It’s interesting but the life of a composer rarely did consist just of composing music. Bach had numerous other duties and Mozart as free lance had to take pupils and live the life of a virtuoso. It was Beethoven’s deafness that forced him into the life of a composer else he would’ve done other things especially as a pianist. Mahler was a conductor. As a writer, writing is a sideline among other things. And I guess composing is to musicians unless they are extremely fortunate in finding funding
