Beethoven: Violin Concerto: Daniel Lozakovich / Munich Philharmonic - Valery Gergiev
“Lozakovich is a serious artist and demands to be taken seriously; he already plays like one of the greats or, better said, like one of the great players of the past. His tone … resonates with the Romantic warmth of such forebears as Christian Ferras or Jascha Heifetz.”
Hamburger Abendblatt, August 2019
Violinist Daniel Lozakovich’s majestic music-making has left critics and audiences spellbound. “Perfect mastery. An exceptional talent,” observed Le Figaro after a performance in Verbier Festival, while the Boston Globe praised the “poise, tonal purity, and technique to spare” of his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons at the Tanglewood Festival in July 2017.." from his website: lozakovich.com
Research shows huge surge in Millennials and Gen Zers streaming classical music
"Classical music is becoming more popular among young people, according to new joint research by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, streaming service Deezer, and British Phonographic Industry (BPI).
Of those streaming classical music in the last year, a third (34 percent) were 18 to 25 years old. Over the same period, classical streams by listeners under 35 rose by 17 percent.
A decade ago, data published by BPI showed just a tenth of classical listeners were under 30, while the vast majority (70 percent) were over the age of 50.
Classical had a second ‘spike’ when lockdown hit in March, as both modern classical artists and more traditional composers were suddenly a hit among younger listeners. The report, which looks at official streaming data on Deezer, a competitor of Spotify, shows that over three months, global plays of classical music among 18 to 25-year-olds grew by 11 per cent.
Mozart and Bach are the platform’s most popular classical composers, while streams of female pianists including Khatia Buniatishvili and Martha Argerich soared during that three-month period.." from the article: Research shows huge surge in Millennials and Gen Zers streaming classical music.."
