During his lifetime, Georg Philipp Telemann was more famous than his younger friend, Johann Sebastian Bach. The composer of more than 20 operas, at least 1000 Cantatas and 46 settings of the Passions, he was to dominate music in the city of Hamburg, eventually assuming the role of Director of the Opera House. His music was to have a major influence throughout Europe, and he lived well into the period dominated by Haydn and Mozart. Unlike Bach, he composed in every genre of music, though today his fame largely resides in his orchestral scores. Many of these were composed in dance rhythms, Tafelmusik being among the most engaging orchestral works written in the 18th century.
