George Philip Telemann (1681 –1767)

George Philip Telemann (1681 –1767) left study of the law to become the most prolific German composer of his time, largely self-taught. He was an acquaintance of both George Friedrich Handel and Johan Sebastian Bach. By age 12, he had composed his first opera.  He also composed poetry, wrote his own libretti, and engraved covers and published his own compositions. His married life was marred by spousal death and debt. His compositional style brought together a number of international musical styles.
