    Lightbulb Avicenna

    An extraordinary polymath who lived some time during the Middle Ages. He mastered a great number of subjects including medicine, philosophy, mathematics, politics, and economy.

    One of his side-hobbies was music, which he also mastered. Sadly, I'm not sure how much (if any) of his musical works survived.

    Feel free to share if you find anything interesting.
