The guitar Duo Blanco Sinacori is a union between italian classical guitarists Alessandro Blanco and Giuseppe Sinacori, who melt together their extraordinary guitar techniques into a modern and innovative sound.
Mentors of their musical and artistic journey are Giovanni Puddu and Antonello Farulli.

The Duo have represented Italy during the celebration of the Republic in the Italian Embassy in Gabon (Africa), they’ve played in the most beautiful concert halls in Switzerland, in Georgia during the 1st International Festival of Chamber Music in Martivili, in the United States of America they have played in tounèe in Arkansas and in the prestigious “Carnegie Hall” in New York. In July 2017 they started a concert tour in China playing in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Jinan, in a prestigious theatres such as the Shandong Grand Theatre and Guangzhou Opera House.
Their ability to reinterpret a classical repertoire in a very personal and unique way has inspired many composers to the writing of pieces to be played by two guitars.
In 2011 composer Roberto Carnevale dedicated to the Duo Noli4 that was first executed at Palazzo delle Feste in Bardonecchia (TO) for the Musical Academy of Pinerolo. In the same year composer Melo Mafali wrote for them Divertimento for 2 Guitars.
From 2013 they’ve been attending a chamber section at the International Piano Academy “Incontri col Maestro” of Imola under the influence of Antonello Farulli. This collaboration gave birth to a new recording project produced by Almendra Music that gathers Opera Symponies transcribed by the Duo and mixed with musical interludes written for the two guitarists by the composer Maurizio Pisati.
Alessandro and Giuseppe play guitars that were carefully hand-made by Sicilian luthier Vincenzo Candela.
