This week we take a look at the reign of Frederick II in Germany from 1212 to 1220. Most of what he did was putting a nail in an actual coffin whilst also putting the metaphorical nail into the carcass of imperial rule in Germany. And was that such a bad thing? What happens when the emperor just hands out what is left of the royal demesne? Cathedrals go up, princes hold splendid courts and none of them think about disturbing the peace in Italy. If you are the king of Sicily, that is a near perfect result. And if you are the pope, even more so, in particular when Frederick II throws in a brand-new crusade and swears on all that is holy that he would never pursue a link-up between Sicily and the empire.

This week we will go back 20 years and pick up the other strain of our history of the Hohenstaufen. The last three episodes we focused on events in Germany and the struggle between Philipp of Swabia and Otto IV. Today we take a closer look at the early years of Frederick II, before he cameup to Germany and took over. Little is known but much has been written about the youth of emperor Frederick II, not only because it was exceedingly turbulent, but also because it forged a man who burst on the European stage aged 14 already displaying many of those personality traits that would make him known as the Stupor Mundi, the Astonishment of the World. How did he become who he became? As always, this episode has a dedicated website with the transcript and maps, pictures and additional comments to read along.

Donald Macleod explores the life and works of legendary organist and composer Dietrich Buxtehude. Buxtehude was a musical star in his own time, whom Johann Sebastian Bach walked almost 300 miles just to meet and learn from. Yet, the facts of Buxtehude's own story are far from straight forward. Doubts remain over so many details in the composer's life. We can't even be sure when or where he was born, leading to three different countries claiming him as their own, and for a musician who perhaps above all was famed for his organ music, it is remarkable that not one single organ piece by him was published in his lifetime. In this Composer of the Week series, Donald Macleod pieces together what we do know about Buxtehude, the pre-eminant European composer before Bach, and finds a multifaceted personality and ground-breaking musician who worked his way across Europe via three different churches dedicated to St Mary, and who – once he settled in Lubeck - acted as a kind of centre of gravity for other musicians of his age.

Synopsis On today's date in 17th century Germany, a baby boy was christened who would grow up to be one of the leading composers and organists of his time. No, it wasn't Johann Sebastian Bach – although the child we're discussing here would become the teacher of the teacher of J.S. Bach and did serve as godfather to one J.S. Bach's older relations. It was Johann Pachelbel who was baptized on today's date in Nuremberg in the year 1653. A famous musician in his day, after his death in 1706, Pachelbel would be pretty much forgotten by most music lovers until late in the 20th century, when an orchestral arrangement of a little chamber piece that he had written would, as Pachelbel's “Canon,” suddenly become an unexpected hit. In 1979, the American composer George Rochberg even included a set of variations on Pachelbel's Canon as the 3rd movement of his own String Quartet No. 6. Like Bach, some of Pachelbel's children also became composers, and one of them, Karl Teodorus Pachelbel, emigrated from Germany to the British colonies of North America. As “Charles Theodore Pachelbel,” he became an important figure in the musical life of early 18th century Boston and Charleston, where he died in 1750, the same year as J.S.

This week we will see the reverse of 1046 when there was one emperor choosing between three popes. Today, we have one Pope, given the choice between three emperors. How could that happen? Last time we looked we had Henry VI. at the peak of his reign, being king of Sicily, having pushed through the inheritability of the imperial title and de-facto encircled the pope militarily. But now, just 2 years later the picture is reversed. There is a reason the wheel of fortune is one of the favourite subjects of high medieval art..

Andrea Zogg hat sich als junger Mann bei mehreren Schauspielschulen beworben. Sowohl in der Schweiz wie auch im Ausland lehnte man ihn jedoch ab, angeblich weil er zu wenig führ- und formbar sei. Dass Andrea Zogg als Schauspieler ohne Diplom trotzdem reüssiert hat, verdankt er seiner Leidenschaft und Spielfreude. Aber die Arbeit an etablierten Bühnen im deutschsprachigen Raum schränkten ihn zu stark ein, gab er schon vor Jahren zu. Oder er war mit dem Honorar einer Produktion nicht einverstanden. Den schweizer Tatort musste er nach wenigen Folgen wieder verlassen, angeblich wegen zu hoher finanziellen Forderungen. Die kantigen Figuren des Volksschauspielers sind uns aus Filmen wie Sennetuntschi, Schellen-Ursli oder Zwingli in bester Erinnerung. Und Zoggs Schaffenskraft ist wenige Monate vor dem Pensionsalter noch lange nicht am Ende. Als Gast bei Röbi Koller wird er deshalb nicht nur auf biografische Schlüsselstellen zurückschauen, sondern auch über zukünftige Projekte reden. Musik ist für den Bündner Schauspieler in seiner zweiten Lebenshälfte immer wichtiger geworden. Seit 2016 hat er mehrere Opern inszeniert. Zudem steht er nach wie vor im Solostück Georg Friedrich Händels Auferstehung als Erzähler und Sänger auf der Bühne. Aktuell probt Andrea Zogg ein Stück, das seine Frau Eva Roselt geschrieben hat: «WOM White Old Men – Eine Totenmesse», mit Musik von Henry Purcell bis Nina Hagen. Premiere ist am 4. September in Chur. Auf Andrea Zoggs Playlist finden sich Songs wie «Als der Zirkus in Flammen stand» von Georg Kreisler, das in ihm, als er 6-jährig war, die Sehnsucht nach einem Leben im Scheinwerferlicht weckte. Auch ein Stück von Johann Sebastian Bach, seinem Lieblingskomponisten, ist dabei: die Arie «Erbarme dich» aus der Matthäus Passion. Diese kommt nämlich im Stück «White Old Men» vor.

