G. P. Telemann

Georg Philipp Telemann (1681–1767) was the archetypal eighteenth-century polymath—linguist, diplomat, businessman and publisher, as well as one of the foremost composers of his age. He died prosperous and famous - he made a substantial profit on his publications - and, remarkably for a man of such overt ambition, extraordinarily popular. He died contented, loved and universally respected by his contemporaries.
