Daniel Lozakovich





“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

Violinist Daniel Lozakovich’s majestic music-making has left critics and audiences spellbound. “Perfect mastery. An exceptional talent,” observed Le Figaro after a performance in Verbier Festival, while the Boston Globe praised the “poise, tonal purity, and technique to spare” of his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons at the Tanglewood Festival in July 2017.

Daniel was born in Stockholm in 2001 and began playing the violin when he was almost seven. He made his solo debut two years later with the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra and Vladimir Spivakov in Moscow.
Aged 15, Lozakovich signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon, and in 2018 released his debut album of Bach’s two violin concertos in collaboration with the Kammerorchester des Symphonieorchesters des Bayerischen Rundfunks together with the solo Partita No. 2. The album reached number 1 in the all music category of the French Amazon charts and the classical album charts in Germany. 
“None but the lonely heart”, Lozakovich’s second album, was released in 2019. Dedicated to Tchaikovsky, it includes the Violin Concerto, and the disc was recorded live with the National Philharmonic of Russia and Vladimir Spivakov. "Grammophone“ Magazine named this recording as “Top choice” spanning 70 years of best recordings of Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto.  
Lozakovich’s third album, released in 2020, centres on the Beethoven Violin concerto, again recorded live, with the Münchner Philharmoniker under Valery Gergiev, and released as an audio album and e-video, in the 250th Beethoven anniversary year. An incredibly significant project to Lozakovich, who regards the concerto as one of the all-time greatest concerti ever written. 
 On Spirits, his latest 4th Deutsche Grammophon recording, he celebrates some of his forebears in the hope of passing on their style and repertoire to younger generations.  Partnered by pianist Stanislav Soloviev, Lozakovich performs favourite encores by Elgar, Debussy, Falla, Gluck, Brahms and Kreisler. 

Lozakovich studied at the Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe with Professor Josef Rissin from 2012 and graduated with Master Degree 2021.
