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.

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:

Cardinale Borromaeus did found a lot of institutions to protect poor children and girls from child prostitution in the tradition to the Saint Nicolaus.
Today he will visit the „Le Zitelle“-institution on Giudecca island and the girls orchestra will play Welcome concert in their church and in their beautiful gardens behind the buildings of the „Santa Maria de la Presentatione“.

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:

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

picture 1 -Orazio_Gentileschi_-_Saint_Cecilia_Playing_the_Spinnet.png
picture 1 -Orazio_Gentileschi_-_Saint_Cecilia_Playing_the_Spinnet

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:

* * *

The next day Palmina had always to think about Palma’s Piano solo he composed for his beloved Palmina, his inspiration, his Saint Cecilia.

Today she had two talented music students at the Gardens of Giudecca.
The mother of the talented girls is also playing a music instrument and it is very creative to teach them music lessons.

As Palmina went back along the Giudecca island to the »Le Zitelle« she teaches also the girls there in music.

Now she has a little break between her music lessons.
Sitting in her official flat in the 3rd floor of the »Le Zitelle« building she is thinking on her Palma, which has today birthday and she sat down on her little table at the window and started to write a Pigeon-letter mail to her Palma il Giovane who lives on the other side of the Lagoon water on the San Marco Place.
From her window she can see directly to the San Marco Place and she smiled.

She looked to the cage of the Letter-Pigeon and smiled to her.

»After my music lessons here, I will go to Palma and celebrate with him his birthday in our Peony Gondola. But first I will send him a Pigeon-letter mail to wish him happy birthday…«, Palmina thought lucky and smiling.

* * *

Palma felt in this moment that she is writing a letter to her and he stopped for a while his painting work at the famous palazzo in Venice.
In his thoughts he could feel, no he could see her sitting beautifully on her table writing a Pigeon-Letter Mail for him.

In his imagination it looks so beautiful and poetic how his sweet Palmina is thinking and writing for him.
Palma cleaned fast his fingers, full of wet colours and took a sheet of paper and a pencil to draw how he feels and sees Palmina in his deep heart Vision.

Palma made a very fast drawing.

picure 4 - drawing by Palma il Giovane

picture – drawing by Palma il Giovane

Yes, Palma is the INVENTOR OF THE DRAWING AS INDEPENDENT ART DISCIPLINE.
Before Palma there was only the tradition that a pencil drawing is only the draft of an oil painting and the drawing has no meaning for art.
Palma was famous for doing fast and very often own drawings and these drawings had been the first time in the history of art defined as a complete independent art discipline.

Palma send her an imaginary cheek kiss and Palmina smiled in this moment and kissed the letter she wrote:

„Venice, Giudecca-Island 16….

My beloved Palma!

Today on your BIRTHDAY, I write you a little Pigeon-Letter-Mail.
I am so lucky that we can see us now every day and I am now a part of your life.
The Pigeon will fly from here at the »Le Zitelle« over the Lagoon water directly to your window at the 2nd floor at the San Marco Place. And no one will destroy the letter. No one will steal the letter. No one will destroy our deep love and our deep music art friendship.
I know that I am inspiring you and that you are always lucky to be creative in painting, composing and writing in order to these inspirations.
Last time we met in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock you composed from your heart a music piece I loved so much – The Piano solo –

Palma, thank you!
My composer, my painter and writer…

I would like to tell you that I am planing to play several compositions from you in my little fine concerts.
Today we can speak about this in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock celebrating your birthday.

Dear Palma, I am so looking forward to see you!

Happy birthday, dear Palma!

Your you deeply loving

Palmina, your Pigeon, your Saint Cecilia“

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Lute and played for him being with him in this beautiful Peony Gondola.

And suddenly a text appeared written in an old Chinese language like this on the evening sky.

說萬物者莫說乎澤,*)

„Of all that forces that GIVE JOY things, there is no more gladdening than the LAKE ☱.“

And then Palma took his Viola music instrument and Palmina took her Pipa Lute and they made together music at their Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock like this about the image of „LAKE, the joyous“ :

223. Traditional Dialogue of Cultures in Venice

picture – Palma il Giovane -Doge Pietro Loredan*) Beseeching the Virgin (Wikipedia)

This Painting by Palma il Giovane is on the big famous Dogan“s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) where always delegations of different cultures officially had a intercultural friendship event as peace DIALOGUE between the mighty Republic of Venice and the business partners from all over the world like Europe, Asia and Africa.

* * *

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision like that:

* * *

„Oh, so much Cultures we have on this world. Fantastic!!!!l „, Palmina said like a young girl with her soft fine voice and continued smiling with this asian-like beautiful eyes:

„…this beautiful different cultures with their different music and art traditions,… fantastic…
our world is so big, I would like to huge it ..“, Palmina said and hugged Palma.

„..this beautiful cultures are often visiting Venice, our mighty Republic of Venice the – R.O.V. and I often play at the welcome concert in the Dogan’s Palace on our San Marco Place…often an artwork from you or from me…“, Palmina said euphoric.

„…From all over the world the representative of their culture are coming and greeting our Republic from Europe Asia, Africa. From Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, Cipan (Japan), Korea, Philippines, Russia…Armenia, Cyprus- Byzantium…bringing a message to us of peace and friendship…They want all a peacefull relation, a cultural dialogue to our mighty Republic of Venice and of course good economic relations with us Europeans…“, Palma said very wise.

picture 02 detail

picture 03

picture 2-3 – detail of Palmas painting in the Palazzo Ducale (Dogan’s Palace) in Venice

„So it is important that all cultures are in a harmonic peaceful relation…in a good DIALOGUE!
…Palma, didn’t you compose a music dialogue for Chinese lute Pipa (or other Chinese or other Asian Instruments) and Viola da braccio as the Chinese delegation did visit our Republic with their huge Chinese ships, waiting outside the „Lido“, coming with hundreds of guests to bring a peaceful culture program, a cultural exchange dialogue concert? Didn’t you?“

„Oh yes, I will never forget this. It was years ago…Oh, Palmina, my Dialogue for Pipa琵琶 and Viola. Do you remember the begining melody?“, Palma asked.

Palmina took her Lute and plugged slowly and smiling with shining eyes, only a girl or a women has, if she is loving…

G-d-e-a

Palmina smiled to Palma and send to his heart a warm and golden, tender light energy playing her lute.

Palma could feel this also in his deep heart.

