246. Bach’s first secret Inspiration in Arnstadt

246. Bach’s first secret Inspiration in Arnstadt

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream and they saw this vision:

* * *

After 5 weeks a young handsome 18 year old man now stepped in this bakery shop beside the church (Today the Johann Sebatian Bach Church) in Arnstadt and wanted to buy some bread. The bakers daughter was 21 year old, 3 years elder then this man.
Although she did not know that he is the famous Johann Sebastian Bach she was nevertheless very lucky smiling and very friendly as she saw him the first time.
»I take this…and….please I take this little bread, and….could I have this nice little fine fresh breads over there….«
»Of course Sir…«, she said very lucky because he was interested in her new Italian creation.
»…Is this a special creation, this fine bread?«
»Oh, yes, it is a special old baker’s creation from Venice…It was invented by the secret love of the famous painter Palma il Giovane, the Master scholar of Master Titian. She played lute like me…her name was Palmina Albina…«
Johann Sebastian stopped moving as he took the fine white fresh bread in his hands and she was also holding also the same piece with her hands and she smiled. Now he looked up to see her face and to see her eyes, so he realized that she
wear a yellow white traditional cloth.
»Oh, you are a musician! You play the lute…?«, he asked.
»Yes, I studied all the old masters from the 16th century till now and I can play the harpsichord. My mother has one at home…and, and, and I sing Soprano very well..«, she said like an innocent little girl although she was 21 years old.
»5 Weeks ago a great musician played on our new organ as opening concert. He
played so wonderfully. I felt in love but I had never seen him again.«
Johann Sebastian Bach smiled and looked for a long while into her direction. Yes, they are completely alone in this moment, in this little fine bakery shop at Arnstadt beside the church where Bach played.
»Can I have a fresh coffee?«, the young famous organ virtuosi said.
»Of course, sir, please, take a seat over there on the little table I will cook for you fresh coffee«.
Johann Sebastian sat down to the table and felt very inspired.
Inside his heart he heart a storm of music and sound. At this moment something changed inside his heart. Till today Bach wanted only to be a famous Violinist, a famous Organist and a famous harpsichord player.
But now he hears music in his heart and now in this moment he would like to compose a little piece for lute maybe a „Praeludium in C-Major“.
Johann Sebastian Bach understood: Palmina did not only do her Job as baker to make traditional bread every day, SHE CREATED A NEW CREATION: The little fine white fresh breads in Venice – which are known also today in the 18th century at Arnstadt.

This is like a musician not only playing music, but is also making own creation as music compositions.

Johann Sebastian Bach is inspired: »I have to create also an own composition like
the creative bakers daughter…«.
During she cooked smiling the coffee and prepared it so nice Bach felt „at home“,
now sitting here. He took a piece of paper and started to write a piece which is known in the future as „Praeludium in C-Major“ of the „Well tempered piano – part I“.
But in its version for lute. (Bach wrote later several versions about this praeludium in the future).
The bakers daughter stopped working as she saw that his handsome man is now writing his first composition in his life. Yes, this moment is the beginning of over thousands of compositions he will write in the future.

246 Praeludium in C BWV 846

picture – manuscript of Bach’s Praeludium in C- Major, BWV 846

The bakers daughter understood and could feel „SHE is the women who made Johann Sebastian a composer“, she is his Saint Cecilia and she is his inspiration.
Now she brought him the fresh coffee in a nice can and smiled as she saw how fast Bach wrote on his music sheet and that he wrote „Praeludium“ and he wrote „Lute“ on it. She got red on her innocent cheeks and she felt now that she is not a little girl any more.
A mystic warm energy came from heart to heart between him and her.

Bach smiled and the bakers daughter smiled.

245. Bach’s first secret love in Arnstadt

245. Bach’s first secret love in Arnstadt

 

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream:

* * *

This year 1581 was a very important year for the life of Palma and Palmina.
It was on the one hand a good year but it was also a year of big decision.

* * *

At the next morning Palma and Palmina read in the newspaper:

»A big burning incident happened in Arnstadt city in Germany. Nearly the whole city was destroyed and burned. Also the Organ was completely destroyed. It will take decades to reconstruct the city and a new organ there…«, Palma said to Palmina.

