The 2020-21 season was scheduled to include engagements such as his debut with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus, 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.

At 15, Lozakovich signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon, and in 2018, released his debut album of Bach’s violin concertos and the solo Partita No. 2. The album reached No. 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 with Spivakov.

Lozakovich’s third album, released in 2020, centers on the Beethoven Violin Concerto,  recorded live, with the Munich Philharmonic, 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 Beethoven 250th anniversary year. An incredibly significant project to Lozakovich, who regards the concerto as one of the greatest ever written, the album landed on the streaming release charts on Spotify and Tidal.

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 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 Josef Rissin from 2012, and from 2015 has been mentored by Eduard Wulfson in Geneva.

Lozakovich plays the ex-Baron Rothschild Stradivarius on generous loan on behalf of the owner by Reuning & Son, Boston, and Eduard Wulfson, and plays the Stradivarius Le Reynier (1727), generously lent by LVMH/Moet Hennessy/Louis Vuitton.