After that,now Palma took his Viola and plugged:

c-g-d‘-a‘

„Do you remember, Palmina?“

„Yes, your composition you wrote as Dialogue for my instrument and your instrument…It was dedicated as dialogue between the East Cultures and the West Cultures between the Ming Dynasty representatives and Venice.
Yes, Palma, I remember very good and I love this creation from you very much!“

picture 04

picture – (detail) Palma paints his own flat in the 2nd floor on the San Marco Place as autobiographic link

Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on his cheek and Palma could feel this.

Now Palma composed deep in his heart a music reflection and variation to the main „Dialogue Music Theme“, the main melody of this dialogue composition like that and Palmina put her head and Palma’s side to hear this music coming directly from Palma’s heart and what she listened was this:

*) Pietro Loredan

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pietro_Loredan_(doge)

Pietro Loredan (born Venice, Italy 1482 – died Venice, 3 May 1570) was the 84th Doge of Venice. He reigned from 1567 to 1570.

picture 1 – Presentation of Jesus in Temple« by Palma il Giovane (Isola Giorgia Maggiore, Venice)

The Gondolier was waiting for them with the beautiful shining lanterns in the Gondola. He will bring them later, after the walk on this Isola Giorgio Maggiore, to Giudecca Island at the Le Zitelle where Palmina has her 2nd flat and is protected by the Jesuits from her violent father and violent brother.
Other girls at the Le Zitelle have also problems with their fathers and brothers. They are reading their private messages and letters, erasing them and changing their content to isolate them from others. That’s why the girls are living here on Gudecca Island at the Jesuits.
The local authorities do not allow this and have strict laws against this and that’s why some fathers or brothers had been arrested for doing this to their relatives; arrested by the Republic of Venice – the R.O.V. – the mightiest Republic in the 16th century.

Now, not even the Gondolier could see what Palma and Palmina are doing at the secret gardens of Giorgio Maggiore, here where so much famous painters had deep inspirations (Claude Monet, 200 years later, had also big inspirations here on Giorgio Maggiore and painted a lot of paintings here and he painted also this little island).

After a while of silence Palmina asked whispering:
»Palma?«
»Yes, my Music-Angel?«
»You would really paint a white pure Pigeon in your big painting for this Church when it is ready build in a few years¹, as remembering to our spiritual walks and travels with the Gondola in Venice?«


¹ the church was finished in the year 1610 – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Giorgio_Maggiore_(church),_Venice

»San Giorgio Maggiore is a 16th-century Benedictine church on the island of the same name in Venice, northern Italy, designed by Andrea Palladio, and built between 1566 and 1610. The church is a basilica in the classical renaissance style and its brilliant white marble gleams above the blue water of the lagoon opposite the Piazzetta and forms the focal point of the view from every part of the Riva degli Schiavoni.«


»Yes, Palmina, and if we see us again in 400 years we will stand here in front of this painting and we can say this white pigeon I painted to remember our deep spiritual love.«

And they saw now in this Peony-Vision all the paintings which will be painted for this church San Giorgio Maggiore.*)


*) beside the painting »Circumcision/Presentation of Jesus in Temple« – by Palma il Giovane
There are other paintings in the monastery building:
The Last Supper by Jacopo Tintoretto
The Fall of Manna by Jacopo Tintoretto
Entombment of Christ by Jacopo Tintoretto
Madonna enthroned with Saints by Sebastiano Ricci
Risen Christ & St Andrew with Morosini family by Jacopo & Domenico Tintoretto
Adoration of the Shepherds by Jacopo Bassano


They saw the painting of Sebastiano Ricci and Tintoretto and also about Santa Lucia

picture 3 - painting of »Santa Lucia« by Palma il Giovanne

And they saw also that Sebastiano Ricci (he was later born then Palma) will dedicate the angel with mandolin to the secret deep love to Palma and Palmina.

picture 6 – painting «Venus and Cupido« by Sebastiano Ricci inspired by the love of Palma and Palmina, symbolised as 2 white pigeons

The saw in their Peony-Vision that Sebastiano Ricci will also be inspired by this future- painting of Palma il Giovane with the 2 white pigeons on the right side (the 2nd pigeon is in the basked) – he studied it very intensive – and painted also two white Pigons in his famous »Venus and Cupido«


¹ Sebastiano Ricci (1659 – 1734) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebastiano_Ricci

»Sebastiano Ricci (1 August 1659 – 15 May 1734) was an Italian painter of the late Baroque school of VENICE. About the same age as Piazzetta, and an elder contemporary of Tiepolo, he represents a late version of the vigorous and luminous Cortonesque style of grand manner fresco painting. «


»But it is not easy for a man to be in love with Saint Cecilia…«, Palmina said innocent but very direct.

»Why, Palmina?«, Palma asked like a wise man.

»Saint Cecilia was a saint and a virgin and she wanted to keep her virginity and she wanted only to have a spiritual love relation so it was difficult for a man to marry Saint Cecillia…«

»…Hmm…, but a spiritual love…. if it is really a high dimension love, then it is like two pigeons are marring from heart to heart. They need only the spiritual arrangement of the heaven, nothing else…and this the two pigeons can feel deep inside their hearts«

»I know, Palma, this I mean with ‚It is difficult for a man to be in love with a saint virgin‘. But you, Palma, you are different. You understand the principles of a deep spiritual love. As artists we can live this spiritual love as real and the results of our deep love are great artworks and great thoughts for the culture and history – We will inspire the next generations of artists. Our children are our artworks.«

Palmina and Palma hugged standing in the secret gardens of »Giorgio Maggiore« where no one is watching then; only the planets and stars, the angels and the saint of the heaven can see them; and they smiled down to them, down to planet earth, down to Venice, down to the little small island Isola San Giorgio Maggiore, called in Venetian language »San Zorzi Mazor«.

»My Pigeon…«
»My Palma…«

»My Inspiration…«
»My composer…«

»My composing lute playing angel«
»My secret writer…«

»My yellow canary bird…- Let us work together in the next centuries – if the heaven is allowing this to us – Let’s make this wish«

»My astronomer – Yes, let us work together – Let us make this wish – Dreams come sometimes through – All we do in our artworks will be connected through our Peony Gondola, Yes, Palma – Yes Palma, – I love you and I feel it: you respect how Saint Cecilia is…«

»Yes, Palmina, I respect you…«

And in a common Vision they saw the big painting Palma il Giovane should paint for this church on that small island.