»Oh, the poor people of Arnstadt…«, Palmina said.
* * *

Suddenly the Peony Gondola showed them a talk between Mozart and his talented piano playing and composing Sister Nannerl:.

»…and this really happpened? Bach was in Venice secretly with his wife and with 2 of his 4 daughters?«

»Yes, Nannerl, I know this from one of his daughters. Our family has a very good friendship to the Bach family. You remember, I learned from a Bach son, they call him the London Bach. And, and,…the daughter of Bach said if we have financial problems we should write them and the Bach daughters will collect money so that they can send money to us to help us…«

»Oh, really,«, Nannerl Mozart said, »they are really good friends, good musician friends…We all love the Bach-family«.

»So a Bach daughter told me this secret story about Bach. – Nannerl, Natschi, Tschini Fibi! – Listen:…«

And Mozart gave Nannerl a tender kiss on her talented hands and on her cheeks and he begun the secret story and it was like that:
* * *

As Bach explained to his daughter Elisabeth that the well-known famous painter Palma il Giovane had his big family flat in the 2nd floor left beside the Astronomic Clock on the San Marco Place, the Bach family all went to have a fine walk along the big promenade along the „Riva degli Schiavoni“ in the south direction.

After a long walk they went in a left street which led them to the »Campo Bandiera e Moro«, a big place.

picture 01 view from the big place at Palmina's bakery shop »Campo Bandiera e Moro« in Venice.png
picture 01 view from the big place at Palmina’s bakery shop »Campo Bandiera e Moro« in Venice

At the »Calle de la pieta« they sat down to a little bakery cafe to have a rest.

Daughter Elisabeth gave the little cage with the yellow canary bird on the table and little ‚Pipsy‘ started suddenly to make: »Peep, peep, peep!«.

»What’s with you, Pipsy, why are you so excited…?«

Bach looked around and looked to the bakery shop, and looked again at the place.

»Anna Magdalena«, which was 15 years younger then his husband Johann Sebastian, felt that something is going on in his heart but she did not ask, maybe he has an inspiration.

„This bakery shop, this big place…this looks also…this remembers me…oh, my old remembering…my first…she was my first….yes, the lute playing bakers daughter…“

Bach seemed to be excited. Never his daughter had seen him so emotionally looking around in his whole live.

picture 02 Venice at Palminas bakery shop.png

picture 02 Venice at Palminas bakery shop

»Daddy, what’s wrong with you…you have been here on that place..? You have remembering…remembering on this bakery shop with a lute playing baker’s daughter…«

Anna Magdalena remembered in this moment that Bach was strongly inspired to compose a lot of Lute music piece and it is e secret why this instrument really inspired him so much.

»Peep, Peep, Peep«, made the little yellow canary bird and Bach understood his beloved yellow canary bird. The bird seems to tell him all his remembering.

»Oh, It is a very emotional remembering.

picture 03 Arnstadt-Schlossmuseum-Baeckerei-mon-plaisir-18-Jhr-1983.jpg

picture 03 Arnstadt-Schlossmuseum-Baeckerei-mon-plaisir-18-Jhr-1983

As I was 18 years old, you know as I was officially playing the first time on the Organ in Arnstadt…hmmmm. I remember very good, this sunny day, it was the…13th of July in the year 1703…what a day…want you really hear this story???

…it was my first love…«

»Oh, Daddy how Romantic, tell us we want to know…Daddy’s first love with 18 years.«

»Peep,peep,peep…«, made Pipsy and jumped excited agreeing in his little wooden cage around.

Anna Magdalena did not know this episode of Bach’s early live. She smiled shy and was interested to hear about that.

picture 04 Bach Praeludium in C-Magior.jpg

picture 04 Bach Praeludium in C-Magior

»Yes, In Arnstadt…yes, she was my first love and she brought me to be a composer. She inspired me to compose the Capriccio, I later dedicated also to to my brother, but it was composed for her and the Preludium in C-major…and piece for Organ ‚Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern‘ – because she was the morning star on my horizon shining for me… and,…ok, I tell you…«

And Bach begun to tell the story, sitting at the Campo Bandiera e Moro in Venice at the baker’s shop at the ‚Calle de la Pieta‘.

