     Picture –  Palmina will play Palma’s composition at her concert at the Doge’s Palace.

„Can I have the music score if this Saint of Alexandria Inspiration? Hmm, it is the music to this painting, here in the frari church, isn’t it…“

„Yes,  I will write a copy for you and give it on my working table…“

Palmina smiled very lucky.

And  Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on the right cheek and over his left eye and, yes, Palma could feel it during his dreams and visions and smiled.
And after they saw this Peony Gondola Music Vision they saw this:

   * * *

Palmina did rehearsal today the whole day and could not bring fresh bread in the morning.

So Palma took his way to the backery shop to buy 8 fresh little fine breads.
He smiled as her colleague in the shop said: „Oh, Meastro Palma il Giovane, Singnorina Palmina prepared this little breakfast basked for you. She is doing her reharsal for the big concert in the Doges’s Palace at San Marco Place.

Palma thanked friendly and went now to his painting working place at the chiesa frari, which is a long walk over the Rialto Bridge.
Sometimes, on other days, he mets Palmina playing at the market there,  in front of the little church, at the Rialto bridge, playing her lute and selling fresh breads.
Today she is not there. Palma looked at the 24 h hour clock of the little church.
Palma was looking forward to see her at the concert.
Palma went to the frari church to continue painting the golden light on the huge painting of the saint of Alexandria.

* * *

Later, at the concert Palmina announced suddenly that she will play the Lute solo Nr. 4 about the Image of THUNDER (zhen 卦震)
„Today I will also play a composition THUNDER from the composer Maestro Palma il Giovane.“
Palma was lucky and Palmina played.
The golden light was now in the hall which is also decorated with huge paintings by Palma il Giovane.

The chinese honour guests, also Master Lao from Giudecca island know the meaning of the 8 Image of the I-Ging very well and smiled also nodding.

And now the birth of the melody wich is a symbol of their music love inspiration Palmina played with her lute along the 11 min performance:

And after this Pipa solo Nr. 5 of the „8 Soli for Pipa“ the special guests of the Republic of Venice applauded happy, especially the Chinese people who are living now in the gardens of Giudecca Island.
They will soon invite also to a chinese concert with asian music instruments  at Giudecca and Princess Lin, which Palma painted with all the other princess in white cloth once very beautifully, will play with her students and colleagues.

And they saw all the Landscapes flying over Planet Mars and Palma was also inspired to write remembering about his Uncle. Some Landscapes look like buildings. This they saw in their music Peony Gondola Dream at 23 p.m.
It felt like flying over Mars with the so called »Dragonfly«¹)

_____________
¹) A flying vehicle for 2 persons which was constructed to fly over Planet Mars in a speed of 200 km/h.

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»Can I have the music score of the 5-beat creation, the golden Proportion music (3:2) …?«
»Oh yes, my Pigeon. Here is the music score…«

Palma smiled also.

269. Fly me to Planet Mars

269. Fly me to Planet Mars

As Palma and Palmina saw this Peony Gondola vision Palmina said to Palma:
»You played this Mandolin solo so beautiful for me…
Palma, thank you so much!«

Palma was lucky that Palmina was lucky about this composition.
»You composed it as if it is also dedicated to the saint Virgin isn’t it? Maybe as if it is also dedicated to the saint Lucy or the Saint Virgin Mary, the Guan Yin of the West. It is like an Ave Maria, so beautiful…«

Palma smiled and was lucky that Palmina liked his dedication.

»You should write a version as Ave Maria, Palma, a lot of women will love it to hear it on their most beautiful day in their live: The day of their marriage…«

Palma observed Palmina’s eyes and said:

»Palmina?«
»Hm?«

»I can feel that you have a special wish…Hm?
..Don’t you want me to fly with you to Planet Mars with our Peony Gondola.«

Palmina smiled shy as if she wants to say »YES!« to Palma.

Palma smiled and the Peony Gondola moved up to the stars and flew directly to Planet Mars.

