Duo Siquiera Lima playing Handel

Duo Siquiera Lima (Cecilia Siquiera and Fernando de Lima) caught my attention while looking for duets to play with my sons. Here they are playing Handel’s Chaconne in G major.

And, if you have time to witness more extraordinary playing, this video culminates with the 3rd movement of Astor Piazzolla’s Tango Suite.

 

 

Artist Profile: Enno Voorhorst

I first came across Enno Voorhorst‘s name when looking for videos of Agustín Barrios Mangoré’s music. I was pleasantly surprised when I found his video of Las abejas (The Bees). This short gem of a piece is so light, musical, and effortless in Enno’s hands, it almost looks simple.

Hailing form Holland, Enno Voorhorst, is a very active guitarist in Europe and is based in The Netherlands. In addition to his full length recordings of Bach and Ponce, his affinity for the music of Barrios shines brilliantly in his Naxos recording and a more recent recording.

Here is a wonderful video of Enno performing his arrangement of George Frederic Händel’s Chaconne HWV435. Besides some extraordinarily beautiful playing, I find the sound he produces and the voice of the guitar truly luxurious.

Hope that inspires everyone!
