Composer, singer, violinist, and music publisher Giambattista Cimador was born Giovanni Battista Cimadoro in 1761 in Venice into a noble family. Having studied the violin, cello and piano, his first composition Ati e Cibele was performed in Venice in 1789. This was soon followed by Pimmalione, a monodrama after Rousseau for tenor and orchestra. He moved to London in 1791 where he was active as a music teacher and piano soloist. Around 1800 he joined forces with fellow Italian and music publisher Tebaldo Monzani. From 1803, the firm of Monzani & Cimador operated from the Opera Music Warehouse at no. 2 Pall Mall. Cimador was active in rearranging works by Mozart. Arias, duets, trios, etc. were taken from operatic works and arranged to be accompanied by piano, violin, or flute. He died in February 1895.