During the soft movement of the Gondola a little prise of wind moved their hairs and they looked wondering around and saw how little our Planet earth looked behind them.

Palmina smiled and said »Woooh. So fast…We are really moving to Planet Mars?«

»Yes, but we are arriving there in a moment where my Uncle is exploring this Planet…«

»Your Uncle on Planet Mars?«

And they looked at the slowly nearer and nearer coming surface of the red orange Planet Mars. Now they are surrounding the Planet along the Equator and they are entering the Mars shadow. For a while it was dark, only the stars shined and now they saw the first sunrise in Rubin-Red colour as a thin red unfinished circle.

Now they flew along the Equator of Planet Mars down to the Planet. Soon a big crater was visible called »Schiaparelli Crater«. Slowly it came nearer and nearer.

»We are flying exactly along the 0° Line of the Equator which is passing the big Schiaparelli Crater«.

And Palmina looked like an innocent Pigeon and opened and closed her eyes several times and she saw that there was also a little crater in the big Crater along the Equator.
As the Peony Gondola came nearer and nearer to the little crater they could see some mountains who are looking like huge ancient buildings of an old historic period.

»Look…«, Palmina said and pointed to a mountain which looked like a special form of an old pyramid or an old Maya temple with their typical high steps.

Palma smiled and put his finger to her mouth tender and made »Sssshh!«; this to show her not to talk to anybody about these secrets.

Palmina smiled and nodded innocently like saying »Ok.«

After they overflew the little crater they entered the big Schiaparelli Crater and a wide landscape opened in front of their eyes.

The Peony Gondola moved now slowly to the right side and flew slowly down to the surface of the Martian Dessert.

»Oh, Palma, look! What is there…? Look, a big silver vehicle is moving down there?«

»Ehm…yes, well… that’s him…«

»Him, you mean inside this moving silver building this is ‚him‘, you mean your Uncle…«

»Yes, Palmina he is inside this silver big bus.«

»Oh, what is a bus?«

»A Bus is a vehicle that can move without horses, like a ship without water, you know…«

»Oh, this is a bus. Fantastic it is moving…«

During the Gondola is coming nearer and nearer Palmina pointed to the silver bus and asked:
»Is he alone here?«

»No he is together with his scientific colleague, a physician. Together they are exploring the Mars. Uncle is watching the stars from his little observatory at the end of the bus and he is in connection with the earth station, and his colleague is collecting and sorting all Mars Material. They are the first men on Mars together with the team of other 18 man who brought them there on Mars«

»20 Man on Mars, all hero…Palma, they do not have any women?«

Palma smiled and answered:

»I will write down the whole story for children ¹)
..so you can read it later…Look there they are looking through a tiny long small window…«

And Palma and Palmina waved to them smiling.

And Uncle Vily said suddenly to his colleague: »Look a Gondola from Venice here on Mars…That’s not possible. Its a dream!«

»Oh, we are dreaming now the same dream – I see also a Gondola 1 Meter over the surface of Mars. And inside a man from the 16th century and a beautiful girl with a white yellow cloth and a lute in her hands – maybe an angel!

Do you think we got to much medicine and this is not real, Vily?«

»No, this is a high dimension encounter. They are travelling through an other time and space dimension! Isn’t that the famous painter Palma il Giovane from Venice?«

»…Than she is maybe his ‚big inspiration‘ send from the heaven from Saint Lucy – Palmina Albina – She inspires him to big artworks and to big music composing…«

»Yes, it might be…oh fine…«

»Oh Palma, they seems to know us. In which century we are now?«

»Psst, a secret – Yes, we did time travel but we are not allowed to change things going on in the future or in the past…
By the way: My painting student Ludevit from Prague is painting the Mars surface very authentic…« and he will write also about by uncle and his friend and colleges…«

* * *

And during they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they heard this music and Palmina put again her head on Palma’s side and Palma kissed Palmina’s head and smiled.

»My Palmina…«, Palma smiled.

