Together with his long-time duo partner Herbert Schuch, Daniel Müller-Schott has recorded an all-Grieg album, which is finally released today.
Edvard Grieg, arguably the most popular composer ever to emerge from the Scandinavian peninsula, made an important contribution to the canon of chamber music, especially with his violin sonatas. He only wrote one piece for cello and piano (op. 36). Daniel Müller-Schott, who always strives to expand the musical repertoire for his instrument and has a fine feeling for transcriptions, has transcribed the Violin Sonata in C minor op. 45 No. 3 for the cello and recorded it for the first time for this album, which is his 20th album on the label Orfeo. In addition to the Cello Sonata in A minor op. 36, other selected songs of varying character transcribed for cello and piano can also be heard.
