Duo Siqueira Lima is one of the most prestigious chamber ensembles having won the Profissionais da Música Award 2015 in Brazil and the International Press Award 2014 in the United States. Their work features music of the classical repertoire as well as popular music of Latin America.
Cecilia Siqueira and Fernando de Lima are recognized for their technical and interpretive virtuosity as well as for their daring and original arrangements for two guitars.
Since 2003, they have toured the world performing in major European capitals, many cities in North America as well as sojourns to Africa and Russia. They are favorites throughout the major music centers in Latin America and in the prestigious halls in Lincoln Center (New York), New World Center (Miami), Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) among others.
"Cecilia Siqueira, from Uruguay, and Fernando de Lima, from Brazil were more geographically diverse in pieces as finely detailed as a Fabergé egg."