EPSON DSC picture

picture 7 – »Presentation of Jesus in Temple« by Palma il Giovane (Isola Giorgio Maggiore, Venice )

Palma hold her head with his strong hands, but tender, and kissed her and her beautiful lips, very soft and slow and short.
But in their heart the kiss started also, they could feel it, and this beautiful feeling they kept in their heart, even after the short tender kiss.
And this feeling stayed for day and night.
Both looked at the Vision of the painting and they saw that Palma should paint the Pigeon held by a women and the Pigeon seemed to smile with its eyes. And an other Pigeon in the basked

picture 9 – white Pigeon (detail) by Palma il Giovane

After this beautiful inspiration Palma and Palmina went long along the green gardens and sometimes they heart an bird or a cicada or a tiny little mouse moving.

It was a beautiful »inspiration-walk« here on that island. All the monks are now sleeping in their monastery and there was no light in their windows any more. It was now very late and they went back to the Gondola with the shining lantern where the Gondolier was respectfully waiting.

Now the Gondola moved very slow to the neighbour island Giudecca where after a few meters the »Le Zitelle« Building was. Palma brought Palmina up to her flat in the 3rd floor and she played again on her lute for him and on her harpsichord like the Saint Cecilia. Palma made again some paintings of her and continued to paint on the white pigeon.

Later he asked her:
»Do you like the white Pigeon? Should I paint her like that in the future painting?…I will also paint a second Pigeon in a basked on that painting. The two Pigeons are we…The basked represents the Peony Gondala«

Palmina smiled and was lucky to feel connected with Palma’s heart.

Palmina sat on her little bed looking through her window to the San Marco Place, which is far a way but some lanterns are shining also in the night there.
Palma sat also on her bed. Palmina took Palma’s right hand and both looked long through the window.
Palma remembered her words about the virginity of Saint Cecilia and respected her.
»Do you know the love relation and legend between the unicorn and the virgin, Palma…?«

Palma smiled and looked to her side and he put his arm around Palmina.

Now they are sitting and Palmina’s little small bed, looking in the direction of San Marco Place at the Dogan’s Palace where still hundreds of candles are shining through the windows.
Yes, now they are sitting holding their hands like two little children who became deeply loving friends.

»Oh…why that? …this is also a symbol of something real of our century…hmm, isn’t it, Palma? You always painted something from the present in your images…«

And they continued to see their Peony Gondola Visions:

»Vienna, 15…

Dear Palma!
We arrived now Vienna, the world city of music and culture!
How beautiful it is there!
It is a complete other world than on my island.
On Giudecca-Island in Venice there I love to live there and in Venice, but Vienna is also beautiful!
The travel from Venice to Vienna was hard.
I am not used to travel with a coach, I prefer to move with Gondolas.
(It is more soft and harmonic to move with a Gondola)

And I miss you sitting together with you in our Gondola.
But today at 23 o’clock we will meet each other and I give you this letter because it is faster to send a letter via the Peony Gondola.

And something special happened today, listen Palma:

There was a false Body-guard ho tried to pay 2000 Swiss Franken to the president of the society which is organising our concert in Vienna against international-child-prostitution.
But the President, he is not from Austria, is strong and made a criminal report to the local authorities.
The secret service of our Republic of Venice found out that this false body guard tried to steal the identity of a real body guard and he wanted to sell dark sugar to the girls of our little fine Le Zitelle Chamber Orchestra.
The police came an arrested him and all girls were happy because this body guard started to touch the girl in an un-fine and respect-less way and the girls were afraid from him because his father is a rich man, a big member of the dark sugar network administrators who steals the letters of girls and also from us.

As protest against the sabotage of our little concert in Vienna the president announced to organize a BIG CONCERT with philharmonic musicians with your »Cantico delle Creature« in a Franciscan church in Venice. It could happen that in Venice in the church chiesa dei »Frari« where the big painting of Master Titian »Assunta Maria« is and where your famous and large painting of the Saint Catarina is.
Wooo, I am so looking forward to this concert in Venice, I hope I can play your 8 Lute Soli which you dedicated to me in your »Cantico delle Creature«.

It will be a big manifest against international child prostitution! The European and Asian musicians of our Island are standing behind you, Palma!

Today we will have our first concert here in Vienna,

Looking forward to see you again on our Peony-Gondola at 23 o’clock…

with much love

your Pigeon, your inspiration,
your little canary bird,
your angel
your Saint Cecilia,
your little Pipa Princess Wang Chun Chao
your Y…ou loving Palmina«

                    * * *

Palma smiled as Palmina finished reading her short letter to Palma from Vienna.

He put his strong arm around Palmina and she gave her head on his side.

»Thank you, Palmina. Such a nice letter.
And such nice news. The false body guard is arrested…«

»…How was my day today:
Here is my letter to you, today I wrote for you:
Venice, 15…

Dear Palmina!

Today I had my teaching lessons in the gardens of the Chinese Ming-Dinasty family on Giudecca-Island.
They learn to draw and paint in European tradition. Also they are learning European music instruments, and they are very talented. Two Asian women I started to paint as Saint Women. Later I will show you the paintings. They explain me the Asian music instruments and I like the Asian music also. My painting students came also to the lesson there in the gardens.
The Asian musicians want to found a Dao-Ying-Yang-Chinese-Garden-Orchestra combined with European musicians and they are asking me to compose an Eurasian-Artwork in music like I painted the Asian women a little bit Eurasian in my paintings. You remember my painting of princess Lin…?

Today we see us in the Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock.

Your, You deeply loving
Jacopo Palma il Giovane«

»Oh, great Palma!
I have so much remembering on the »Creative Music Afternoons« at Giudecca-Island with you and your mother teaching the poor little children without parents music and the »Cantico delle Creature«.
I am so proud of you, Palma!«, Palmina said and gave Palma a tender cheek kiss on his right cheek and smiled very friendly.

»Yes, I remember the concert in late spring of the year 1594 at the Le Zitelle.
The Le Zitelle Institution at the Jesuits on Guidecca was sponsored by the famous family Loredan ¹«

»Chiesa collegata al pio luogo delle Zitelle, fondato a metà del 1500, destinato all’educazione di giovani donne povere ma molto belle per le quali la propria avvenenza poteva essere motivo di perdizione e di avvio prostituzione.«

»Le Zitelle (officially Santa Maria della Presentazione) is a church in Venice, Italy. It is part of a former complex which gave shelter to young maidens („zitelle“ in Italian) who had no dowry, and is located in the easternmost part of the Giudecca island. « – wilipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Zitelle


»I remember all the girls and musicians….

There was little Irena – she learned to play the Viola by me like little Petra – and it was Irena’s inspiration to play the A-Sting and the D-String on the Viola during the »sora aqua« part of my Cantico delle Creature.
We had then the idea to let all little children play on their children-Violins (my mother organized the little-children violins for the children) only on the A-String and the D-String.

