VC Artist Daniel Lozakovich Signs to Warner Classics

The 23-year-old Swedish violinist has moved labels from DG


In this exclusive signing, VC Artist Daniel Lozakovich’s first album for Warner Classics is due for release in August 2024. It will feature pianist Mikhail Pletnev alongside Lozakovich playing Franck’s Sonata for Violin and Piano, Grieg’s Violin Sonata No. 3 and ‘Solveig’s Song’ from Peer Gynt, Shostakovich’s ‘Romance’ from The Gadfly and a Violin Sonata jointly composed by Alexi Shor and Pletnev himself.

"While very much a young player of today, he is an artist whose poetry and integrity place him in the great tradition of the 20th-century violinists who set the benchmarks for the recorded catalogue," said President of Warner Classics & Erato Alain Lanceron.

"My main goal in joining this legendary label is to have artistic freedom, create a musical world, and record works of immortal beauty with musicians I love," Lozakovich said. "For me, making music is a spiritual key to unlocking the truth of the soul."

Represented by HarrisonParrot artist management agency, Lozakovich had signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon at aged 15. In 2018, he released his debut album of Bach’s two violin concertos in collaboration with Kammerorchester des Symphonieorchesters des Bayerischen Rundfunks together with the solo Partita No.2.

Lozakovich has been awarded many prizes including first prize at the 2016 Vladimir Spivakov International Violin Competition and the Young Artist of the Year 2017 award at the Festival of Nations, the Premio Batuta Award in Mexico, and the Excelentia Prize under the honorary presidency of Queen Sofia of Spain. Lozakovich studied at the Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe with Professor Josef Rissin from 2012 and graduated with Master’s Degree in 2021.

In 2023/24, he performs his recital debut in Carnegie Hall and Grand Hall of the Concertgebouw, a tour with Oslo Philharmonic and Klaus Mäkelä which leads him to Oslo Konserthuset, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Paris Philharmonie and Vienna Konzerthaus. The season also sees him appear with Budapest Festival Orchestra at Edinburgh Festival under Iván Fischer, Netherlands Philharmonic and Marc Albrecht at the Concertgebouw, as well as Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai with Kazuki Yamada, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and Fabien Gabel, San Diego Symphony and Rafael Payare, Royal Danish Orchestra under Osmo Vänskä.

Lozakovich opened the 2022/23 season with his debut appearance at the BBC Proms, performing Brahms with BBC Symphony Orchestra and Fabien Gabel in the Royal Albert Hall. He was the season’s Artist in Residence with Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, performing concertos and recitals across the season. That season also included a concert with Oslo Philharmonic under Klaus Mäkelä, a subscription series debut with Filarmonica della Scala in Teatro Alla Scala conducted by their Music Director Riccardo Chailly, and further concerts with Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, and Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse on tour, under its new Chief Conductor Tarmo Peltokovski.
