Born in the same famous Italian city, composer and violinist, this is one of the personalities who have marked the history of music with an extremely interesting life story, drawn from an artistic film.
Maddalena Laura Lombardini Sirmen was born from parents of noble origin, but who had lost their fortune. She beghan her musical studies at the age of 7, at the orphanage where she lived in Venice. She later received private lessons from Giuseppe Tartini, one of the greatest violinists of the time, who also paid for her lessons at the orphanage. She married another beloved violinist of the time - Ludovico Sirmen - who supported her in her artistic career, even composed a few works and began a tour in Europe.
In the concert at the Radio Hall you will also hear Schubert: Rondo in La major for violin and string orchestra and Mozart: Symphony no. 40.

His career consolidation continued with appearances on stage in Stuttgart, Mannheim, Bayreuth, Heidelberg, Nuremberg, Hamburg, Berlin, Milan, Strasbourg, Madrid, Bilbao, Zaragoza, Vienna, Budapest, Tokyo and so on.
She was invited to prestigious festivals such as "La Folle journée" - Nantes, the Aix en Provence Festival, Edinburgh Festival, Bayreuther Festspiele and the "George Enescu" International Festival.
