Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Maria Theresia Paradis was born in Austria
in 1759. She had lost her eyesight at a very early age. Nevertheless, by the
age of sixteen she was already a noted vocalist and pianist in Vienna and had
commissioned works from Salieri, Haydn and Mozart. She emerged on concert tours
to Paris and London as well as other major European cities. During one of her
tours, she started composing music, mostly for piano and pieces for voice and
keyboard. One of her most famous works is the Sicilenne in E flat Major for piano quartet. This work was
transcribed in the 20th century for violin and piano by Samuel
Dushkin. Korbinian Altenberger
