Maddalena Lombardini Sirmen is the single product of those Venetian conservatories devoted exclusively to educating women as musicians to have become internationally famous as a composer. All of the pieces were published widely in England, France, and the Netherlands-some in as many as five editions. These concertos are rare examples of the mature classical style in Venice during the late 1760s.
Concerto I in B-flat Major
Concerto III in A Major
Concerto V in B-flat Major
Appendix: Cadenzas by Robert E. Seletsky
