Telemann Died

German Baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann died on this day in 1767.

Almost entirely self-taught, he is remembered as one of the most prolific composers in history – compared favourably in his time to contemporaries Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frederick Handel.

Telemann’s major contributions to the string repertoire include: a violin concerto, ’12 Fantasias for Solo Violin’ – and his signature Viola Concerto in G Major.