»My Palma…«, Palmina smiled.
And the music was like this:

267. Palmina writes an imaginary love letter to Palma during she is arriving in Venice

267. Palmina writes an imaginary love letter to Palma during she is arriving in Venice

picture – morning view at San Marco Place in Venice

After that exiting Peony Gondola Vision they continued to dream and they saw this:
* * *

Palmina is writing a little letter to Palma il Giovane in her little chamber on the ship:

»[Venice, 1582] (Love letter 267)

Dear Palma!

I am now arriving with my ship to Venice in a few minutes.
I can feel that you are waiting for me at the San Marco Place.
Every Minute is like a day, like a week, like a month, like a year.
So now the last 3 waiting minutes will soon be gone and we will see us now in Venice.

I know that this letter is an imaginary letter.
I have no way to send you this message than to give it to you personally. The church of social media does not support our big love story so I send you my message as heart-to-heart message.
A while ago I was connected with you via the golden light. I could feel and see this golden light.

I thank the heaven for this possibility.
I can’t wait to see you again.
What changed in Venice in these nearly 3 years?

On my way back, after the last big concerts there on the east island, I realized the first time how famous Venice is.
All over the world the people know our city and they say to me: „What? You are a musician from Venice? You played there the first lute solist in the Dogan’s Palace? What are you doing in our unknown city, giving there a concert? This is a big honour for us to hear you , you a musician from Venice!“

How often I heart this sentence on my concert tour.
So my father was wrong to tell me that it is a famous thing to do this concert tour.
I had to rehearsal so much – My fingers are still full of pain – I think it was a big intrigue against my talent – A false priest from the cardinal Hell sponsored it maybe, these concerts, only to push me away from Venice for 3 years, to give no concerts at this famous city Venice, so others can play instead of me.

Now I understand this. Palma, but as musician women in the 16th century I had no choice. I am afraid that the people in Venice not even remember me after 3 years being abroad.

Will I have a chance to be again the first soloist in the Dogan’s Palace?

I had really no choice.
Oh, please Palma be not angry with me.
I missed to play your painting presentation concerts all over Venice.

How is the Venice-Titian-School going on?

Are you now a very, very famous painter in Venice, Palma?

I have to ask you so much questions.

Cardinale Cristiano said once in the year 1579 that we both should marry. But, the big concert invitation…, you know.

How is Adriana Fondra doing? How is your cousin Mihaela? Is she singing your compositions? How are the Le Zitelle Girls? Do they have a secure live – They are all very, very beautiful girls! Did you paint them all? Maybe as saint virgins?

Palma, my painter, my composer, my writer:

I hope that we can continue our music art friendship here in Venice, whatever comes.

Your snow white pigeon,
your yellow canary bird,
your saint spirit inspiration,
your Saint Cecilia sent by Saint Lucy to earth to inspire your life.

Your you deeply loving
Palmina Albina«
And during Palmina wrote this, and the ship came nearer and nearer, Palma felt a golden light and he could feel her good thought and smiled.

»Yes, this is my Palmina. She writes an imaginary letter to me and she will give to me the letter personally in a few minutes…«

266. Lao tze saves innocent musicians at HAN-GU-Pass(函谷關 / 函谷关)

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they heard suddenly a soft beautiful female voice crying:

* * *

The female voice cried:

»Father, father! Do not make violence against me!!!!

…No…
Please, do not stroke my body…
…Noooo…
Please do not again such violence.
I am a musician…
Don’t hurt me so much, father, father…
What did I do wrong…?«

But they did not see what happened.

* * *

After that they saw this Vision suddenly they saw this:

* * *

On the sky, at the clouds in white colours Master Lao appeared shining.
Master Lao smiled and beside him was a beautiful intelligent female musician with an Asian music instrument.

A voice said: „I saved her life and she plays the Gin music instrument.
She became my music master student. She will follow my spiritual way in the west with a lot of others to meet the West-Music-Master. So I will send a messenger who will learn his language being able to translate my letter for him, asking him if he can send an official invitation to me and my students and musicians to enter his country and to visit his famous well known philosophical school.“

* * *

Then the Peony Gondola moved to the time of Lao tse and
landed at HAN-GU-Pass (函谷關 / 函谷关).
Now they saw this:

A group of female musicians and female singers gave in the last days beautiful concerts in the kingdom and had a lot of success.
They travelled from town to town after they get an official invitation to play as very famous and fine concert event of the town.

