right. He is composing! Saint Cecilia has kissed him and maybe also Saint Lucy…«

In the kitchen of this flat, in the 1st floor, where two women speaking to each other.

»How long he was unfriendly…how long he was only sitting alone in his composing room and did write nothing….«

»But now: Since you brought him this little canary bird he seemed to be inspired and he is composing a lot of Suites of Lute solo.«

»Amazing! He is composing again! ….For lute? But why?«

»…He is fascinated by this Venetian Lute Player Palmina Albina…«, the wife of the composer said.

»Mother, Palmina Albina? He is composing for her?«

»Yes, my Elisabeth. He is composing for her all the time. 6 Suites for Lute and a lot of Lute artworks…«

»What, father is composing for Lute? He normally composed for Harpsichord, for Violin and Harpsichord for Organ, for Choir, for Orchestra; but for Lute? Hmm, she inspires him… I was wondering why he changes his opinion about me and Altnikol so fast. I thought he will never allow us to…«

»…Oh…Elisabeth…. The reason why he agreed unexpected, after such a long time was that I, … I told him this story about the secret love of Palmina Albina and the famous painter Palma il Giovane from Venice….He normally is not open for love stories. He is normally very sever – but this love story seemed to open his heard…«

»Oh, really she must be a Saint… A Saint Angel of Music sent by the heaven. Nothing else could reach fathers hurt music-heart in these days. Tell me more how did father react about this love story?«, Elisabeth wanted to know.

»Oh, Elisabeth. You know father has very big problems with the ‚Rathsherrn‘ of Leipzig. They shorted his money as music director and they made a lot intrigues against him and his musicians and his students. Therefore he stooped to compose and was more and more alone in his composing room. He seemed also to be ill – his heart suffers not to be creative.«

»And how did you arrange it that father said yes to me and Altnikol. We wanted to ask and tell him – If we have children one will be a musician and one will be a painter. We hoped maybe this will open his heart to say YES!«, Elisabeth said.

»I told him the long story of Palma il Giovane – The Peony Gondola. And after a while I could see that his eyes looked straight ahead like looking through walls. I could see that he was the first time, after a so long time, interested in this love story.

Listen, father said:
‚Such a deep real love – they didn’t give up to think on each other. They meet secretly in the famous Peony Gondola and they worked on so much artworks together. How impressive. I have to compose for her Lute Music. Someone has to thank her….This innocent angel‘
And he started to write from this moment his Lute Suites till today.

And I continued to tell him the legend about them, which is today told in Venice.

After a few days he said: ‚Such a sad father – not allowing them to have contact and not allowing them to marry… How can a father be so cruel to his daughter…I would never be such a hard father to my daughters.’ And father looked to his little yellow canary bird in the cage on his composing harpsichord and then he looked to me with asking eyes and after the bird made several times ‚Peep – peep – peep‘ he took long air in his lung like a big huge organ and he said like an organ plenum sound: ‚YES,! Yes, Altnikol can have my daughter Elisabeth and their children can be artists: musicians or landscape painter…‘

And I said to him: ‚ Oh, Johann Sebastian, my composer, how happy you making me, Elisabeth and of course Altnikol. Altnikol will help you to write down the ‚Art of Fugue‘. He will be a very good law-in-son.«

And as they spoke so in the kitchen, Johann Sebastian composed very happy in his composing room and looked always to his little yellow bird in the wooden cage and the female bird said: »Peep – peep -peep«.

Johann Sebastian smiled and came with his big nose to the cage and said »Pa – Pa -Pa«. The little bird came to the nose of and gave him a tender sweet kiss with her little bil.

* * *

After they saw this Peony Vision in their Peony hour at 11 p.m. at 23 o’clock, Palmina said: »Ohhhhh! Piiiiiiii- Paaaaaaa!«

And Palma gave her a tender kiss on her cheek and smiled.

»This will be the most known composer in Europe. He will be the teacher of all composer generations coming in the future in East and West – North and South – Europe and Asia«, Palma explained to his little Pigeon.

And Palmina suddenly was inspired and played on her lute for Palma il Giovanne and listened her and was very very lucky, …and yes, it was like this:

»Johann Sebastian Bach (31 March [O.S. 21 March] 1685 – 28 July 1750) was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach Revival he has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.

The Bach family already counted several composers when Johann Sebastian was born as the last child of a city musician in Eisenach. After becoming an orphan at age 10, he lived for five years with his eldest brother Johann Christoph Bach, after which he continued his musical development in Lüneburg. […]«

190. Secret painting of Palmina at the Palazzo Vendramin in Venice

»What was that?«, Palmina wondering about that Peony-Gondola-Vision.

