I discovered GP Telemann (in a serious way) slightly before JS Bach, because of Telemann's fondness for writing for the Treble Recorder, which I particularly liked.
Telemann clearly ranks below JS Bach and GF Handel - but could, at times, match them - as above.
And here is the start of his major work for the Treble Recorder:
Few know the name of Jan Dismas Zelenka - too few. One day, he shall be known as the genius he was.
I particularly enjoy his Miserere and his Missa Votiva.
