Georg Philipp Telemann (1681 – 1767) was a 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. He held important positions in Leipzig, Sorau, Eisenach, and Frankfurt before settling in Hamburg in 1721, where he became musical director of the city's five main churches.

Telemann was one of the most prolific composers in history (at least in terms of surviving oeuvre) and was considered by his contemporaries to be one of the leading German composers of the time—he was compared favorably both to his friend Johann Sebastian Bach, who made Telemann the godfather and namesake of his son Carl Philipp Emanuel, and to George Frideric Handel, whom Telemann also knew personally.

Georg Philipp Telemann age twelve wrote an opera: Sigismundus. This so concerned his mother that she confiscated his musical instruments and made him study jurisprudence. She wanted him to be something respectable, not a 'boatman, tightrope walker, fiddler, or marmot tamer' (1740 autobiography).

Telemann did his best to comply and in 1701 decided to enroll in the law school at Leipzig University. However, he discovered some instruments in a fellow-student's room and from that moment devoted himself exclusively to music.

Telemann composed a vast body of work and made a lot of money, some of it from self-publishing. He was friends with Handel and J.S. Bach, and godfather to one of the latter's sons, Carl Philipp Emanuel.

In Hamburg in 1732-3 Telemann published three books of fantasias for harpsichord (TWV 33:1-36). The first and third books are in the Italian style, the second in the French. They are early Rococo miniatures, with light, clear-textured writing. Each book contains twelve fantasias.

Although originally written for Harpsichord, I created this unconventional arrangement for Bassoon and Contrabassoon duet.