»Oh this was a Vision of the 21st Century about a little boy who is writes a story…«

»What has this little boy and this Mars story to do with us Palma and wasn’t that a painting by Ludevit your painting student? I know his paintings from the Titian School in Venice.«

»Yes, Palmina it is. And this boy will write about him and a novel which is playing on Mars – His paintings are inspiring to a novel and the boy remembers that. They had been the first men on Planet Mars…«

»Oh isn’t that dangerous? The dark sugar earth administrators will tell to their catholic friends. You know what they made with Astronomers who discovered new planets in our 16th century…«

»Yes, but it is in the 21st century. In our 16th century the catholic church made a lot of problems to scientists like Galileo who discovered Neptune on 8. December 1612¹…«

»…Oh no what’s wrong with them?«

»My painting student Ludevit who painted a lot of paintings from Mars and other Planet moons in Venice had to be careful with his paintings. No one knows what the Vatican will do to artists who dare to paint landscapes from other planets.
Also my student Cosmas da Castrofranco painted secretly a Landscape from an other Planet in the right left part in the Painting of the 3 Holy Kings«

»Ooooh, Cosmas da Castrofranco, he was also your student and he painted like Ludevit Planet Landscapes… «

»Yes..psst…a secret..he was not the only one; a lot of us liked to do that..and the little boy, in the Vision will, if he is much elder, write our story about our deep music-art-painting friendship Palmina.«

»Oh,really…Oh, I love you Palma, this would be amazing if someone can read about our spiritual adventures in music and art. Maybe we will inspire other generations not to give up….«

»You are inspiring me so much, Palmina, even we can only met us in this Peony Gondola.«

And suddenly they had this Peony Vision in the Peony hour at 11 p.m.

They saw this painting:Vendramin.png

It shows Palmina secretly painted as a Bodyguard.

I painted this in the palazzo Vendramin in Venice to remember our secret friendship, Palmina, my Pigeon.«
»Yes, we had the Idea that I dress my self with a traditional Bodyboard uniform of our 16th century to hide myself identity to be in your near. So no one could figure out that Palmina Albina and Palma il Giovane are meeting secretly to inspire themselves in arts and music….«, Palmina said proud and smiled being lucky to have this beautiful secret remembering.«

During that the Peony Gondola moved again to Planet Mars and they saw thin in their Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

»Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!«

»Oh, Thank you, also Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!«

After the whole family with all our uncles and aunts celebrated with us Christmas in our family Villa I wanted later to go up to uncle Vili’s working room to hear news about his mars-novel.

Uncle Vily did not turn off his table lamp and there had been a lot of interesting papers there with technical calculations and technical drawings.

I did not understand these thinks, too complicated for a young boy in my age, but it fascinated me more and more.

I read two papers:

On one paper he wrote long time ago a text. Every text started with a date »sol 350« or so.
I think a »sol« means it means a Martian day started with the day 1 as »sol 1«.
Today I will ask uncle what it means…

…and on the other paper he wrote in his type writer the new version a little bit longer and he added some passages.

I read the new version:
»…today we reached sol 350 on our Mars Mission and on earth we have the 24.December – Christmas. Our 20 person team prepared a little Christmas Tree to celebrate Christmas on Mars. We are people from different cultures and religions but they celebrate all this day also as symbol of peace and friendship.
It looks funny to know that we are the first space-scientist astronauts who are celebrating Christmas on an other planet…
…I prepared some Christmas songs on my little Mandolin and my collegues wanted also to sing some well known Christmas songs like Stille Nacht and the Peony Gondola Song. «

Then I looked at the older paper of Uncle Vily – the paper was also made from an other material it seemed to be water and fire proof and it was not possible to destroy the paper with humans hands.

The text was:

»Sol 350 – (Christmas day after earth date and time earth)

All systems are working without problems and had been checked 2 times by all responsible persons:

1 – Positive results had been at
2 – Oxygen production.
2 – Electric production.
3 – Water reproduction.
4 – Transmission to the radio station on moon Phobos.
5 – Weather-Station tower at Schiaparelly crater.
6 – Remote Relaise for to the 2nd Dragonfly.
7 – All systems on the mobile exploration station bus ‚Astra‘.
8 – All Emergency Systems.

Weather forecast and report within 12 hours:

Prognosis is good weather conditions – no storm warning for the 24 hour.

Weather report: Clear weather evening stars in the last 12 h.

Astronomic report from the observatory:

The calculation of the moon rise of Phobos and Moon Daimos had been corrected for 8 seconds at the Declination 11.25 circle over the horizon.

The new ephemerides of the moon movements seen from Mars will be transmitted to earth on sol 351 at the first radio transmission contact to the moon station.

REMARKS:
We are celebrating Christmas very nice with the whole 20 person astronaut team and I will play something nice on my Mandolin there and 2 men will sing Christmas songs.

Report End. ———————————————————————«

As I finished reading these two texts I saw that Uncle Vily used the older text material to write this novel and he did not write the technical report in his novel.
Maybe he wrote it quite simpler and naturally so that I or other children readers of this first Mars Mission like to read this story because it is not so complicated to understand.

I looked from his table again to the window and some stars stood on the night sky. Maybe one point was our brother Mars. Sure uncle Vily will explain me this today if he will come up to his room this long long Christmas evening.
