Abstract

Medical history and relationship to the medical conditions as well as to the music creativity and productivity of some of the classical European composers have been described. In this review article we analyzed their illnesses as well as association between physical or mental diseases and their creativity and adaptability to disease. Some classical composers suffered from organic diseases, while others complained of mental disturbances. However, in spite of their disorders, the intensity of their creativity mostly remained unchanged.

Neki klasični skladatelji su patili od organskih bolesti dok su se drugi žalili na mentalne smetnje. Unatoč tome, njihova kreativnost je ostala nepromijenjena.