»Yes, it was a very creative afternoon at this year. We played also the beginning of the Cantico with the »ad te solo-Melody«. Yes and the very little children clapped with their hands around going in the circle and Mrs. Petja from Bulgaria helped them. She was a painting student of mine in the Titian-Art-School and painted Jesus very well. I asked her to support the La-Zitelle music-social projects because the children are poor and needy.

»Yes, she did her job very well.«, Palmina said

»And I remember Mrs. Elisabetha, also a Le Zitelle Girl….«, Palmina exited said.

Yes, she was forced by her sever father to sing in restaurants and to stay with old man in a room alone. The man wear false priest cloths to hide his identity. As Elizabetha run away, and as she escaped from her sever father, who always beat her with violence and tried to give her dark sugar, she took a Gondola to Giudecca Island at the Jesuits and asked if she can stay at the Le Zitelle for the next years not to be a child-prostitute.
Therefore she got a singer and music education and was soon a member of the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery and could also support music-projects with her voice.

»Yes, she sung with the little girls at this Creative Music afternoon your Cantico and the »Kyrie« of your »Prager Messe«. Cardinale Carolus Boromaeo liked this music so much as he visited Venice once and held his sever speech against international child-prostitution.«

»…and I remember the girls, Manuela, who learn so good to play the Lute – my best lute – student!«, Palmina said proud.

»…Yes she is a good musician, but she also learned very good to play the Violin, and the harpsichord. I think she liked you Palma. Women can feel this…«, Palma added

»…also little Sonja, she sung very good in our children-choir and little Petra, but she was tall grown…She learned Viola da braccio from me…and little Nino – he learned Violin…So much children grew up there and also the children without parents – the Le Zitelle institution sponsored also creative music-social projects for children without parents²…«


² an institution like a modern children-village


And the Peony Gondola showed them the remembering-visions of the year 1594 at Venice.

»The children look all so happy to do this CREATIVE MUSIC AFTERNOON…«, Palmina said and hugged Palma with her left hand and Palma could feel her and was happy.

»…no wonder that the criminal organisation of the »Church of Secure Crime – CSC« or and its children-prostitution networks form the dark sugar network administrators wanted to pay over 25.000 International Dollars to destroy this Institutions with lies and intrigues and tried to sabotage of their concerts in Vienna. «, Palma said.

»I am so proud of you Palma for composing this Cantico delle Creature for children.«

And Palmina put her soft hand tender on Palma’s left hand, smiled and looked Palma into his eyes.
Palmina said »Pi-«
Palma answered »-Pa«
Now both said »Liu – to – kiss!« and kissed soft and tender on their lips and closed their eyes.
And as they did so they saw a Peony-Vision of a CREATIVE-MUSIC-AFTERNOON with children at the children Village at Vienna in exactly 400 years in the future and they say this little Peony-Vision of the »Cantico delle Creature« for Children and they saw this:

Fondamenta Zitelle, Giudecca

Chiesa di Santa Maria della Presentazione “Le Zitelle”

 

»Realizzata su progetto di Andrea Palladio, gode di una delle più belle e privilegiate viste su Piazza San Marco.

Chiesa collegata al pio luogo delle Zitelle, fondato a metà del 1500, destinato all’educazione di giovani donne povere ma molto belle per le quali la propria avvenenza poteva essere motivo di perdizione e di avvio prostituzione.

Le prime quaranta “zitelle” si stabilirono nell’isola della Giudecca (nel palazzo appartenuto alla famiglia Loredan) nel 1561, riunite in comunità da alcune nobildonne veneziane su ispirazione dei padri Gesuiti. Nel 1574 fu presentato un primo progetto di costruzione del nuovo ‘collegio laico’ dove le giovani avrebbero trovato vitto, alloggio e istruzione fino al raggiungimento della maggiore età.
Il progetto palladiano

La chiesa venne edificata dopo gli anni della peste, dal 1581 al 1585, con l’assistenza dei proti Bartolomeo Manopola e Simon Sorella, per poi essere consacrata nel 1588. Nonostante la mancanza di documenti si può attribuite il progetto ad Andrea Palladio, anche se la prima pietra fu collocata in loco un anno dopo la morte del noto architetto.«

»L’interno, a pianta poligonale, è arricchito da dipinti di Jacopo Palma il Giovane (Orazione nell’orto con, ai piedi, i committenti Pasquale ed Elisabetta Foppa), di Antonio Vassillachi (San Francesco inginocchiato al cospetto della Vergine con il Bambino e il procuratore Federico Contarini) e di Francesco Bassano (Presentazione della Vergine al tempio).«

L’architettura

L’architettura si rifà alla forma del tempio votivo a pianta centrale, trasformato in fase di costruzione per rispondere all’esigenza di inglobare la chiesa entro le ali dell’ospizio. Ciò che possiamo vedere oggi è una facciata a tempio sormontata da una grande cupola affiancata da due campaniletti: la parte inferiore della facciata si apre su due piccole, mentre in quello superiore è movimentata dall’apertura dell’ampia finestra termale a semicerchio.

Uncle Villy – Back to Earth  Blog (chapter 3)

 

Posted on December 4, 2018 

[3.] Orange Light, blue flames and Organ Music

I remember at one evening as we came back from our little walk at the near wood.
We had to cross the high-way bridge to come back to the streets where all the villas are, the diplomatic district of the city.
After a while, it was going to be evening, uncle Villy, uncle Pepi, Aunt Bea, Aunt Zdenka, uncle Pavel (her husband), mum suddenly stopped, Our little dog Mischa looked up to the sky.
We all looked now up to the sky. There was a little red point.

We all knew it, this is Planet Mars.

Uncle Villy made a big and long sigh. All knew it, but nobody wanted to talk about in the public, on the streets.
Although nearly nobody was on the street…but the Mars-Story of our family is not for all to know…

Only special readers are allowed in a few decades to listen to my little remembering.

Uncle Pepi took his hand and laid his hand on his shoulder and smiled to him.

His eyes said to him wordless: »You did your best…Now they are all heroes…It is a miracle that you are today with us…we are all very thankful for that…«

Uncle Villy looked back up to Mars and made again a long sigh.

As I saw them standing there I asked suddenly in this silence:
»Ludevit will come today and show us his new paintings from Planet Mars…«

And I jumped in the air very happy trying to reach Planet Mars with my little hands as little children sometimes do.

* * *

As we came back on that evening, going down the silent, peacefull diplomat-district to our family villa, I went a little round in our garden and played cosmonaut with my children toys.

