Georg Philipp Telemann was among the most distinguished composers of his time, a rival in reputation to his friend Johann Sebastian Bach, whom he outlived by seventeen years. He was godfather to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Johann Sebastian's son.

Telemann was a prolific composer and left behind an enormous body of work, both sacred and secular. This included 1,043 church cantatas and 46 settings of the Passions. His musical style developed with the times, from the characteristically late Baroque to the new stile galant exemplified by his godson.

2017 marks the 250th anniversary of Telemann's death. He died on 25 June, 1767.