For a moment he had tears in his eyes and Anna Magdalena realized it and put his hand on his right arm.

»Yes, but without her I would never decide to be a composer I would never meet your mum later as composer and we would never get married and you, my little daughters would not now be here with us here in Venice…“

* * *

And Bach started to tell the little love-story and it was like that:

picture 05 Arnstadt - Johann Sebastian Bach Church.png

picture 05 Arnstadt – Johann Sebastian Bach Church

On the 13th of July in the year 1703 Bach was invited to test the new Organ in Arnstadt. The Church was full of people and they wanted all to listen how the new organ of Johann Friedrich Wender was sounding.
The people had to wait a long period since the city burned in the year 1581.

The place was full of people. All the people wanted to listen and to see the new organ of the church.

picture 06 left view to the historic bakers shop.png
picture 06 left view to the historic bakers shop

A young bakers daughter from a shop direct on the left side of the entrance came out of her shop as she listened Bach’s organ playing.

She opened her mouth like to hear a miracle.

Yes, she stopped her work in her shop. But she could not see me.

picture 07 Bach-Organ in the Johann Sebastian Bach Church.png
picture 07 Bach-Organ in the Johann Sebastian Bach Church

First she only listened Bach without seeing how he looks like.
A big familiar feeling went through her heart. She was sure she knows him. Yes, he is an old soul and their souls are friends, deep music loving friends.

»Hach, why this talented musician is only testing our new Organ? Why he comes not and played always for us…?«, The mother of the baker’s daughter said.
She heard the organ also playing and stood now beside her daughter.
The baker’s daughter wanted to hide her fascination for Bach’s Organ playing, but mother realized very fast and smiled understanding.

picture 08 Entrance of Bach Church in Arnstadt.png

picture 08 Entrance of Bach Church in Arnstadt

After the concert the people of Arnstadt where fascinated and applaud not only for the quality of the sound of the organ also for the way the compositions Johann Sebastian played.

picture 09 Big place in Arnstadt with Bach Monument.png
picture 09 Big place in Arnstadt with Bach Monument

The people said »We have to ask him to stay in our city to be our Organ playing musician…he is the best musician and best organ expert…«

– »Congratulation, such a good organ and such a good performance…«
»Great, great, we want more concerts from Mr.Bach«

And as Bach left the church he was surrounded by the people of Arnstadt like a shooting star.

picture 10 view on the historic baker's shop in Arnstadt.png

picture 10 view on the historic baker’s shop in Arnstadt

The baker’s daughter wanted to see how Johann Sebastian is looking like, but she could not see him, so much people are outside at the place around the church.

»If he would come in our bakery shop? This amazing Organ playing star?«, the bakers daughter said to her mother and again her mother understood and smiled.

picture 11 young women wearing traditional cloth of the 18th century.jpg

»He played so wonderful the Organ like Apollo. We could even hear his concert outside here on the street.

Whole Arnstadt is celebrating him, it is a big honour to have a concert by Bach here in our little city. If he will stay here and play the Organ every week?

Let us pray that the heaven decides to lead his way to us, mother…«
And again mother smiled silent and understood.

* * *

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and they heart suddenly a music like that:

* * *

»+++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++
THE HIGHEST COURT OF THE REPUBLIC OF VENICE DECIDED TO SET FREE CARDINAL BORROMÄUS, KNOWN AS THE PROTECTOR OF CHILDREN AND SACRED MUSIC. +++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++«

Palmina went this morning along the San Marco Place and bought this fresh printed ‚Worldpress‘ newspaper.

She started reading and said: »Look Palma, they write about you…and,and, the Cardinale will today come to Venice….read, read, looook,look, Palma…“

Palma took the newspaper and read:

»…the highest court announced today that „…it IS NOT A CRIME to help too much poor and ill persons… “ The orders given by Cardinale Hell from the Vatican State to arrest the innocent Cardinal Borromaeus are not accepted by the highest court in order that Cardinale Hell is now declared as officially as criminal.

