When Did Classic Composers Make Their Best Work?
Franses, Philip Hans
Creativity Research Journal, v28 n2 p219-221 2016
This Research Note shows that classic composers created their best works when they were at a similar age when creators in other domains did their best work, namely when they were at an age that represented around 60% of their life span. This finding is very similar to earlier results for painters and authors.
