Daniel Lozakovich’s rich, romantic style of playing often sees him likened to the iconic violinists of the 20th century. On Spirits, his latest Deutsche Grammophon recording, he celebrates some of his forebears in the hope of passing on their style and repertoire to younger generations.  “I’ve chosen a selection of very accessible miniatures, which I associate with different violinists,” he explains. “All these musicians had such strong, soulful spirits that it’s impossible to forget their sound.” Partnered by pianist Stanislav Soloviev, Lozakovich performs favourite encores by Elgar, Debussy, Falla, Gluck, Brahms and Kreisler. Spirits will be released digitally on 24 March 2023.

The album opens with Elgar’s Salut d’amour, Lozakovich’s tribute to the only one of the violinists honoured here that he knew personally – Ivry Gitlis, who died in 2020. “This piece represents him because it’s about love, and living in the moment, and he was a free spirit who did everything with so much love.” The same composer’s sparkling La Capricieuse is one of just eight pieces recorded by Josef Hassid, who died tragically young. “It was Hassid’s one and only recording that inspired me to record this album,” says Lozakovich. “He had such intelligence, technique, sound and soul.”
