His debut CD “Guitar Recital” released by Naxos has been acclaimed by the specialized critics: “… three Dowland chromatic fantasies… are for me benchmark performances, with immaculate clarity of line, feel, and purpose.” (Soundboard Magazine); “Another outstanding talent and I hope this well-recorded disc is a stepping-stone to the international guitar scene.” (David's Review Corner); “Joao Carlos Victor had presented us a convincing „business card “which make us curious!” (Gitarre & Laute); “A great success.” (Guitare Classique).