Now the Master of the HAN-GU-Pass (函谷關 / 函谷关) send an official invitation for the artists to play in their famous representative palais of the town.

Master Lao was also on his way and was also invited to this concert.

Full of expectation he comes there and wanted to send his new letter from there to the famous founder of his philosophical music school in far, far WEST.
Here he can stay a while till the answer from his old, old friend will come back to this west-china border station of the HAN-GU-Pass.

But a religious extremist group, spying all over the country found out that Master Lao will attend the concert at the famous palais at HAN-GU-Pass and they tried to plan an evil strategy against the meeting of the famous musicians and Master Lao.

* * *

In a secret meeting those members of an illegal religious extremist group meet and talked like that:

»…we can make intrigues against this concert. We have only to give orders to arrest them as criminals even they are innocent. We can use the laws for this…«

»Ai ya, good idea, I am working at the government as high office person and can use my mighty position to cancel the musicians from the program…Is the program printed yet?…«

»Oh, yes the concert invitation was sent all over the region in all parts along the kingdom. All will expect that Xie Ming will play the solo part in the concert.
We have to arrest them all and give orders to…
…and our religion will be expanded also in this culture here…60% of our religious members have high positions in the government. So we will soon influence all others – Ha,ha,ha.
Oh, our religious founder is great…«

»..Yes, our religious founder, he is great….«

»…great…«, all members said.

* * *

Lao tze was on his way to the Palais and made small eyes to see the group of musicians which seems to come in colourful beautiful traditional Asian cloth.

But what is happening to the musicians?
He saw that they are arrested by the police. But why?

Palma could feel the music Palmina played on her Lute for him.

Palma smiled. He heard her playing in his inner heart.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina asked: „What did you do after I played this Melody? Hmm Palma?“

Palma looked shy and answered: “ I…I…I heard that you played an other Melody after you Played our ‚I miss you melody…and then…“

Palma was shy.
Palmina smiled and asked:“ Hmmm? What did you do in our Peony Gondola hour after I played the melody….Hmmmm?“

„Later, I went to the San Marco Place…“, Palma said and they continued to see their Peony Gondola dream and they saw this:

* * *

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade

Palma went in the direction of the San Marco Place, but he has to turn left and go then a while a short way along the big Promenade ‚Riva di Siavoni‘ till he arrived on San Marco Place.

03 San Marco Cathedral

03 San Marco Cathedral

He went a few time along the San Marco Place to see the two Pigeons.

04 Dogans Palace on San Marco Place

But now he felt that Palmina’s ship is coming.

05 view to the water side on San Marco Place

He went back to the water side of the San Marco Place to look if Palmina’s Ship is visible.

06 - left column at the San Marco Place

The moon made a bright light over Venice and the stars shined friendly.
The lagoon water was calm and the reflection of the moon and the stars looked peacefully.

07 view over the Lagoon in the east direction
07 view over the Lagoon in the east direction

* * *

Palmina went up to see the calm sea on her ship, to fell the soft wind in her beautiful hairs, to see Venice slowly coming.
She played very beautiful on her lute and smiled.

08 first colours bevor the sun rise
08 first colors on the south east horizon before the sun rise

Slowly the horizon turned brighter and in a while the sun will rise over the sea.

Normally the ships coming from outside had to wait up to 40 days in the 16th century till they where allowed to enter the lagoon water of Venice.

But Palma il Giovane could arrange it that the ship which was on his way to Venice could pass without any waiting.
Maybe the Republic of Venice knows also who Palmina’s relatives were and the ship and its passengers were threat as V.I.P.s.