Cardinale Borromaeus did found a lot of institutions to protect poor children and girls from child prostitution in the tradition to the Saint Nicolaus.

A BIG BRIDGE WILL BE BUILD

Along the new feast there will be a new long bridge only for the duration of the days of the „Il Redentore feast“.
The people can go along the big bridge to go over the water to the „Church il Redentore“.

* * *

After they read the newspaper standing on the San Marco Place a lot of pigeon had landed around them and looked up to them as if they did understand the newspaper.
Now the pigeons flew to the Gondola which was waiting for them at the other end of the San Marco Place.

Both went there and Palmina and Palma entered a Gondola .Palma helped her to enter the Gondola and smiled.

Palmina smiled and said: »Palma, I am so proud on you. Cardinale Borromaeus will visit our „Le Zitelle Orchestra“ on Giudecca and the „Cantico delle Creature“ will be performed, and, and your painting will be presented at the Chiesa Il Redentore.
Oh, Palma, oh, Palma, what a big feast today will be. Oh, I love you, my painter, my composer, my love letter writer, my children protector….“

And Palma and Palmina looked sideways to the island Giudecca and smiled.
Soon the big traditional ‚Il Redentore festival‘ will start here in Venice.

Palmina put her hand on Palma’s hand very tender and Palma could feel it.
Now he looked at her beautiful smiling face. He realised how much he loves her and the sun made her hairs beautiful.

Slowly the Gondola moved to the other side in the direction of Giudecca Island.
They will have a few hours of rehearsal for the concert today at evening.
The innocent girls came all with their music instruments and also the girls and children choir was there.
As they saw Palma and Palmina coming to the Le Zitelle they waved all from their windows.

„Look, Palma and Palmina are coming to make a rehearsal with us. Let us take all our music instruments and come at the concert stage in the garden.

And all the girls and children came in the Le Zitelle Garden to sit at their place on the stage to be ready to make a rehearsal of Palma’s Hymnus.

How often Cardinal Hell tried to pay millions to stop this music-social projects for children. How often he gave a lot of money to people to sabotage this social projects. But now Cardinal Borromaeus is their strong hand of the heaven to stopp this intrigues against these poor children.

And now they made the rehearsal like that:

At he evening the saint Cardinale Borromaeus came and the fireworks in Venice begun and it looked fantastic like that, so that also painters made paintings of this historic moment in modern civilization – to protect children, art and culture.

224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute

224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute

1

And as Palmina heard so directly music from Palma’s heart she realized that she started to dream and Palma put his arm around her during that and she smiled.
Also Palma did. And he could feel her smile at the beginning of this Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock. Palmina smiled very strong, Palma could feel it and smiled also, it was not possible not to smile.
Palma dreamed also, the same dream in this moment, in this Peony Gondola hour at 23′ o clock.
And they continued to dream and they saw this:

* * *

Palma was sitting on his harpsichord and realized, as he finished tuning it, that if he tunes his harpsichord after the Lute of Palmina, in well tempered half tones, it was possible to modulate a music through all half-tones in Magior and Minor.
But Palma tried out to play now and it was possible!
Normally here in Venice, in this 16th century, it was not possible to do so on a harpsichord or an organ – the instruments are tuned to play only in a few scale but not in all 12 semitone scale.
Palma will next week ask an organ-tuner to tune a little organ after Palmina’s semitones.
»Do you think, Palmina, he will tune the Organ like my harpsichord in equal like Well-tempered *) 12 semi-tones like your lute and my mandolin are already tuned?«, Palma asked loud, hoping that she is in the room nearby, listening him and that she will come to him in the big representative room of his flat on the San Marco Place in Venice, in the 2nd floor.

picture - Circle of fifths

picture – circle of fiths needs the „well tempered tunning“ –  the „Well temperament“ *)

»Yes, Palma, Yes…I think he will try it after you have shown him how your harpsichord is tuned…wait, I come…«, Palmina answered from the other room.
And now Palmina came with her lute to make music with Palma.
This moments are the most beautiful moments in Palma’s painting and artis’s live.
Palmina is with him and they are now alone, and they only want to do one thing: To make music, to feel the music-harmonic-connection between their hearts.
Palma played a few notes to test his new „lute-tuning“ of this instrument.
And suddenly he felt inspired with thinking on his pure pigeon, his snow-white saint spirit pigeon, bringing him always to new inspiration for his painting music creativity.
And Palma played and played and he tried out this new „Well tempered -12 semi-tons equal-tuning.“

* * *

As they saw this Peony-Gondola vision Palmina was very proud on her Jacopo Palma il Giovane, her painter, her composer, her love-story writer, her deep and only love.

