Biography – about the artist.

Daniel Lozakovich, whose majestic music-making leaves both critics and audiences spellbound, was born in Stockholm in 2001 and began playing the violin when approaching seven years of age. He made his solo debut two years later with the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra and Vladimir Spivakov. Lozakovich now regularly performs with such orchestras as the Orchestre National de France, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI, Gulbenkian Orchestra and the Munchner Philharmoniker. He collaborates the world’s eminent conductors including Semyon Bychkov, Christoph Eschenbach, Valery Gergiev, Neeme Järvi, Klaus Mäkelä, Andris Nelsons, Vasily Petrenko, Lahav Shani, Tugan Sokhiev, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Nathalie Stutzmann, Krzysztof Urbanski and Lorenzo Viotti.

Recent highlights include Lozakovich’s return invitation to the Boston Symphony Orchestra in subscription with Nelsons, his New York debut at the Mostly Mozart Festival with Louis Langrée, debuts with the Cleveland Orchestra with Mäkelä and the LA Philharmonic with Salonen. Notable touring highlights include engagements in Japan and Asia with Valery Gergiev, and the hr-Sinfonieorchester under Andrés Orozco-Estrada. A remarkable 2020/21 season was scheduled to include engagements such as Lozakovich’s debut with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Oslo Philharmonic, Orquestra Nacional de Espana, and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo.


A highly sought after recitalist, having performed in some of the world’s most prestigious venues, Lozakovich has made appearances at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Fondation Louis Vuitton, Tonhalle Zürich, Victoria Hall Geneva, Conservatorio G. Verdi Milan and the Mariinsky Theatre. On tour he has appeared at Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw and this season, he returns to the Konzerthaus Wien. Lozakovich is regular at international music festivals, including the Verbier Festival, Sommets musicaux de Gstaad, Festival Rotterdam, White Nights Festival, Moscow Easter Festival, Tsinandali Festival, Festival de Pâques – Aix-en-Provence, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, Tanglewood Music Festival, Blossom Music Festival and the Pacific Music Festival. Lozakovich enjoys collaborations with the likes of Ivry Gitlis, Emanuel Ax, Renaud Capuçon, Shlomo Mintz, Denis Matsuev, Khatia Buniatishvili, George Li, Seong-Jin Cho, Martin Fröst and Maxim Vengerov.

Aged 15, Lozakovich signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon, and in 2018 released his debut album of Bach’s violin concerti and the solo partita No. 2. The album reached number 1 in the 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 Orchestra of Russia and Spivakov. Lozakovich’s third album, released in 2020, centres on the Beethoven Violin concerto, again recorded live, with the Munchner Philharmoniker, together with Lozakovich’s close artist partner and the orchestra’s Chief Conductor, 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, the album reached the streaming release charts on Spotify and Tidal.

Lozakovich has been 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, the Premio Batuta Award in Mexico, and the Excelentia Prize under the honorary presidency of Queen Sofia of Spain. Lozakovich studied at the Karlsruhe University of Music with Professor Josef Rissin from 2012, and from 2015 has been mentored by Eduard Wulfson in Geneva. Daniel Lozakovich plays the “ex-Baron Rothschild” Stradivari on generous loan on behalf of the owner by Reuning & Son, Boston, and Eduard Wulfson and plays the Stradivarius Le Reynier (1727), generously loaned by LVMH / MOET HENNESSY.

Press.

„What impresses me most, perhaps, is that his taste is as exquisite as his open-heartedness and technical finesse. He brings a light touch to salon bonbons like the ‘Mélodie’ and Valse sentimentale, and manages to find warmth even in the sparkling staccato and spiccato passages of the Valse-Scherzo.“

Gramophone, Andrew Farach-Colton, 02.03.2020

„Lozakovich is a serious artist who should be taken seriously; he already plays like one of the greats […]“

Hamburger Abendblatt, Marcus Stäbler, 14.08.2019

„This was no rigid, perfunctory reading by an 18-year-old prodigy. This was the heartfelt work of a consummate professional, a performance as sincere and moving as anyone’s […]. He also had mature senses of melody and expression, the ability to inject and measure out feeling at just the right times and in just the right doses, without excess. […] No wonder his encore, the Adagio from Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 1, was also transcendent.“

cleveland.com, Zachary Lewis, 22.07.2019

„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“
