Having performed concerts regularly for the last five years, Gabriel Bianco has earned first prize in multiple international competitions in Austria (Vienna), Germany (Koblenz), France (Ile de Ré and Barbezieux ), Poland (Tychy) and Portugal (Sernancelhe). His most recent win at the 2008 Guitar Foundation of America Competition has earned him the coveted 50-concert tour in the United States, Mexico, and Canada with additional concerts in China, Colombia, and Brazil.
Gabriel Bianco is certainly no stranger to the spotlight. He has already performed in over 30 music festivals across the word in France, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Romania, Portugal, Slovakia, and Thaïland. At the age of 12, he performed for French television (Mezzo), and later appeared on Romanian television (TVR Cultura).
Born into a family of musicians, Gabriel received an early start on the guitar, receiving lessons with his father at age 5. A few years later, he began his studies in Paris with Ramon de Herrera at the Conservatoire National de Région, Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris and later at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris where he received the highest performance distinction under the teaching of Olivier Chassain. Since 2005 Gabriel has studied with French virtuoso Judicael Perroy.
