Sheet music for flute

Artist: Georg Philipp Telemann
Born: 14 March 1681, Magdeburg

The artist: German Baroque composer and multi-instrumentalist. Almost completely self-taught in music, he became a composer against his family's wishes. After studying in Magdeburg, Zellerfeld, and Hildesheim, Telemann entered the University of Leipzig to study law, but eventually settled on a career in music. Telemann was and still is one of the most prolific composers in history and was considered by his contemporaries to be one of the leading German composers of the time
