The Italian violin player and composer Teresa Millanollo made her début on 17 April 1836 in the theatre of Mondovi, before moving with her family to France. In December 1836 she gave a benefit concert in Brussels, which marked the beginning of her lifelong concern for the poor. The high point of her career was her six-year period of concert tours from 1842 with her sister Maria (who died suddenly of tuberculosis in 1848.) A series of extended European tours took them to England, France, Belgium, Germany, Bohemia, Switzerland and northern Italy, rivalling Paganini in artistic and financial success. The day of her last public concert, on 16 April 1857, Teresa married Théodore Parmentier, an army engineer and amateur musician of some repute. The great Joachim described her as "one of the most delightful and sympathetic artists that he had ever met."
