The name might not be familiar, but Georg Phillip Telemann was the most successful of all Baroque music composers. Then as now, being a musician was not the most lucrative nor prestigious of occupations. Georg's parents did not rest until he got into a university law degree program. Through college he kept the music up. He never practiced law, but he took the musical world by storm. One might suppress a passion, but one can never kill it.