I sniffed again on our garden roses from aunt Fanny and aunt Sophie – they were botanic specialists – then I went into our house to be with our family at the dining salon.

They spoke about literature and music till Ludevit came.

* * *

Later as Ludevit was also ready with evening dinner he went up with Uncle Villy to show him his new paintings from planet Mars.

»This I like very much…«, Uncle Villy said.

picture - painting of planet Mars landscape

picture – Planet Mars painting

And they talked and talked about their new book about the Mars Mission.

I did not understand them, it was to complicate for me as a little child.
But as they spoke about three orange suns and blue flames and Organ Music on Mars I was very interested.

»And there are really 3 Orange Suns and blue flames on Mars, and, and organ music…?«

»Oh, Gerald, we are now discussing if we should write it in the book or not because some could say this is not scientific enough…«, Uncle Villy said.

»But Villy, you wrote, that as you saw the 3 suns on Mars it was like a WELCOME on MARS…«, Ludevit said as positive argument.

»Yes, we write it because we think that the reader can interprete the feelings of the astronauts by themself…It reflects also the feeling they had as they saw this miracle…«, Ludevit answered.

Villy said: »To say that the astronauts saw these 3 orange suns is for them like to be welcome on Planet Mars…«

»Ludevit, you are a space-artist and I am a space-astronomer, a scientist. We are working together to write down this story of the first men on Mars in modern history. I understand that we can not write only the scientific facts that I wrote down in these hundreds of papers I had to write down and to calculate.
There must be something which is MORE then only a daily logbook of a space astronomer, (in our story a log book of a space-doctor). Only an artist can describe how astronauts had seen the surface of our brother planet Mars…Your painting is great…
Gerald…, Ludevit paintings are amazing, Isn’t it Gerald?«

»Yes, they are looking like real photos…«

167. Palmina’s secret composition for Palma

_ »Venice, 15..
(Love-Letter 167)

   Dear Palmina!

My heart feels lucky to think on you.
Especially now, my heart could feel and hear a little melody you composed for me.
I could feel that you send a beautiful music-message to my heart.
You are so touching deeply my heart if you play something for me. Especially your fine compositions.
I love you. I feel it, you are coming from a higher dimension to take care for my music development in my heart.
I thank you so much, my dear Pigeon,
my Saint Cecilia, my little inspiring yellow canary bird.

This inspires me to compose as little music answer to your composition –
a little variation of our »Thinking on each other – Melody«.

Our love is strong and it goes beyond all borders and problems! 🙂
There are enemies against our relation and love but love is always stronger.
Yes, we can exchange our love and music ideas here in our Peony Gondola at 11 p.m.

I am so looking forward to see you there.

I send you from my heart this music-Variation directly to your heart.
But listen good and find the melody. It is a little bit hidden. Tell me if you could find the hidden melody.

With much love

Your you loving
your deep love, your painter,
your composer

      Your Palma il Giovane,«

             * * * 

And Palmina and Palma continued to see this Peony-vision and both smiled.

Palmina hold his right hand. Yes, this could Palma feel and he smiled and was very thankful about her heartfelt thoughts.

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»Yes, today I played an own composition for you from heart-to-heart.
Later I send you also a short message but I saw that the brother of a music colleague of our little orchestra, which father is member of the dark sugar network, did steal her letter and showed it to her father. Her father observed this poor innocent daughter through his false brother since about two years. And…he also opened YOUR LETTER box and he steal also MY letter to you, I mean your letter…he did steal YOUR letter, because you are the normal owner of my letter if it is in YOUR letter box…so this guy has stolen our letter from YOU AND ME.«

Palmina kissed Palma on his right cheek soft and tender, Palma smiled.

»Yes, Palmina! Today I could feel your positive thoughts in my heart and suddenly I composed a variation about the »Thinking on each other melody«, Palma whispered to her in her ear.

»Oh fine! Can I listen to it?…But first I play my composition for you!!!

picture – manuscript

And Palmina started to play her beautiful composition.
Palma looked at her face and he felt all her love energy.
She played although her right middle finger painted a little bit.
But her love for Palma was stronger than her pain, she really cares for him, she really loves him.

Again she looked so beautiful playing her composition for him.

Palma smiled and such moments were Palma’s most beautifull moments in his live:
That Saint Cecilia is playing for him and to hear her playing only for him.

»Thank you my angel,
thank you my pigeon,
my little yellow canary bird,
Thank you my Pipa-Princess Wang Chun Chao
Thank you my Saint Cecilia.«,
Palma said and hugged her with his heart long and deeply.

Now I show you the copy of my letter which had been stolen and erased by the brother of my music colleague from my little orchestra«.

Palma hugged her and gave her a tender cheek kiss – a tender kiss to his white Pigeon.

And Palmina read her love letter to Palma:

»Venice, 15..

Dear Palma!

My deep and only love. Today I write you a short message. I hope that this letter will not be again stolen by the members of the dark sugar earth social network.
I decided to protect your creativity with my loving heart.

Today I played my composition as music answer for you.

I am so proud that you are composing the Cantico delle Creature.
It will be a big manifest for the divine light and against the darkness of the evil child-prostitution-networks worldwide.
Everywhere were evil people try to pay a lot of money to avoid a music performance of your Cantico delle Creature there are maybe criminal persons who are in connection with the children-sellers network like the Church of Security and its dark sugar earth connections.

I love your Cantico delle Creature and thank you that you dedicated so much Lute soli for my instrument to play in this artwork and I am really proud of you.
I came into your life as I was send to help you in your difficult life – in good times and in evil times.
Day by day I feel the music-mission together with you.
Even we can not often see us, speak us, write us and be together in the Gondola in Venice we have our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock, a present of the heaven, to stay in deep contact over big physical distances and big cultural distances – But are they big?
Yesterday I thought on you at 11 p.m. Did you feel it also?
Let’s talk about our music-ideas in the next meeting in our Peony-Gondola.

With much love

your Pigeon,
your yellow canary bird,
your Inspiration,
your personal Saint Cecilia,
Your Y…
       …ou loving Palmina«

            * * *

And Palma’s heart was so warm surrounded by her tender words.
Palma could not say any word but Palmina felt how he reacted in his heart.

And the Peony Gondola transmitted the music Palma composed about the »Thinking on each other Melody« and it was like that:

    VIDEO: [2018-11-26 Violin+Viola »Variation about the 'Thinking on each other' Melody« ] https://youtu.be/MMUqE1UclDQ
            (to be composed.....continued....)

