“Lozakovich is a serious artist and demands to be taken seriously; he already plays like one of the greats or, better said, like one of the great players of the past. His tone … resonates with the Romantic warmth of such forebears as Christian Ferras or Jascha Heifetz.”
Hamburger Abendblatt, August 2019
