Has a result of his interest for modern creation and contemporary music, Antonio Duro has established frequent associations with many composers and specialized ensembles, expanding his technical abilities to include the wide possibilities of the electric guitar. He is also co-founder of the project Guitar+, a collaboration between several Schools of Music and Universities dedicated to enhance the possibilities of the modern chamber music with guitar within the Erasmus Project frame.
