Amarilis Dueñas (1998) began with her musical studies at the age of three. She currently studies at the HfMT Köln with Maria Kliegel – modern cello – and Rainer Zipperling – baroque cello and viola da gamba.
her many performances throughout Europe, Amarilis has been awarded in competitions such as International Pau Casals Award and Jeunesses Musicales Spain.
Her musical education has also been enriched with Jordi Savall, Natalia Gutman and Bruno Cocset,
Amarilis has made several recordings with the orchestra Kölner Akademie and her debut solo álbum “Soliloqvies” was released in 2020, where the critics highlighted her mastery of dynamics, agogics, phrasing
Dueñas’ work orbits historical interpretation, as her goal as an artist is to get as close as possible to the “authentic” way of playing the different compositions. A life surrounded by treatisies and historical
documents, that does not necessarily stick to early music exclusively.
Her main chamber music activity is done with the Ensemble La Réjouissance, Duo
Sempiterno and Trio Alterna.