163. »I compose during you are sleeping«

163. »I compose during you are sleeping«
    

And they flew with their Peony-Gondola along the stars at the evening sky.

Palmina laid her head on Palma’s side and said:
»I go now sleeping. Good night.«
»Oh, Good night. I will compose during you are sleeping.«, Palma answered.
»Wow, great, my Palma, my composer and writer…«
And she send him a tender kiss and Palma could receive it and she hold his right hand and Palma could feel it and he was lucky to feel her.

Palma wrote some notes on his music score and Palmina could feel and see him in her heart writing for her a composition.
Palmina smiled. Yes, she is really looking forward to get a new composition by her Jacopo Palma il Giovane.
It was their common secret and no one has the right to destroy such a beautiful heart-to-heart music-painting friendship, isn’t it ?; and why should this make any sense and for whom?

And they continued to dream at this 23 o’clock ( 11 p.m.) and they saw this:

                             * * * 

Palmina wrote and smiled with shining eyes:

»Dear Palma!

I am now writing during my concert-tour travelling to Vienna.
I hope I can see you soon!
In 15 hours we will arrive Vienna, the world city of culture and music!
How fine that our »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra« can play a charity concert there against international child-prostitution.

How wise is Master Lao! He could warn us: There are criminal enemy’s who wants to destroy our communication and our La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra. Therefore we have so much soldiers and bodyguards. I am carefully not to be influenced by a fake-bodyguard. I order always two body guards, so in the worse case only one is a fake-bodyguard and the other is a areal one…
I think I could figure out who is the fake-bodyguard, who is paid by the dark sugar earth network administrators and who wants to isolate me from contacts to other artists in Vienna.

I hope the criminals are not stealing my letters which I wrote to you.
I always write a copy so that I can give you my copy today in our Peony-Gondola hour today at 23 o’clock (11 p.m.).

How thankful I am that I can see you daily in our Peony-Gondola, the timeless, spaceless dimension. YES, no criminal evil soul is allowed to enter.

I am always thinking on you, my dear music-painting friend, since we spoke the first time in this live.
Our friendship is something that goes beyond primitive rules or traditions.The results of our friendship will have a positive influence of the world’s history, I believe…
We both like traditions and we both love them, because we are artists and to be an artist it means to know them, but I know: Art means not only tradition, but also tradition.
So this is your mission in Venice as artist as Master Scholar of Master Titian and I will always be with you to help you like a flying pigeon or a little bird in a cage beside your composing harpsichord.
More important it is that we THINK ON EACH OTHER and that we like us and that we love us.

How was your first painting lessons at the gardens of the Ming dynasty family?
Are they listening to you, are they talented?
Did you learn a little bit about Asian Art and music, especially the music instruments?

I can’t wait to see and to feel and to hear your heart beating at 11 p.m.

With much love and tenderness,

Your white Pigeon, your little yellow canary bird,

   Your you loving Palmina«


        * * *

And after they saw this Vision Palmina tried to touch Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and she kissed soft on his right cheek and he could feel it.

Every time she made this Palma smiled and he tried also to hold her hand and to kiss her soft.

The Peony-Gondola helped to unite them; to exchange ideas and feelings; to exchange love and light. In this Gondola there is no distance between two loving souls.
It is the best basic for a common cultural exchange.

»Palma?«
»Hm?«
»Why we don’t make a common composition?«
»A common composition?«
»Yes. Listen, Palma:
I mean YOU start to compose a few notes and then I compose a few notes as ANSWER…«
»Ah, good!… and then I compose again a few notes!
THAT’S A GOOD IDEA! Let’s do this in our Peony Gondola.«
»Yes. Palma, let us make a music dialogue of our hearts and write this down.
We are the first in music history doing this!«
»Yes, we are also the first in music history who loves deeply from our hearts without any support by…«
»…psst, don’t say it. My mum likes you and your mum likes me…«
Palma smiled and hold his strong arm around her and she laid her head on Palma’s right side to listen his heart and to be near to him. She gives him warm feeling and he gives her warm feelings even it is outside in the world sometimes cold and hard.

And they dreamed both now in music tones as an inner-heart dialogue and the Peony Gondola flew along the stars at the evening sky.

And as they flew along the stars at the evening sky they heard a music piece like that:

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

* * *

Palmina took her Pipa Lute and played the »Thinking on each other Melody« which Palma composed for her. Always if Palmina thought intensive on her Palma il Giovane she played this melody on her Pipa Lute or Venetian Lute.
Suddenly Palma felt a warm tender feeling in and around his heart. It felt like a Peony-Pink-Cyan White light.
Palm felt that Palmina is able to huge Palma only with her love and light fully thoughts.

Palma started suddenly to smile as he realized that and he started to think on her and he played the same Melody on his Viola to express his love for her.
After that he wrote:

»Venice, 15 – –

Dear Palmina!

Today I could feel deeply in my heart that you wrote me a message.
Sure the criminal administrators of the dark sugar earth social network erased it so I will not get any message. Maybe European laws will soon control them and judge them as we all expect it.
How good that we meet today in our Peony Gondola.

I miss you so much. I can’t wait to meet you again in the Peony Gondola.
Today I will hold my painting lesson at the gardens on Giudecca Island. I hope my students can follow my teaching.
I will also learn about Asian painting traditions, especially about traditional Chinese Wood-engraving Artwork. And sure Master Lao will tell us more about cultural traditions…
There are also a lot of Buddhist nuns, some are very,very young and they will held a prayer ceremony in the rooms of the Gardens of the Ming Dynasty Family on Giudecca Island in Venice.
That remembers me on Marco Polo.
Marco Polo was long time in China and was also a high grade politician and governor, personally selected by the Chinese Emperor.
On his way to the Emperor Marco Polo felt in love in a little young buddhist nun, the Chinese Princess. Later he married her and brought her to Venice and lived secretly there in the Gardens of Giudecca Island behind the well protected Walls.

Yes, Palmina, Marco Polo loves her, I mean he loves you, I mean he is still loving you, my inspiring Pigeon and secret princess.

Today a Pigeon was flying and looking like the saint spirit pigeon. She flew directly over me. Maybe a sign or an inspiring moment…

I am writing down the music we heard as we hugged so long in our Gondola.

I love you, my Pigeon, my Inspiration.

Your Jacopo Palma il Giovane.«

And they continued to dream their Peony-Gondola-Dream and they saw this at 11 p.m.:

And the Choir and the Musicians continued to make music during the feast mass in the San Marco Cathedral in Venice.
Palmina smiled from the music-gallery on the left upper side down to Palma who is very lucky to see her and to hear her performing his artwork.

The famous Cardinale Borromeo listened to Palma’s music compositions very interested.

»He is not only painting very good, he is also composing sacred music…Why a so famous painter of Venice, like Jacopo Palma il Giovane is composing this music…?
Hm, maybe he is in love and he is composing for a women to express his love for her… Composing for love…So beautiful…
Maybe a music dedication to a musician like the Lute Playing Girl? Or it is a dedication to Emperor Rudolf II or also a dedication to me? Hm, interesting, interesting… Yes, yes, I learned now something from him: Music will save the world once… I am sure! Palma is right – Palestrina, the famous composer in Rome; I have to order that he has to compose a Holy Mass for Rome! – That’s a good idea, Palma…«, Cardinale Borromeo was inspired to hear that music and was silently thinking.
And they heard also the »Benedictus« which was sung by Mihaela, Palma’s talented cousin, and she was very lucky and she smiled and smiled as she wants to jump of luckiness in the air because she is the first Mezzo-Soprano to perform this music in music history. Palmina played the Lute-part (it can be played also by a Pipa lute).

And as they listened this music in their Peony Vision Palmina smiled and looked into Palma’s eyes.

And they saw now this in their Peony Vision:

* * *

Palmina had a big success in the San Marco Cathedral and in order to that she got an official Invitation to play with the »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra«, the LZCO to have a concert in Vienna, Austria, the city of music.

But that means again an new sponsored concert tour.
But sponsored by whom? Who gives so much money to lead again Palmina out of the Republic of Venice? And again Palma can not see Palmina for a long time. What a pity!

Palma was lucky that his »Benedictus« was a big success in Venice, also for Palmina, but it means also that Palmina is on concert-tour for long.

She will not be in the morning at the little fine bakery store to sell mothers fine fresh little Venetian breads and to meet Palma there in the morning to smile for him.

And for her: It means not to see Palma painting in the San Antonin Church and not to play for him at the scaffolding.

It means also not to see her in the little atelier at the »Fondamenta dei Furlani« House Nr. 3291« where Palma paints during Palmina is playing for hours for him to inspire him.
It means also for them: Not to see each other at the beautiful Garden of »Giardino«. Not to speak to each other. Not to write to each other (As long the criminals of the dark sugar earth Administrators are not arrested by the Republic no letter will be un-stolen by them).

But they have the Peony Gondola !!!

* * *

Today Palma will finish his famous painting »La Pieta« and Palmina will play the last day before she is invited to travel to Vienna, to give a concert for mighty Emperor Rudolf II, the emperor of Austria.

»Palmina, you played so beautiful here in my little atelier… Your little sweet compositions for me are so amazing. I love you Palmina!
He laid his paint brush to the side and looked a last time on his finished painting.
Palmina said: »Well done, Jacopo Palma il Giovane. You painted me also wonderfully with my red concert cloth and with golden hairs like on Master Titians »Pieta«.
And Palma took Palmina’s talented hands and kissed her carefully several times.
»And I have to thank this talented hands that they played over 40 minutes music for me now. Thank you my Pigeon.«

»Oh Palma, its ok. I like you Palma, you know, it makes me lucky to inspire you and to help you to go your way here in Venice.«.

»Yes, my pigeon, my inspiration, my deep love.«
Palma kissed her arms several times.
Now they are the last time alone and they hugged deeply and tender and long.
Yes, after today’s invitation at the Giudecca Island, and they will go there, there where the gardens of the Chinese friends are, there where the members Family of the Ming Dynasty are living, after that concert they will not be alone. Tomorrow Palmina will leave Venice for a long time to travel to Vienna with the »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra« to make it famous in Europe.

Today they will meet at afternoon tea time at the Chinese Ming Family, with princess Lin and all the famous artists of the Ming Dynasty who survived the military attack against the Ming in the year 1583.
Maybe in later years, at peaceful times, they can go to China an live there as artists with big honours.
Today there will be a friendship concert – for a friendship between the mighty Republic of Venice and family members of the Ming-Dynasty.
The Chinese musician will play traditional Asian Music and the La Zitelle Chamber orchestra will play European and traditional Venice music pieces.
Today they can speak with Master Lao, who is a wise old man who can tell them some of his Visions he had last night.

mnigPalma and Palmina, after they hugged and kissed full of sympathy and love, they went both along the »Fondamenta del Furlani« along the San Antonin Church, along the big place »Campo Bandiera e Moro« to visit mum in the bakers shop, to get some fine fresh breads, to go along the »Calle de la Pieta« in the direction to the long Promenade »Riva degli Schiavoni«.
They went slowly along the clear sea water in the south direction to the famous »Giardino« garden.
There was also the bank to sit in front of the statue and they sat down again like on other important days in their life.
Palma hugged her. He kissed her on her cheek. She smiled but both were silent and they know, these are their last hours to be alone together.
How often they sat here on this bank and looked to the stars. How often they drove with the Peony Gondola to the Moon-palace to visit the Moon Princess Chang’e and how often they visited planet Mars to great the Mars princess there in their common Peony-Dreams.
Yes, their dreams are sometimes more real then some real days which seems to be sometimes unreal and hard.
How much people died in the last century in Venice on the pest… 30 precent of the people died in Venice. Therefore the Venetian Republic build the »Chiesa Il Redentore« Church on Giudecca Island as »thank you« for surviving that hard time and the Republic ordered also paintings by Palma il Giovane for that beautiful Church.

¹ »Chiesa Il Redentore« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_Redentore

»Il Redentore was built as a votive church in thanksgiving for deliverance from a major outbreak of the plague that decimated Venice between 1575 and 1576, in which some 46,000 people (25–30% of the population) died.«
»Il Redentore contains paintings by Francesco Bassano, Lazzaro Bastiani, Carlo Saraceni, Leandro Bassano, PALMA IL GIOVANE, Jacopo Bassano, Francesco Bissolo, Rocco Marconi, Paolo Veronese, Alvise Vivarini and the workshop of Tintoretto. «

* * *

Exactly this thoughts were also spoken at the friendship concert at the Gardens on Giudecca Island where the Chinese People are living under the protection of the Republic of Venice.

»…and we also are thankful for surviving the pest and also the attacks by the dark sugar earth network here in Venice like you, my Chinese friends, you also survived the war attacks of the Qing Dynasty, who will now own whole China for a long time. So we are thankful for your invitation and your beautiful friendship concert…«, Cardinale Carolus Borromeo continued to speak:
»…and we can announce that there will be a charity concert in Vienna against child-prostitution by our La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra and if some of you will come with them to Vienna to see this beautiful old city and to listen our concerts there the Republic of Venice will send a lot of Bodyguards to protect you during your travel. Palmina Albina, our best Lute player will have 6000 Varanguards to protect her during her concert travel to Vienna…«.

