Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher of the late 19th century who challenged the foundations of Christianity and traditional morality. 

However, he loved music and declared that “life without music is an error.“ Not many know that he also composed a number of songs and piano pieces.  These are not often performed, but do tell us a lot about his artistic interests.
