JOHANNES BRAHMS (Hamburgo, 7 de maio de 1833 — Viena, 3 de abril de 1897) foi um compositor alemão, uma das mais importantes figuras do romantismo musical europeu do século XIX e da história da Musica.
Georg Philipp Telemann (14 March 1681 – 25 June 1767), a German Baroque composer and multiinstrumentalist. Almost completely self-taught in music, he was the most prolific composer of his time with an oeuvre comprising more than 3,000 pieces. Equally important for the history of music were Telemann's publishing activities. By pursuing exclusive publication rights for his works, he set one of the most important early precedents for regarding music as the intellectual property of the composer.
