Critical praise for

'delicately sumptuous, featuring gorgeous interplay'
'mysterious pianissimos maintained with beautiful sound & focus'
'the overall effect is immense satisfaction'
'allowing the technical
virtuosity to sparkle'
'incredible musicality of the performers.'


A NovAntiqua Records production, MOONWALK features sonatas by Brahms and Saint-Saëns and miniatures by Debussy, Busoni and Reger.  

Tommaso's first recording project in partnership with his father, pianist Alexander Lonquich, captured by the Grammy-winning wizardry of Peter Laenger.

"A prize-winning performance.”

   The Evening Standard - London 


"A performance full of crisp rhythmic interactions

and broad, eloquent melodic phrasing"

   The San Francisco Chronicle


"Mr. Lonquich's virtuosity dazzled,

and the crowd's reaction

was a vociferous standing ovation, 

A feeling of sheer joy filled the hall."


   Oberon's Grove - New York


Praise by audience and press for Schackenborg Musikfest, of which Tommaso Lonquich is the co-Founder and co-Artistic Director. 


The Jydske Vestkysten writes: "Who would have thought that Schackenborg Musikfest is a wobbly infant with just a single summer behind it, when already in season 2 it is moving forward with the artistic muscles of a mature veteran?  There are (fortunately) more and more music festivals in the Danish countryside, but there is none that I know of that has established its right to exist so naturally, with such great weight, so quickly." 


The Festival takes place on the grounds of the former Royal Castle of Schackenborg, a magical setting in one of the most beautiful areas of Denmark.

 Launched in 2021, the festival has already been attended by thousands of audience members who have experienced 30 distinguished guests incl. Christian Tetzlaff, Nicolas Altstaedt, Alexander Lonquich, Mojca Erdmann, Anneleen Lenaerts and the Vertavo Quartet, among others.


  The 2024 edition will feature 5 concerts, 20 composers and 11 artists, including the fabuluous duo of mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre and lutist Thomas Dunford, who visit us from Paris for an idyllic program in the perfect acoustics of Møgeltønder Church. Inspiring violinist Julia Pusker, a Queen Elizabeth Competition prizewinner, will join us from Hungary. Denmark will be represented by the outstanding young violist Nicholas Algot Swensen, as well as by beloved pianist Katrine Gislinge, who will enchant the Castle hall with a special evening dedicated to the piano. 

   The development of exceptional young talent is a priority.  The 2024 edition will feature the fantastic Trio Orelon, which has already established itself as one of Germany’s most exciting and inspiring young ensembles, after being crowned as first-prize winner of the ARD International Music Competition.
