„Daniel Müller-Schott is without doubt a master cellist. [Review “#CelloUnlimited”, Solo Sonatas]“

BBC Music Magazine, Helen Wallace, 04.01.2020

„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

„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

„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, 01.03.2018
