In June 2018 the yellow label released Lozakovich’s critically acclaimed debut album, of Bach’s two violin concerti with the Kammerorchester des Symphonieorchesters des Bayerischen Rundfunks and the solo partita No. 2, which gave Lozakovich a fantastic platform to introduce his musical thinking to a wider public.

Reviews and quotes.

„It goes without saying that the innate talent of the young Swedish violinist demonstrates a stunning interpretative maturity, an exquisite musicality and a perfect and absolute knowledge of the pieces he plays.“

Opera World, Germán García Tomás, 09.12.2018

„Daniel Lozakovich draws mellifluous sonorities from his 1713 ‘Baron Rothschild’ Stradivari in this debut disc, which is an outstanding and distinctive addition to the already heavily pregnant Bach catalogue.“

The Strad, Robin Stowell, 24.10.2018

„pure genius“

ResMusica, Jacques Schmitt, 22.07.2018

„The Swedish violinist [...] plays with great purity of style“

Le Temps, Julian Sykes, 21.07.2018

„Daniel Lozakovich […] impressed with the expressive depth of his playing and technical qualities“

24 Heures, Rocco Zacheo, 20.07.2018

„Sunday afternoon brought […] the debut of the strikingly young Swedish violinist Daniel Lozakovich […] playing Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3. He did so with poise, tonal purity, and technique to spare. An encore by Fritz Kreisler gave him the chance for pyrotechnic display that the Mozart does not afford, and he used it to maximum effect.“

The Boston Globe, Jeremy Eichler, 09.07.2017
