"Not just the Brahms, but the Poulenc, Debussy, and Berg pieces, are all superbly played. Alves's tone is rich and woody, but also sufficiently nuanced to adapt itselft to different styles and technical demands of each of these works." (in Fanfare, USA 2012)

( Principal Horn at the "National Symphony Orchestra- Washington D.C.")
( Principal Guest Horn at the "Berlin Philharmonic")

"Throughout his brilliant career, he has had the privilege of working with some of the best and most prestigious musicians in the world, which should be sufficient to describe his magnificent performance. However, I cannot overemphasize his admirable work capacity and his constant search for perfection and sometimes even for the unattainable."

Carlos Alves

Caio Pagano
(Internationally renowned pianist and Professor at the Arizona State University)

"Carlos Alves is among the few Portuguese musicians that are recognized abroad at the highest level. His first concert in the USA, followed by his first album with me, immediately received criticism that stands out, and his sound has been compared to some of the greatest clarinetists of today."

António Victorino D'Almeida
(Maestro and Composer)

"… a remarkable musician, not only for the extraordinary technique with which he masters the instrument in the most diverse repertoires, but also by the extreme musicality of his interpretations, that can only be attributed to his vast musical culture. Carlos Alves is undoubtedly one of the musicians entrusted with the development of the reputation of Portuguese music..."

Mario Laginha
(Jazz Pianist and Composer)

"… a musician with an unusual technique and a great knowledge of the clarinet. His enormous interpretative capacity and power of communication make him a rare case in our – or any – musical scene."
