Violinist Daniel Lozakovich’s majestic music-making has left critics and audiences spellbound. “Perfect mastery. An exceptional talent,” observed Le Figaro, while the Boston Globe praised the “poise, tonal purity, and technique to spare”.

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

Daniel Lozakovich 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. Lozakovich studies at the Karlsruhe University of Music with Professor Josef Rissin since 2012, and from 2015 has been mentored by Eduard Wulfson in Geneva. Daniel had also studied with Mikhail Kazinik and Gerhard Schulz. Awarded many prizes including 1st prize at the 2016 Vladimir Spivakov International Violin Competition and “The Young Artist of the Year 2017” award at the Festival of the Nations, “Premio Batuta” in Mexico, and the “Excelentia Award” in Spain.

Daniel Lozakovich collaborates with some of the world’s eminent conductors, including Ádám Fischer, Semyon Bychkov, Neeme Järvi, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Andris Nelsons, Vasily Petrenko, Tugan Sokhiev, Christoph Eschenbach, and Leonard Slatkin. Lozakovich performs with such orchestras as the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Münchner Philharmoniker, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Gulbenkian Orchestra, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and many more. As a chamber musician, he has collaborated with such artists as Emanuel Ax, Sergei Babayan, Alexander Romanovsky, and Denis Matsuev.

A highly-regarded recitalist, he has made appearances at Les Grandes Voix – Les Grands Solistes in Salle Gaveau, Tonhalle Zurich, Victoria Hall Geneva, Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi di Milano, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Salle Gaveau, and Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie. A regular at international music festivals, including the Verbier Festival, the Riga Jurmala Music Festival, the Gstaad Menuhin Festival, Baltic Sea Festival, White Nights Festival, Tanglewood Music Festival, Blossom Music Festival, Pacific Music Festival, Colmar Festival, Festival de Saint-Denis and many more.

He signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon in June 2016, soon after his 15th birthday. The deal made him the youngest member of DG’s family of artists. Lozakovich’s first recording for Deutsche Grammophon was released in June 2018 and featured Bach’s two concerti for violin and orchestra, and the Partita No. 2 in D minor for solo violin. The outstanding success of this debut album was marked in the music charts, the album reaching number 1 on the French Amazon overall charts and number 1 in the classical album charts in Germany. “None but the Lonely Heart”, Lozakovich’s second album for the Yellow Label, was released in October 2019. Dedicated to the music of Tchaikovsky, it includes the Violin Concerto and the song from which the album takes its name: the Romance, Op.6 No.6, “None but the lonely heart”.