Cities and Memory - remixing the sounds of the world

Composition by Domina Acusmatica.  "Kaffeemühlekantate is a 2022 composition written by the artistic collective Domina Acusmatica. The piece features the sample of Krups Type 222 Coffee Grinder and has been written for the Obsolete Sounds project. "The composition reimagines an obsolete world in both the form and the content: it is a tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach, in particular to his Kaffeekantate, and is formally a cantata divided into 3 subsections: recitativo, aria and coro, shaped upon a baroque cliché but filled with contemporary though obsolete sounds deriving from the aforementioned sample. "The recitativo is a free section in which the elements of the whole cantata are introduced. The aria is similar to a baroque aria con da capo, it includes “instruments” and “basso continuo” (all deriving from the Krups coffee grinder sample), and a brief final cadenza of the “soloist”. The coro is a polyphonic SATB choir where a dialogue between high and low voices is established. The whole piece ends with a 4-part chord ideally sung by the ideal choir." This is part of the Obsolete Sounds project, the world's biggest collection of disappearing sounds and sounds that have become extinct – remixed and reimagined to create a brand new form of listening.

When Barbarossa drowns in the river Saleph in 1190 the crown transfers to his eldest surviving son, Henry, known to History as Henry VI. This is the first time since the accession to personal rule of Emperor Henry III in 1039 that the imperial crown moves from father to grown up son without a glitch. In the previous 150 years, the passing of an emperor had been a dramatic event where all the cards were dealt anew. Just remember, Henry IV came to the throne as a child, Henry V by rebellion against his father, Lother III wasn't in any meaningful way related to the imperial family, Konrad III came in by a coup against the named heir, as did Barbarossa. The French meanwhile had five transitions from father to son, with only one 6-year regency. This consistency in reproduction is one of the key reasons the Capetion dynasty was so much more successful than their German counterparts, though the greatest of the Capetions has only just appeared, Phillipp II Augustus (1180 to 1223). More, and a lot more about him later. Talking about famous protagonists, the other contemporary of Henry VI is of course Richard the Lionheart (1189 to 1199). Of him we will hear even more. But today's episode is mainly about the lay of the land and the first attempt to achieve the main aim of his reign, control of the kingdom of Sicily. The music for the show is Flute Sonata in E-flat major, H.545 by Carl Phillip Emmanuel Bach (or some claim it as BWV 1031 Johann Sebastian Bach) performed and arranged by https://www.windrep.org/Michel_Rondeau (Michel Rondeau) under https://imslp.org/wiki/Flute_Sonata_in_E-flat_major%2C_H.545_%28Bach%2C_Carl_Philipp_Emanuel%29 (Common Creative Licence 3.0).

Der Theatermacher Ruedi Häusermann ist bekannt dafür, Neues auszuloten und angstfrei zu experimentieren. Aber sein Werk war auch stets in einen vergnügt kindlichen Humor eingebettet. Publikum und Kritiker belohnen Häusermanns Schaffen seit Jahren mit einer beispiellosen Treue. Geboren, getauft, eingeschult und sozialisiert in Lenzburg: Ruedi Häusermann ist nie von seinem Heimatstädtchen weggezogen. Gedanklich bricht er aber jederzeit aus Konventionen und Korsetten aus. Regeln waren für ihn schon als Kind eine Einladung, dieselbigen zu brechen, voller Neugierde, was man damit auslöst. So gaben er und sein Bruder ihr erstes Hauskonzert mit je einem einbandagierten Arm, um nur die linke beziehungsweise die rechte Hand der Haydn Sonate spielen zu müssen. Einige von Häusermanns musikalischen Projekten lassen schon vom Namen her Ungewöhnliches erwarten: «Jerry Dental Kollekdoof», «Tanto Pressanto» oder «Früher war ich sehr ruhig, jetzt ists etwas besser». Seine Bühnenstücke sind mit Heiterkeit durchzogen und von Nonsense geprägt. Nach Robert Walser, dessen Werk er intensiv studiert hat, hiess eines seiner Projekte «Unterricht in der Kunst, die Fröhlichkeit nicht einzubüssen». Aber der Eindruck täuscht: Hinter der gespielten Leichtigkeit in Projekten wie «Kapelle Eidg. Moos» oder «Randolphs Erben. Blas- und Streichinstrumente An- und Verkauf» steckt akribische Detailarbeit. Aktuell arbeitet Ruedi Häusermann mit Gerhard Polt und den Biermösl Blosn zusammen. Die gemeinsam erarbeitete Inszenierung soll «A scheene Leich» heissen – ein Stück über das Geschäft mit dem Tod. Ruedi Häusermann bringt Musik zur Sendung mit, die ihn durchs Leben begleitet hat: ein Ländler von Kasi Geiser, ein Violinkonzert von Johann Sebastian Bach, eine Ballade von Chet Baker und mehr. Röbi Koller stellt die Fragen dazu. Erstsendung: 5. September 2021