Again she put her head on his side and continued to hear music and it was like that:

*) Well temperament – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well_temperament

WELL TEMPERAMENT (also good temperament, circular or circulating temperament) is a type of tempered tuning described in 20th-century music theory. The term is modeled on the German word wohltemperiert. This word also appears in the title of

J.S. Bach’s famous composition „Das wohltemperierte Klavier„, The Well-Tempered Clavier.“

„The first circular temperament was described by the organist ARNOLT SCHLICK**) in the early 16th century[citation needed], but „well temperaments“ did not become widely used until the baroque period. They persisted through the classical period, and even survived into the late 19th century in some areas, for example in Italy. [citation needed]
There are many well temperament schemes, some nearer meantone temperament, others nearer equal temperament. Although such tunings have no wolf fifth, keys with many sharps or flats still do not sound very well in tune (due to their thirds). This can contrast chords in which vibrations are concordant with others where the vibrations are not harmonically related. Some theorists [weasel words] have sought to define „well temperament“ more narrowly to exclude fifths wider than pure, which rules out many such schemes.“

**) Arnolt Schlick – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnolt_Schlick
Arnolt Schlick (July 18?  c. 1455–1460 – after 1521) was a German organist, lutenist and composer of the Renaissance. He is grouped among the composers known as the Colorists. He was most probably born in Heidelberg and by 1482 established himself as court organist for the Electorate of the Palatinate. Highly regarded by his superiors and colleagues alike, Schlick played at important historical events, such as the election of Maximilian I as King of the Romans, and was widely sought after as organ consultant throughout his career. The last known references to him are from 1521

The first circular temperament was described by the organist Arnolt Schlick in the early 16th century, but „well temperaments“ did not become widely used until the baroque period. They persisted through the classical period, and even survived into the late 19th century in some areas, for example in Italy.

Although such tunings have no wolf fifth, keys with many sharps or flats still do not sound very well in tune (due to their thirds). This can contrast chords in which vibrations are concordant with others where the vibrations are not harmonically related. Some theorists[weasel words] have sought to define „well temperament“ more narrowly to exclude fifths wider than pure, which rules out many such schemes.
Some well-known well temperaments go by the following names:
Werckmeister temperament (invented by Andreas Werckmeister)
French Temperament Ordinaire
Neidhardt
Kirnberger
Kellner
Vallotti (invented by Francesco Antonio Vallotti)
Young
Some temperament schemes feature numbers of perfect, pure fifths and these give enhanced harmonic resonance to instruments and music on which they are played so that music moves into and out of focus between keys as vibrations lock together or not. Werckmeister features 8 perfect fifths, Kellner 7 and Vallotti 6.
The contemporary composer Douglas Leedy has written several works for harpsichord or organ in which the use of a well temperament is required.[citation needed]

214. The big Inspiration and Bach’s St. Marco Passion

214. The big Inspiration and Bach’s St. Marco Passion

And as they saw this Peony Gondola vision Palmina asked her Palma:“ Palma?“

„Hm?“
„Did you get my Message I send you?“

„Oh no… But deep in my heart I could feel your actual positive thought and saw a big cloud in form of a heart on the sky… But someone erased illegally your message to me….This is a shame…We both have the right to communicate. No one is allowed to erase a message to Jacopo Palma il Giovane!“

„Yes, it is our fundamental rights to communicate! Those who erase our letters want to destroy our deep music friedship…“
Palmina put her head soft and tender on Palma’s side and Palma could feel it. Yes, this night he could feal Palmina’s good thoughts and love and Palma was lucky that Palmina takes care for him, with the help of the Peony Gondola.
And as Palma felt her love they continued to dream the vision and they saw this:

* * *

Bach and his family stood at the famous San Marco Place in the 18 century.
Now they looked at the San Marco Cathedral
and Bach felt the inspiration to write the „Saint Marcus Passion“ and looked at this Cathedral as union of European and Asian architecture art style.