The officers looked surprised as the ship passed the control-harbour near todays „Lido“

„Oh, Look a princess is lute playing… This is the V.I.P. ship we should allow passing and entering the waters of Venice“ –

„How beautiful she plays…“

The Officers looked wondering and looked behind the slowly moving ship.

* * *

Palma standing on the San Marco Place looked expecting in the East direction and played on his Mandolin.

Palmina played coming with her ship – Palma played waiting with his Mandolin – and the are now coming closer and closer – in their hearts there is no physical distance

09 Piazza San Marco at sunrise Venice

Slowly, far on the east-south horizon the sun raised bright and the ship of Palmina was visible.

A few birds flew at the morning sky.

In a few minutes the ship will stand directly on the left side of the left column at the San Marco Place.
Palma smiled and played his Mandolin.

* * *

As they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Pipa Lute and Palma took his Viola da braccio.

„Let us play our ‚8 Soli for Pipa and Viola'“, Palmina said innocently.

263. Remembering the »I miss you melody«

263. Remembering the »I miss you melody«

And as they moved under the stars of Venice with their Peony Gondola Palma said to Palmina: »Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»Did you remember the time I missed you so much as you lived on that far east island and made your concert tours?«

»Yes, Palma, yes. I could feel that you stood under my little window in the „Calle de la pieta“ and played the „I miss you melody“ as Mandolin solo…«

Now they saw this remembering Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Palma finished today at the early evening his painting work at the Palazzo Vendramin. Palma painted Palmina secretly in a painting and he wanted to look if there are any new news by her Pigeon from that east island concert tour.

Palmina send today a new letter to Palma but the administrators of the Church of Social Media and its „privacy criminals“ read the letter and erased it.

Palma felt this but he transformed his feelings into creative music.
As he arrived in the little street – the „Calle de la pieta“ where Palmina’s little room was in the house of her family, the baker’s shop on the „Campo Bandiera e Moro“ – he put his painting utensils on the floor and took his little Mandolin, looked up to her open window and played for her, although he knows that at this moment she was not back from her concert tour, but maybe the ship arrived earlier, in this case she would hear his music.

And Palma played like that:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeM3qMrz0nT2h8FYPG5zEMQ

* * *

In this moment Palmina felt his music and smiled and she could hear the sound of this music in her inner heart.

She opened her eyes and looked through her little window on the ship which will arrive in a few hours at Venice.

She looked at the bright shining stars and the reflection of the friendly looking moon on the water of the silent sea around Venice and it seemed to shine brighter.

»Yes, now Palma thinks about me and he plays our „I miss you melody“«, Palmina smiled thinking on her Palma il Giovane.

Palmina took her little but heavy Pipa-lute and plugged very, very soft also this melody at this 23 o’clock-hour.

Now the stars seemed to shine more brighter and there was visible a shooting star.

Palmina smiled and did a secret wish closing her eyes.

* * *

In this moment Palma could feel this secret music moment and looked also up to the stars over Venice.

He saw two white Pigeons flying in the direction to the San Marco Cathedral.

They flew exactly along the line which the „Calle de la Pieta“ is pointing: In the direction to the San Marco Place, where the San Marco Cathedral is.

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream like that:

„Palma?“
„Hmm?“
„I do rehearsal so much so my fingers have pain…“

Palma smiled, looked into her beautiful eyes and after a while he took her talented hands and kissed them soft and tender.

After that vision they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Today Palma always looked at the sky and he saw a beautiful cloud heart like that:

  picture 1 – cloud heart at the skydav

„This is a heart from my Pigeon…She thinks on me…“, Palma thought and he looked to the sky.

* * *

Two weeks later.

„Our ship is going the right course. In a few days we are there…“, the Capitain of the Sailing ship said to Palma il Giovane.
A soft wind was now in their face and hairs.
Palma smiled.
Palmina smiled as he saw again a heart on the sky like that:

* * *

During Palmina made again rehearsal in her room over the big Place, in Pafos on Cyrus Island she heard suddenly music down at the ancient place.
As Palmina heard the music she felt no paint on her finger.
This time Palmina is doing rehearsal very much on her Lute and  this makes her finger pain a little bit.
But after Palma’s music inspiration for Pianosolo she felt healthy. (Palmina likes to hear this music via the Peony Gondola)

* * *

Today it was again a sunny day, Palmina heard a music outside.
A good girls choir is doing rehearsal down at the big ancient place.