Synopsis Two or three days after his death on July 28, 1750, the final rites were held in Leipzig, in St. John's Church, for Johann Sebastian Bach, considered by many the greatest composer who ever lived. Bach was buried in the churchyard of St. John's. In 1894, his remains were discovered during excavations and were reburied inside. Although not unappreciated in his lifetime, and not completely forgotten for nearly a century as myth would have it (Mozart and Beethoven both revered him), it's true that Bach's real stature was not fully recognized by the wider public until Felix Mendelssohn's famous revival performance of Bach's “St. Matthew Passion” in Berlin in 1829. And since Mendelssohn's 19th century revival, Bach's Passion settings and cantatas have been staged as operas or ballets in the 20th and 21st. His music has survived arrangements for solo piano, full symphony orchestra, Moog synthesizer, authentic “period” instruments, Japanese koto orchestra, shakuhachi flute, and the various jazz stylings of the Swingle Singers and the late pianist of the Modern Jazz Quartet, John Lewis. However it was adapted or altered by the passing fashion or fads of the day, Bach's music continues to touch whoever plays it or listens to it. Music Played in Today's Program J. S.

Way back when, in Episode 30 we identified three drivers of the Investiture Controversy. These were: the conflict between the emperor and the princes, the conflict of the emperor with the popes and the rise and rise of piety amongst the lay people. These last 38 episodes we did talk at length about the how the princes established their own territorial lordships against the imperial central power and man did we talk about the conflict between popes and emperors.   But that third element we only touched in passing. We covered the Paterna uprising in Milan and later the emergence of the scholastic method, the role of Bernhard of Clairvaux and the crusading movement. But that did not mean at all that lay piety had gone away. Absolutely not. It was the most crucial development in what Jacques le Goff called the “Birth of Europe”. Now is the time to talk about it in context.  As always, this episode has a dedicated website with the transcript and maps, pictures and additional comments to read along.

Today marks the death of Johann Sebastian Bach (1865-1750), an ardent student of music and diligent student of theology. Raised in a family of north German musicians, he lost both his parents by age 10. He sang in a boys' choir and played the violin early on, and later moved to the organ where he quickly was recognized for his unique talents.   And of course, today he's known for his compositions, where his deep knowledge of theology is so evident. Although music historians may point out the variety of musical influence—northern and southern German, French, and Italian music, Christians have long marveled at the theological richness found in the cantatas Bach wrote for churches in Leipzig. As director of church music, he designed each one to echo the Gospel reading in both language and emotional effect. Over time, it earned him the title of the “Fifth Evangelist.”   Like Bach, let's be sure that in all the works of our hands and especially in our creative acts to draw from a deep and growing knowledge of God.

Synopsis Many composers have produced works inspired by their deep religious faith: in the 18th century, the sacred music of the devout Lutheran church musician Johann Sebastian Bach being a notable example. Even in our more secular age, this is sometimes the case. The contemporary Scottish composer James MacMillan's works have explicit Christian themes, and, like Franz Liszt in the 19th century, MacMillan has even taken minor religious orders in the Roman Catholic Church. On commission from the London Symphony, MacMillan wrote three interrelated orchestral works, two concertos and a symphony, all based on the Passion and Resurrection story. The first of these, entitled “The World's Ransoming,” for English horn and orchestra, focused on Maundy Thursday of Holy Week, and was premiered at the Barbican Center in London on today's date in 1996. Of this piece, MacMillan wrote, “'The World's Ransoming' includes musical references to [traditional liturgical] plainsongs for that day, as well as a Bach chorale … which I have heard sung in the eucharistic procession … The title of the piece comes from St. Thomas Aquinas's [Latin] hymn ‘Pange Lingua'.” An English translation of part of the Aquinas hymn reads: Sing, my tongue, the Savior's glory, Of His Flesh, the mystery sing; Destined, for the world's ransom, From a virgin's womb to spring.

This is about the peasants, no kings, emperors, popes, bishops at all. Ok one brother of a duke at the end because I simply cannot help myself. But yes, peasants. What was the life of a peasant in Germany in around 1200 really like? How much do we actually know about their living conditions? Did it differ much from country to country? The correct answer to all of these is – we are not really sure. These sections of the podcast are always the hardest ones. Following some king or emperor around is fairly straightforward. That s what the sources are focused on and you can compare them as well as the different interpretation and you get a half decent picture of what is likely to have happened. But nobody has written a chronicle about the poor Michel, sharecropper on the lands of the count of Pfullendorf. Let alone a second one from the perspective of the count. Still we try.
