Vječna luč mog postojanja
Osmijeh s nebesa
Mudra rijeko sveprisutnih emocija
Ona tiha suzo nekanuta
Neumorni osmijehu mog lica
Daješ mi moć da grlim svijet
I da gladim duše umorne
I kad vape i kad se smiješe
Ti si moć sadašnjeg trenutka
I svekolike vječnosti
Volim Te glazbo jer si odraz
I dokaz da se čovjeku
On neprestano smiješi
Volim Te jer si mi dala krila
jer si svakome jasna
jer si oduvijek sa mnom bila,
I potom opet
Kad se stiša buka
I kad se poremete svete tišine
Kad utihnu sve melodije
I svaki taj očajni ljudski krik
Potom opet
Zemljina utjeho
Sempre da capo
Nastupaš ti.

Ivana Marija Vidović, 5.8.2015.

[ french version ]

Sempre da capo
à la musique

Lumière éternelle de mon existence
Sourire du ciel
Sage fleuve de toutes les émotions
Larme silencieuse retenue
Sourire infatigable de mon visage
Tu me donnes le pouvoir d'étreindre le monde
De caresser les âmes lassées
Qu'elles sourient ou qu'elles geignent
Tu es la force du moment présent
De l'éternité multiple
Je t'aime Musique car tu es le reflet du Créateur
Qu'il sourit perpétuellement à l'homme
Je t'aime car tu m'as donné des ailes
Car tu es claire pour tous
Car tu étais avec moi au commencement
Et après encore
Quand le vacarme se calme
Quand les silences sacrés se troublent
Quand toutes les mélodies se taisent
Et tout cri de désespoir
Après encore
Consolation de la Terre
Sempre da capo
Tu entres en scène.

Traduit par Cornelia et Ivana Marija

[ english version ]

To the music

The eternal light of my existence
A smile from the heavens
A wise river of emotion,
a quiet tear
Tireless smile on my face
You give me the power to embrace the world
And to stroke each tired souls
whether it cries or smiles
You are the power of the present moment
And of eternity
I love you music because you are a reflection
of the Creator
And the proof that he keeps smiling
to men
I love you because you gave me wings
because you are clear
and you've always been with me,
And then again,
When the noise fades away
and the sacred silence is gone
And when all these miserable human screams
have calmed down
oh you, consolation to the earth
Sempre da capo
you perform.

Memorail to genial Ruder Boskovic

At the initiative of the Croatian General Consulate in Milan and a humanist and friend, the Italian lawyer Cristian Pambianchi a Memorial to the greatest Croatian scientist of all times, Ruder Boskovic was finally set. This ceremonial act was musically enriched by the duo Vox Ragusei: the mezzo-soprano Diana Hilje and the pianist Ivana Marija Vidovic who at the beginning of the ceremony interpreted the both hymns and after revealing the memorial on the front of the church of Santa Maria Podone where the scientist was buried (12.2.1787) they performed a recital with carefully chosen programme for such event. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to make this event glorious indeed. Thanks for the great honour that you have entrusted us with.