And now they started to make music with all their instruments.

„Oh…this is…“, Palmina said surprised.

She looked out of her window to see the musicians.
She smiled and saw: This is Palma!
My Palma il Giovane is playing the Mandolin! Oh, he playes our secret deep love melody…‘, Palmina said and listened also to the music a while.
„…oh he brought the most famous Singer of Armenia….
What a honour for our small island!
Yes, here on Cyprus Island my mother-side-relative Catharina Cornaio was the last Queen of Zyprus Island in the 15th century and she was also the Queen of Armenia…and  a Byzantine Princess. She was also a honour citizen of the Republic of Venice….“
Palmina smiled and had tears in her eyes.
„Yes, this is my Palma. He comes with the famous Venetian Eurasian Ensemble from Venice  to make a performance for me on that beautiful place here in our city Pafos.
Oh, Signora Ming from the Ming dynasty, living now also at Giudecca Island with her family,  playes the Pipa part…“
This chinese family came once officially protected by the Republic of Venice, from that Pacific Island to move to Venice.
Now Palmina took her own Pipa Lute and started to play the secret love melody together with the performance down at the big place where hundreds of people and children were standing to listen this little open air concert.

All the members of this Venice Titian Art Gallery music ensemble played with all their heart and the people could feel it.
Maybe also because Palmina played in this  moment from her window with her lute happy smiling with them. Palmina’s innocent cheeks turned colourful light-red.
„Oh, my Palma, my composer, my painter, my writer…he took all this long way from Venice with a ship to make a concert for me, to express his sympathy and love to me…Oh, Palma… Oh, my Palma!“, Palmina thought during she played and she made a deep sigh.

And the music she heard was like that:

* * *

After they saw the Peony Gondola Vision they looked out of their Peony Gondola over the colorful  horizon with a beautiful evening sunset at the longest day in the year.

Palmina smiled and she put her head on Palmas side. Palma put his arm around her and kissd her on her head tender

256. Organ under construction

256. Organ under construction

As Palmina dreamed this music she tried to contact Palma via the Peony Gondola.

* * *

Palma could feel her positive thoughts and she hold his right hand and Palma could feel it. At 23 o’clock at this day he smiled and Palmina thought also on her composer, her painter and writer.

Now both smiled and started to dream this Peony Gondola Vision and they saw  this:

* * *

Palmina was suddenly 121 years in the future in Arnstadt. She was in the church beside the place at the bakers shop. She wanted to pray a little bit and suddenly she saw how the workers are constructing the new organ in Arnstadt. They lifted a big Organ pipe up to the Organ Gallery.  Palmina opened her mouth and was surprised about the big size of this Prospect Organ Pipe.

She looked up to the organ gallery and it was like that:

Palmina made a long sigh and thought: „Who will once play this huge music instrument. Our Organ of Arnstadt?
Who will be the man? Will he have big hands and big feets? Will he be only a instrumentalist or will he be also a composer?“
Palmina was thinking and continued to ask herself:“Will he compose something for my lute? Will he compose a Capriccio for my harpsicord and for my lute? Will I inspire him to compose..? Maybe he feels inspired to compose a Preludium and an additional Violinpart which can be sung by my Sopran voice?… Maybe he will compose the world’s famous Ave Maria in history?
Oh I can feel that there are creative moments coming with this new Organ…Oh I pray for best and creative moments… and even I can inspire him as little yellow canary bird I would sing for him“.

Palmina looked back again up to the organ gallery and smiled.

Now she went back to her home and started to rehearsal on her lute and her harpsichord. Later through her open window the people of Arnstadt could hear a beautiful Sopran voice singing some sweet little songs.

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

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

»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.

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.

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.

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.

»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:
