Daniel Müller-Schott

Cello

Biography – about the artist.

With technical brilliance and authority, with intellect and emotional esprit, Daniel Müller-Schott is celebrated as one of the most sought-after cellists in the world. Notable conductors he collaborates with include Thomas Dausgaard, Christoph Eschenbach, Iván Fischer, Alan Gilbert, Gustavo Gimeno, Bernard Haitink, Neeme Järvi, Dmitrij Kitajenko, Susanna Mälkki, Andris Nelsons, Gianandrea Noseda, Andrés Orozco-Estrada, Kirill and Vasily Petrenko, André Previn and Krzysztof Urbański.

Müller-Schott works with orchestras such as Berlin Philharmonic, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Bayerisches Staatsorchester, the Radio Orchestras of Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Hamburg, London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic and Barcelona Symphony. In North America, he performs with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra Washington and the orchestras of Cleveland, Chicago, Philadelphia and Vancouver. Further afield, he works with the NHK Symphony and the Symphony Orchestras of Sydney, Melbourne and New Zealand.


Müller-Schott’s 19/20 season highlights include concerts with orchestras in Europe such as the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, Czech Philharmonic, Helsinki Philharmonic, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Welsh National Opera Orchestra, Tonkünstler-Orchester, Dresdner Philharmoniker, as well as further afield with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, NCPA Orchestra in China, New Japan Philharmonic and Seoul Philharmonic. As “Museums-Solist” of the Frankfurt Museum Society this season, Müller-Schott will appear in Frankfurt six times in various line-ups, among these are two concerts with the Frankfurt Museumsorchester and Giancarlo Guerrero.

Chamber music is an important part of Müller-Schott’s music-making. In addition to playing with ‘Anne-Sophie Mutter and Friends’ in an extended orchestra and chamber music tour in Europe, Asia and the US throughout Beethoven’s anniversary year in 2020, Müller-Schott collaborates with Kit Armstrong, Bertrand Chamayou, Sabine Meyer, Olli Mustonen, Francesco Piemontesi, Simon Trpčeski as well as the Aris Quartett and Quatuor Modigliani in festivals including the Schubertiade, Heidelberger Frühling, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and venues such as Tonhalle Düsseldorf, Louvre Paris and Wigmore Hall London.

Recording for Orfeo, Müller-Schott’s extensive and award-winning discography includes his latest recording of works by Richard Strauss with pianist Herbert Schuch and Don Quixote with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Sir Andrew Davis. He anticipates the releases of his solo cello disc #CelloUnlimited which contains works for cello solo of the 20th and 21st century, as well as the Beethoven-Jubilee-Box by Deutsche Grammophon which features his recording of the last musical ideas by Beethoven together with Daniel Hope and Friends.

Müller-Schott received the 2013 Aida Stucki Award and also benefited early on from sponsorship by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. Through this support he was taught privately by the late Mstislav Rostropovich for a year. Müller-Schott also studied with Walter Nothas, Heinrich Schiff and Steven Isserlis. In 1992 Müller-Schott won first prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition, Moscow. He plays the “Ex Shapiro” Matteo Goffriller cello, Venice, 1727.

Press.

„Müller-Schott adds to his growing list of accomplished recordings with this exciting release of two major cello works by Richard Strauss. […] It says a great deal about Müller-Scott that he need not fear comparison with the performances by some of the greatest cellists of the last century, such as Fournier, Rostropovich and Tortelier.“

The Classic Review, David A. McConnel, 28.08.2019

„Schumann’s Cello Concerto felt more like a love song, and Muller-Schott sang it beautifully, his penetrating tone reminiscent of the voice of a lyric tenor. Schumann was a conflicted man and Muller-Schott evoked that with phrases that quickly shifted from bright to aggressive. His second-movement duet with principal cellist Anthony Ross proved an intimate and involving conversation, and Muller-Schott’s final cadenza was far more contemplative than customary, making the finale’s flurry of frenzied notes a stirring contrast.“

Twin Cities, Minnesota, Rob Hubbard, 10.05.2018

„“This performance glowed. It captured these sentiments superbly. Daniel Müller-Schott’s tone and technical facility were beyond criticism, and his reading was heart-achingly sensitive: tenderly sentimental and nostalgic, yet not in the least maudlin.”“

Seen and Heard International, Ian Lace, 26.04.2018

„“Dvořák’s Cello Concerto has unearthed some wonderful performers in its hundred-year-plus history. Daniel Müller-Schott is no exception and produced an account in which he fully identified with the work’s changeable emotions. […] Müller-Schott found just the right blend of sugar-coated musing and generous warmth, both qualities captivating in the closing pages of the Finale.“

Classical Source, David Truslove, 25.04.2018

„Everything sounds as if it was originally conceived for cello, with the added bonus of wider tessitural possibilities, which are nicely utilised in these transcriptions and tempered by a beautifully clear recording. Expert and stylish performances from Müller-Schott and the period orchestra L’Arte del Mondo present a magical partnership, tasteful playing coupled with judiciously elegant shaping of phrases.[…] a brilliantly executed, beautifully recorded and tremendously enterprising project. [about the recording „#Celloreimagined“]“

The Strad, Joanne Talbot, (review about the recording „#Celloreimagined“), 01.03.2018