Anna Magdalena and his daughters and Pipsy understood: Bach has now an inspiration and Bach startet to compose in his imagination and Anna Magdalena and Pipsy were able to hear in the same moment the music of the Marcus Passion and it was like that:

»In around 400 years, on the 7th of December of the year 2018 will be a special day: Mars passing the Neptune moon system«

And Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and Palma was lucky.

»2 days ago you played for me on your Pipa. Thank you, Palmina. My heart could feel it. It was a wonderful music. From your heart to my heart. I love you my Inspiration, my Saint Cecilia, my Pipa princess Wang Chao-chun. 王昭君«

»Oh, it is ok. I love you too. Even we can not see us we can think on each other every day, if you also want, Palma… my painter, my composer, my writer, my astronomer. Hm, I think you are a little astronomer….«, Palmina answered smiling.
»Neptune is the planet of music and art…«, Palma kissed Palmina, tender soft and short.

Now the Peony Gondola started to move to a new vision in 400 years:

And they saw at 23 o‘ clock together in their Peony Gondola suddenly the same astronomic event from three cosmic perspectives:

»Look at that three perspectives:…«, Palma il Giovane explained to his beloved Palmina

» 1. View from the moon Phobos¹ of Planet Mars. Phobos is moving within 7,5 hours one time around Planet Mars (3x times a Mars-day or earth day).

2. View from moon Triton of planet Neptune. This moon Triton² has the same size like planet Mars and also a thin atmosphere. (We can say a planet like Mars is moving around Neptune)

3. View from moon Despina of Neptune. Despina is much nearer to Neptune as Triton and is moving around Neptune very fast…«

Palmina put her head and his side and he put his arm around her during this Peony Vision in their Peony Gondola.
And suddenly they heard in their vision a music which was inspired by Palma’s Saint Cecilia and Saint Lucy. Saint Cecilia inspired this composition like a little tweeting yellow canary bird.

Both felt the inspiration:

¹ Phobos – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phobos_(moon)

»Phobos (/ˈfoʊbəs/ FOH-bəs, /-bɒs/ -boss,[4] from Greek Φόβος; systematic designation: Mars I) is the innermost and larger of the two natural satellites of Mars,[5] the other being Deimos. Both moons were discovered in 1877 by American astronomer Asaph Hall.

Phobos is a small, irregularly shaped object with a mean radius of 11 km (7 mi)[1] and is seven times as massive as the outer moon, Deimos. Phobos is named after the Greek god Phobos, a son of Ares (Mars) and Aphrodite (Venus)«

² Triton – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triton_(moon)

»Triton is the largest natural satellite of the planet Neptune, and the first Neptunian moon to be discovered. The discovery was made on October 10, 1846, by English astronomer William Lassell. It is the only large moon in the Solar System with a retrograde orbit, an orbit in the direction opposite to its planet’s rotation.[2][11] At 2,710 kilometres (1,680 mi)[5] in diameter, it is the seventh-largest moon in the Solar System. Because of its retrograde orbit and composition similar to Pluto’s, Triton is thought to have been a dwarf planet captured from the Kuiper belt.[12] It has a surface of mostly frozen nitrogen, a mostly water-ice crust,[13] an icy mantle and a substantial core of rock and metal. The core makes up two-thirds of its total mass. The mean density is 2.061 g/cm3,[5] reflecting a composition of approximately 15–35% water ice.

Triton is one of the few moons in the Solar System known to be geologically active (the others being Jupiter’s Io and Europa, and Saturn’s Enceladus and Titan). As a consequence, its surface is relatively young, with few obvious impact craters. Intricate cryovolcanic and tectonic terrains suggest a complex geological history. Part of its surface has geysers erupting sublimated nitrogen gas, contributing to a tenuous nitrogen atmosphere less than 1/70,000 the pressure of Earth’s atmosphere at sea level.[6] It is the second-largest planetary moon in relation to its primary, after Earth’s moon.«
