"Born of a noble family, [Cimador] studied the violin, cello and piano. In 1789 his Ati e Cibele, a favola per musica in two short scenes, was performed in Venice. This was soon followed by Pimmalione, a monodrama after Rousseau for tenor and orchestra with a small part for soprano, and Il ratto di Proserpina. ... In 1791 Cimador moved to London, where he taught singing and was, as is recorded in The Gentleman's Magazine, ‘a celebrated vocal performer’. He visited Bath in 1794 with Haydn, who referred to him as a violin virtuoso and composer." Rodney Slatford and Marita P. McClymonds in Grove Music Online.