And all spectators applauded here in the big wild gardens of Giudecca-Island.
The buildings and gardens are surrounded by walls and a lot of Soldiers are protecting all entrances: Chinese Soldiers in traditional Ming-Dynasty-Uniforms and Venetian Soldiers, and also some Varanguards for Palmina are standing to protect them all.

* * *

The afternoon concert went very well. Palmina played also a solo composed by Palma and a solo composed by Palmina on her lutes.
After the concerts a lot of Chinese servants brought fresh cooked Chinese traditional food, some specially adapted for the European taste.

Palma went to the stage to see Palmina and he asked the musicians if he can try out the traditional Asian Instruments.

»Oh, you know how to hold a traditional Pipa¹ lute and to make a few tones…?« a very young Chinese musician in white traditional Asian cloth said friendly smiling.
She allowed him to play on her Pipa and Palma played and (he tried it) played.
»Thank you, Xie Xie«, Palma said smiling after he played (tryed) a long time
Later Palma tried the traditional GuZheng² instrument and made some tones.
»Oh, that’s interesting…I would like to learn to play…«

¹ Pipa – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pipa
² GuZheng – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guzheng

The musician smiled and said »Signore Palma il Giovane, you painted us so beautiful in the last years here in Venice. If we can take painting lessons from you, here in our gardens we would feel very honoured. If you like, our talented princess can teach you and show you the secrets of our Asian culture and arts, especially of our music. They would love to explain you how this instruments are played. And…, and if you like you can write some music for our little Ming-Dynasty-Orchestra…«
And Palma was surprised for this friendly invitation.
»Palma, say yes! This is a big honour…!«, Palmina said.
Palmina was 2 years in China at the pacific island and learned not only the language a little bit, she knows how Asian people are fealing inside their heart.

»During I am in Vienna you will be here with the Ming Dynasty Family, here on that little beautiful secure Island in our Republic.«

Palma made a big sigh because he will miss Palmina and agreed to that big honour of cultural exchange.
Yes, Palma wants to learn about Asian cultures. Palmina lived on that Pacific Island for years. It is now a part of Palmina’s live and experience. He wants to understand this because he loves her.
»Yes, we have to learn from each other. The East from us West and we, West from your Eastern traditions.«

The little musician in the white beautiful cloth said: »Marco Polo was a Venetian and he married a Buddhist nun, a real Chinese Princess and lived here on that Island with her, the Chinese legend is telling.«

And as he saw that her eyes shined very beautifully Palma begun to study her eyes to be prepared to paint her and to teach her and to give her painting lessons in the future.

»I see you both are understanding very well, hm?«, Palmina said and hoped that Palma will manage now the time without her here in Venice.

»And..and…can I have some Violin lessons by your mother…Xíng ma?« the little Chinese Princess asked innocent and hoped that Palma will say yes.

* * *

The beautiful and ceremonial afternoon transformed into a long evening with lanterns – Chinese lanterns and Venetian Lanterns – with Chinese music and Venetian music from the 16th century.

It was a little fine feast and all enjoyed it but Palma did know that if Palmina will now go to Vienna with her orchestra and some Chinese delegation Palma will be again lonely for a long time.
Again it is a sponsored concert tour. Will Palma again have to wait on Palmina for years?

* * *

And after they saw this Peony-Vision at this 23 o clock time (11 p.m.) they dreamed what they say today at the »Giardino«-Garden. Palmina and Palma remembered this and they saw this in their Peony Vision sitting together now at the Peony-Gondola:

* * *

Today they saw a white Pigeon at the Giardino of South Venice and the Pigeon landed on a leave.

picture 3 – white pigeon

In their dream the Pigeon spoke to them with a soft voice:

»Dear Palma and Palmina! Be careful the next time! The Criminal Church of Security took money from the Administrators of the Dark Sugar Earth Network to make an attack to you. Don’t go alone on the streets of Venice. Stay at the Chinese Family at their gardens. For a while the Titian Art School should take place there. Till the secret service of the republic found out and arrest the criminals of the international child-prostitution network stay at them as long as you can. There are good security Elite-soldiers protecting you. Chinese Soldiers and Venetian Soldiers and Varangian Guards¹!«


¹ Varangian Guard -Wikipedia –
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varangian_Guard

»The Varangian Guard (Greek: Τάγμα τῶν Βαράγγων, Tágma tōn Varángōn) was an elite unit of the Byzantine Army, from the 10th to the 14th centuries, whose members served as personal bodyguards to the Byzantine Emperors.«


Palma and Palmina looked surprised to the white speaking pigeon.

»And you Palmina, be careful: One of the Bodyguards is a FAKE BODYGUARD and he is paid by the international child-prostitution-network of the Dark Sugar Earth Dealers. He wants to isolate you and destroy your concert-career in Vienna. He has orders not to allow cultural exchange with the famous artists of Vienna so that no one will know your name as lute player in music history. Don’t trust him, don’t eat his dark sugar earth. He cancels your artist contacts and meetings without your permission! And don’t be alone with a man or a fake priest (an »Ostary³« which wears false priest cloth). The false Bodyguard will try to isolate you the whole concert in order to destroy your future music career. Don’t be alone with any man in a room also if this bodyguard said that this is expected from you otherwise you will loose your position as solist. Order always two, listen: two soldiers to protect you: A Chinese Soldier and an European Soldier. Good luck Palma and Palmina. Groo, Grooooo.«.

³ »Ostiarius« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostiarius
Is NOT priest, »In the Roman Catholic Church, this „porter“ became the lowest of the four minor orders prescribed by the Council of Trent. This was the first order a seminarian…«

After that the white Pigeon started to fly high in the heaven and was not seen after a while.

picture 5 – heart leave

As Palma looked down to earth he saw that old leave.
It had a tiny hole like a heart.

»The white Pigeon showed us to find this symbol of an old, old, old love, my Wang Chun chao – my Marco-Polo Princess, My Du Liniang, My Palmina, my white Pigeon.«

Palmina laid her head on Palma’s beating heart and Palma reacted with putting his strong arm around his little Palmina Albina.

She thought also on the old vision of the little yellow canary bird in the wooden cage who will inspire the most famous composer of Europe to do his artwork in over 100 years.

And they heard now this mystic music:
