At aged 15, Lozakovich signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon, and in 2018 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. The album reached number one in the all-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 National Philharmonic of Russia and Vladimir Spivakov. In February 2023, Gramophone named this recording as Top Choice spanning 70 years of best recordings of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto.
His third album, released in 2020, centers on the Beethoven Violin Concerto, again recorded live with Münchner Philharmoniker under Valery Gergiev, and released as an audio album and e‑video in Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year. This is an incredibly significant project to Lozakovich, who regards the concerto as one of the all-time greatest concerti ever written. His latest album, Spirits, pays tribute to seven of the most iconic violinists of the 20th century, reflecting their virtuosic style in works by Elgar, Debussy, Falla, Gluck, Brahms and Kreisler.
