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“
