Reviews

"Juan es un compositor talentosísimo, una persona jovial, confiable y con los sentimientos a flor de piel, todo esto reflejado en su música. Cada obra que he escuchado y que he tenido el privilegio de interpretar es maravillosa, requiere de mucho estudio y técnica, pero más que todo amor y dedicación y eso te hace disfrutarla aún más."
Paula Burgos
Conductor
Uno de los mayores exponentes del melodismo neo-romántico centroamericano; la música instrumental y coral de Guerra ha sido interpretada a lo largo de Latinoamérica y los Estados Unidos. El estilo lírico en su música es combinado con novedosas propuestas armónicas y un lenguaje de orquestación muy idiomático y escrito a la medida de cada instrumento del ensamble.
Dr. Luis Víquez
Conductor and Clarinetist
"Juan Carlos’s music is vibrant, passionate and colorful. I have had the privilege of playing several of his works and premiering a couple and they are truly delightful. If you have not experienced his music yet, you should!"
Dr. Rebeca Ordóñez Rodriguez
Pianist
